“Every second, every day, 24 seven, nonstop that sensor is making those judgements and improving its capability at every location across the world where we’re deployed. We push those data sets and that learning to all the other sensors. So it just gets better and better at discerning drones versus birds versus other things that are in the airspace.”
- Timothy Bean
