WEST PALM BEACH, FL / ACCESSWIRE / December 2, 2019 / Global Digital Solutions, Inc. (OTC PINK:GDSI), a company that is positioning itself as a leader in comprehensive security and technology solutions, issues the following update on the PALS technology from its President and CEO William Delgado.
GDSI is pleased to announce that our initial ground test of the PALS Enhanced Situational Awareness System have been completed at Jack Brooks' airport in Beaumont, Texas. The initial tests demonstrated the ability to image the local MALSR FAA airport lighting system (sequence flashers as well as the continuous lights associated with the cross "T" and the runway threshold).
GDSI is in the process of building the first conformal mounted pod configuration for PALS that will mount the camera to the underbody of the aircraft. Fit checks will be performed this month and final completion of the pod is expected in early first quarter. With the completion of the conformal pod, the Company will begin flight testing of the PALS system.
GDSI would like to thank the local FAA and airport management for assisting us in arranging this key test and ICI, our IR Camera vendor, for conducting the tests.
William Delgado, President and CEO of Global Digital Solutions, Inc. added "Our team is very happy with our ground testing results in Beaumont Texas. Aviation safety is at its most critical point in history, with the number of airline passengers at an all-time high. This system, we believe, will become a fundamental part of this aviation safety movement."
