What is NEOFIX?
NEOFIX is the instrument for state and local government and public safety agencies to post information for each other and drone operators which keep the airspace open, secure, and safe.
NEOFIX informs drone operators of ground rules and conditions, local issues and events, public safety incidents, hazards, and sensitive and critical infrastructure: key safety and navigation data.
NEOFIX allows information sharing in the most open way possible while also respecting operational security, privacy requirements, and public safety, enabling multiple ways to connect and share information via Internet and flight programs.
