Evolving on the ground, as drone technology advances above

Secure Your Airspace
WhiteFox Defense Technologies, Inc.
Our History

We began as a drone manufacturer. When it became apparent there was no mechanism of enforcement to protect against their misuse, we created a safe and effective counter-drone solution.

Our Future

Pioneering the safe integration of drones into society, WhiteFox’s mission is to keep the sky open for responsible pilots, advancing drone technology for a better world. WhiteFox is committed to securing trusted autonomy.

Luke Fox

CEO + Founder

Luke Fox is CEO of WhiteFox. Prior to WhiteFox, Luke successfully built and operated cyber-forensics and high-performance drone manufacturing companies. During this time, he came to recognize the power drones have to change the world—it just depends whose hands they are in. This realization spurred Luke’s vision for establishing a comprehensive market solution to ensure drones fly safely and legally.

Outside of WhiteFox, Fox is a strong, persistent advocate for children’s rights and legislative reform and is actively involved in the technology community on the central coast of California, where he lives and works. He was named to Forbes 30 Under 30 list for his ongoing innovation and advocacy.

Luke also has his own podcast, The Trust Revolution on MarketScale. There, he brings together leaders, lawmakers and lawbreakers to dissect how trust is established, shared and challenged as we enter the next great technological revolution.
