D-Fend Solutions has named two vice presidents and one general manager to help the counter-drone technology provider accelerate its growth initiatives in the U.S. market.
The company on Tuesday announced the appointments of S. Danny Rajan as U.S. general manager, Michael Langman as vice president of strategic partnerships and Brett Feddersen as VP of strategy and governmental affairs.
Rajan formerly served as GM of L3Harris Technologies’ (NYSE: LHX) Wescam subsidiary. His three-decade career includes director positions at Exelis and ITT, and project engineer and manager roles at the U.S. Naval Air Warfare Center.

Langman had been working as acting VP and GM at D-Fend before he was officially named VP of strategic partnerships/business development. His expertise in business consulting stems from his experiences at McKinsey & Company, PwC and Thales USA. The former U.S. Army captain continued his career in the defense sector through companies such as Raytheon Technologies‘ (NYSE: RTX) Collins Aerospace and Wharton Aerospace, which he founded.
Prior to joining D-Fend, Feddersen focused on his role as lecturer and adjunct faculty at the National Defense University.
