Detect, Identify and Neutralise: Defending businesses, the economy and the public against disruption by drones
The drone incident at
Gatwick Airport has brought the
threat of malicious drone use into the mainstream, and the serious economic and personal impact
that this has had on businesses and private individuals cannot continue to be
For the past three years Defence IQ’s Countering Drones conference has been platforming this issue and inviting key stakeholders to join the discussion about making improvements to the regulatory environment, and examining the kinetic solutions that can support real action taking place to defeat these devices.
Following the incident at Gatwick, we now expect investment and real commitment to tackle the issues, in order to assure businesses and the public of an effective response to future incidents.
This conference is designed to support government and civilian users moving closer towards the integration of the technology that is designed to detect, identify and neutralise malicious drone activity and to overcome the regulatory hurdles that urgently require the deepest consideration. In preceding years, solution developers from industry, start ups and technology groups have joined with Airports, civil aviation authorities, facility and security managers from prisons and sporting organisations to discuss the ‘What if?’ scenario. Now that the ‘big one’ has occurred, we encourage you to join us to share your expertise and experiences with this growing community in July.
