Keeping up with technology in an industry in perpetual development
The drone industry is booming! Underneath the optimism however, concerns continue to emerge about the risks that UAVs pose to public safety and security. Drone technology has developed at a faster rate than many of us could have ever imagined, leaving regulation and counter-drone capability far behind.
It is now critical that governments work with regulators and industry to develop an effective C-UAV framework, and correctly understanding the multitude of challenges that drones present is central to this. Sites of critical national infrastructure, prisons, airports, sporting venues and other stadia are at serious risk, constrained by embryonic regulation and undefined remits for threat engagement. This December, we will provide a unique platform where security professions can share their challenges with governments, regulators and industry, to assist in developing a lens for threat assessment and a framework for progression.
It is in this context that Defence IQ will host its 2nd Countering Drones Global conference this December. We look forward to seeing you in London for Europe’s number one countering drones conference, as we seek to develop complete solutions to this emerging threat.
