Detect, Identify and Neutralise: Countering the New Threat in the Skies
The civilian market is moving closer to implementation of technology to detect, identify and neutralise malicious drone activity, however major regulatory hurdles remain before we can see the employment of drone neutralising technology. Law enforcement agencies, prisons, stadia and other facilities should celebrate the current trajectory of drone regulation, which appears to be prioritising safety and enforcement.
The threat to civilian life is diverse; in the Middle East drones have become a common terrorist tool, requiring law enforcement and militaries to adopt counter measure with immediate effect. In Europe, the focus must remain on the effective identification of drone incursions and the delivery of legislation to protect sites at risk.
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.
