COUNTER UAS, ARLINGTON, MARCH 12-14, 2019
UAS production and use has grown exponentially in the last few years, and with that so has the threat of rogue drones being used for illegal, dangerous or even deadly purposes. The drones of today are harder to track, categorize, intercept and disable and with that the potential threat(s) of UAS’ being used in an attack are becoming more common and more of a global concern.
In light of these increasing threats, we are bringing back our Counter UAS series to discuss the passing of the Preventing Emerging Threats Act of 2018, which gives government agencies new authority to counter airborne drone threats, as well as the latest in C-UAS innovations and technologies.
We have been busy developing an agenda that will give you powerful examples of how this new legislation will give the DoJ and DHS unprecedented ability to "mitigate" a credible drone threat, by physically disabling the drone, taking it over, intercepting its communications, or seizing the drone itself, all without a warrant or judicial review/oversight.
Our Counter-UAS Summit will provide a forum for military leaders, program executive officers, industry executives, academics and researchers to focus on emerging and current innovative C-UAS technologies to detect, identify & neutralize drones to prevent attacks on critical infrastructures, citizens and soldiers.
This year’s summit will cover topics including:
