Drone Security: Airport and Critical Infrastructure Strategic Initiatives
Dear Defense Industry Executive,
In uncertain situations like the one we are facing now, we are more grateful than ever for online delivery of key information. As a business leader, you need to keep making difficult decisions and will need the best industry content you can count on.
Defense Daily will provide that information you need, and to that end, we are pleased to announce a new webinar to address drone security.
It will be held Monday, April 20, 2020, 1-2:30pm EDT
As the use of recreational and commercial drones continues to increase, demand for systems to secure critical civilian infrastructure has skyrocketed — and industry has noticed. There are now more than 500 counter-UAS systems at various stages of development, more than double the number from two years ago, with different approaches to detecting, identifying and potentially mitigating carelessly or maliciously operated drones.
Airport authorities, critical infrastructure owners and operators, and various elements of the U.S. government are trying to sort out the right policies, operating plans and technologies to confront challenges posed by unauthorized drones flying in and around their facilities. The stakes are high: in 2018, drone sightings near the runway at London’s Gatwick Airport affected over 1,000 flights, causing ripples throughout the global air transit system at that time.
Learn the latest developments and upcoming plans in this exclusive Defense Daily Webinar.
In this webinar, we will address and provide expert discussion on the following:
- The challenges to critical infrastructure and populations presented by drones
- Legal and legislative advances that have already been made, and the hurdles that remain
- U.S. government testing and planning for drone security
- The spectrum of drone security needs, and where demand is the highest
- The business outlook for this rapidly-growing sector of security
