  • Industry, government, and law enforcement have a responsibility to work together to protect aircraft and airports from drones

    Industry, government, and law enforcement have a responsibility to work together to protect aircraft and airports from drones

    New Advisory Bulletin on drone-related disruption to aircraft operations published Montreal, 28 January 2019 – Airports Council International (ACI) World has today published an Advisory Bulletin to help airports address the risks posed by drone-related disruption to aircraft operations. ACI World believes that, while regulators and police will likely be the authority in addressing both enforcement and the preparation of anti-drone measures, all industry stakeholders must work with the relevant agencies to take action to protect the safety of aircraft operations. The recent disruption caused by the reported drone sightings at London Gatwick Airport – and recent temporary cessation of some operations at London Heathrow Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport following reported sightings of a drone – are the most widely-publicised of a series of incidents which have created debate about the best approach to preparing for – and dealing with – drone-related issues. ACI’s latest Advisory Bulletin proposes that airports lead the discussion and work closely with national authorities and local law enforcement agencies to develop a risk-based approach to dealing with the risks of drone incursions. This approach should take into account the impact on aircraft operations and available mitigation measures including anti-drone actions. “The recent drone-related disruption at airports in Europe, and their potential impact on airport safety and operations, have raised significant questions for airport operators around the world on their preparedness to handle situations like this,” ACI World Director General Angela Gittens said. “The highest authority for enforcement activities and initiating anti-drone measures will clearly be the relevant national authority, such as the Civil Aviation Authority in the case of the UK, and local law enforcement agencies. “It is incumbent on all industry stakeholders, however, to take action to protect the safety of aircraft operations in coordination with these agencies. Airport operators should be aware of national laws and regulations pertaining to drones, with an understanding that these may reside outside of civil aviation.” The Advisory Bulletin lays out actions that an airport could take to lead the discussion with governments, regulators and law enforcement agencies to strengthen anti-drone measures and mitigations; they include: Coordinating with national authorities on the creation of bylaws governing the operation of drones in the vicinity of the airport Identifying geographic boundaries of “No Drone Zones” (no fly zones for drones) on and in the vicinity of the airport, especially approach and take-off flight paths Coordinating with authorities on regulations and obtaining guidance on the requirements for airports to implement anti-drone technologies Reviewing its assessment of the security risks associated with the malicious use of drones as part of the airport Security Risk Assessment Establishing means to suppress/neutralize unauthorized drones within the airport boundary especially adjacent to runways and flight paths, and agreeing which agency is responsible for areas outside the airport boundary or not on the airport operator Ensuring that any new anti-drone measures do not create unintended safety hazards and unmitigated risks to other manned aircraft, authorized drones and aviation infrastructures, and Establishing a Concept of Operations and Standard Operating Procedure for anti-drone measures based on advice from the national authorities. ACI World has requested that members share their experience and lessons learnt on anti-drone measures and drone related incidents so that relevant practices can be adopted across the industry. Notes for editors Airports Council International (ACI), the trade association of the world’s airports, was founded in 1991 with the objective of fostering cooperation among its member airports and other partners in world aviation, including the International Civil Aviation Organization, the International Air Transport Association and the Civil Air Navigation Services Organization. In representing the best interests of airports during key phases of policy development, ACI makes a significant contribution toward ensuring a global air transport system that is safe, secure, efficient and environmentally sustainable. As of January 2019, ACI serves 646 members, operating 1,960 airports in 176 countries. ACI World’s Advisory Bulletin – Airport preparedness – Drone related disruption to aircraft operations – has now been published. ACI has issued an Advisory Bulletin in July 2016 and a Policy Paper on Drones in July 2018. https://aci.aero/news/2019/01/28/industry-government-and-law-enforcement-have-a-responsibility-to-work-together-to-protect-aircraft-and-airports-from-drones/

  • Mobilisation des idées nouvelles en maitère de défense et de sécurité

    Mobilisation des idées nouvelles en maitère de défense et de sécurité

    Orientation de la politique Protection, Sécurité, Engagement La politique de défense Protection, Sécurité, Engagement, tient compte du fait que la collaboration avec des représentants du milieu universitaire et d’autres experts renforce les fondements du processus décisionnel fondé sur des preuves. A cette fin, cette politique fournit une directive en vue d’augmenter l’investissement annuel pour financer un programme de coopération de la Défense remanié et élargi. Le programme Mobilisation des idées nouvelles en matière de défense et de sécurité (MINDS) répond à cet appel.   S’inspirer de la réussite Le programme MINDS s’inspire de la réussite du Programme de coopération de la Défense (PCD), tout en élargissant judicieusement le programme de manière à obtenir non seulement des résultats plus importants, mais de meilleurs résultats. Les consultations sont au centre de ces efforts de renouvellement. Elles ont débuté dans le cadre de l’examen de la politique de défense et se poursuivent grâce à un dialogue continu avec des experts à l’échelle du pays. Le PCD a aidé de façon efficace l’Équipe de la Défense à obtenir des conseils externes par l’entremise de sa série de conférences d’experts et de son programme de subventions de coopération ciblées. Ces éléments du programme qui se sont avérés être un succès se poursuivront. Nouvelle méthode en matière de mobilisation externe Étant une version élargie du PCD, MINDS offre un programme qui : répond aux besoins en matière de conseils pertinents et opportuns de la part des experts de la défense et de la sécurité; favorise le développement de la prochaine génération d’experts et de savants; aide la population canadienne à mieux comprendre les enjeux en matière défense et de sécurité. Le programme MINDS offre toutefois de plus grandes possibilités de collaboration entre l’Équipe de la Défense et la communauté de spécialistes de la sécurité et de la défense. Ce programme comprend les cinq principales catégories suivantes : Série de conférence d’experts, Subventions de coopération ciblées, Réseaux de collaboration, Bourses d’études et Mécanisme d’intervention rapide. Chacune de ces catégories propose différentes façons pour le ministère de la Défense nationale et les Forces armées canadiennes d’accéder rapidement à de l’expertise pertinente qui intègre divers points de vue et fournit des conseils éclairés. Ce programme vise à refléter les principales priorités du gouvernement du Canada dans le travail qu’il accomplit, veillant à ce que l’analyse comparative entre les sexes plus (ACS+) soit intégrée et appuyant la réconciliation avec les Autochtones et les activités de mobilisation des jeunes. Collaboration de l’Équipe de la Défense Le programme MINDS est différent du programme Innovation pour la défense, l’excellence et la sécurité (IDEeS), mais complémentaire à celui ci, utilisant diverses approches pour relever les défis en matière de défense et de sécurité. Le programme IDEeS propose des solutions cruciales aux défis relatifs à la technologie et aux capacités appliquées, tandis que MINDS est axé sur une réflexion stratégique et sur la production de connaissances dans le domaine des politiques publiques. Ensemble, MINDS et IDEeS stimulent l’innovation et contribuent à relever les défis en matière de défense. La politique de défense Protection, Sécurité, Engagement, propose des mesures concrètes pour améliorer la capacité de l’Équipe de la Défense d’anticiper et de comprendre les menaces, les défis et les possibilités. Pour atteindre cet objectif, il est essentiel de faire appel à l’expertise de la communauté canadienne d’experts en matière de défense et de sécurité par l’intermédiaire du programme MINDS. https://www.canada.ca/fr/ministere-defense-nationale/programmes/minds.html
