Critical infrastructure faces a growing threat from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones. The sophistication and carrying capacity of inexpensive drones continues to rise, while too much of our critical infrastructure remains unprotected.
Discussion topics will include:
- The real threat of drones to critical infrastructure
- How to layer technology with radar to counter dark drones
- Current legislation and how it is evolving
