Mitigating the Threat Posed by Hostile Drones |
23 June 2021

Wider proliferation and availability of commercial, off the shelf drone technology continues to find its way into the wrong hands. Whilst the security industry has responded with an array of solutions to detect, track and disable these systems, many organisations remain worryingly unprepared for the credible threat posed.

CTX 2021 is pleased to present a free-to-view webinar dedicated to this important subject: Mitigating the Threat Posed by Hostile Drones. Examining the subject in detail, the webinar will cover the following key questions:

  • What technology, concepts and capabilities are now available for stopping rogue drones?
  • Where have counter drone systems been employed successfully, what lessons have been learnt and what are the operational considerations for the future?
  • How can we consolidate capability and operational concepts for a holistic approach to deploying counter drone systems?
