Unfortunately, people and organizations will use the latest cool technology for malicious purposes and drones are certainly no exception. Further, current laws, regulations, and countermeasures are aligned with current or historical threats rather than future threats. Defenders of critical infrastructure must overcome opposing forces as well as a national inability to empower the defenders with the tools they need. During this session we will survey various forms of unmet current and future drone threats as well as review some of the challenges we face in defending against them. We will also cover some promising work in the EU, and some hope here at home.
- Examples of future drone threats
- Challenges faced by defenders
- EU and US efforts to develop counter-drone capabilities, including laws, test sites, and regulatory environments
