The willful or malicious use of a drone to harm aircraft, infrastructure or people constitutes a security threat. With the increased reliance on data applications, there is also the risk of cyber-attacks that can lead to loss of control of a drone. Therefore, it is important to carry out a thorough assessment of the security threats associated with unauthorized drone operations at any specific airport.
Counter-UAS technology and associated measures are still in a development stage and have some limitations. In addition, the implementation of any Counter-UAS technology and measures must not create unintended safety hazards and unmitigated risks to authorized operators.
This webinar will provide an overview of best practices when it comes to risk assessment and will share details about the different C-UAS technologies and measures.
