Drones and sensitive sites: Detection, Identification and Countering

The aim of this edition is to analyze threats faced by sensitive sites and the solutions to counter these.

Since 2015, Europe was plagued with reports of drone overflights over sensitive sites. In the current context of security risks and with the operational experience of ISIS adapting UAVs for combat operations the threat is ever more present: Detecting, tracking and neutralizing UAVs therefore becomes essential for any organization or structure responsible for the safety of citizens, sites or areas of operations.

The legal and operating framework will also be addressed through keynote addresses, product presentations, operational feedback as well as live demonstrations.
