Counter UAS Summer 2019 Event Guide

The World’s leading Counter UAS Summit is back for it’s third information packed iteration!  Just one year ago, we were just starting to explore what Counter UAS really involved by focusing on CUAS challenges & solutions for both military and domestic agencies. One year later we have become the global go to summit that tackles a wide variety of CUAS topics ranging from protecting airports, drone swarms, directed energy weapons, EW systems, S&T challenges and counter terrorism.

Topics Covered Include:


* Military’s Counter-UAS acquisition goals
* Countering drone swarms
* Defending against autonomous UAS
* C-UAS requirements
* Protecting critical infrastructure
* Using APS to fight UAS
* Soft kill and hard kill technologies
* Use of UAS by terrorist groups
