Shaping the Vision for a Military Counter-UAS Strategy

London, 16-18 April 2019


Small UAS has emerged as a new type of guerrilla airpower that modern militaries are not equipped to defeat. Incidents involving the use of commercial and man-made small drones by ISIS and by conventional forces in eastern Ukraine suggest that they are becoming an asset for both low-tech and near-peer adversaries. Industry is beginning to respond to this capability gap. Yet before acquiring C-UAS systems, a common understanding of the UAS threat and a clarification of the rules of engagement is urgently required.

Closing this gap and mapping future drone technology developments is the core objective of the upcoming C-UAS symposium. From 16-18 April 2019, the international military and intelligence community will convene for a unique exchange of ideas on how to counter the threat of small UAS. Building on the challenges and ideas raised at the 2018 Counter-UAS conference, and through the insight gained through engagement with end users and industry, attendees will have a unique opportunity to truly shape the future C-UAS doctrine and safeguard their war-fighters and freedom of movement for future operations.
