UK Joint-GBAD perspective on counter-UAS: Exclusive insight from Colonel Giles Malec

The development of unmanned technologies is advancing at a increasingly rapid pace, encompassing simplified operation, increased UAS payload, enhanced navigation capabilities, and reduced manufacturing costs. The potential for non-state actors to employ UAS against friendly troops is growing and militaries are exploring ways to enhance SHORAD against low, small and slow UAS.

Ahead of the second annual Counter-UAS conference, Defence IQ had the opportunity to get first-hand insight on the UK Joint-GBAD from Colonel Giles Malec, its Commander and speaker at the event. In this exclusive interview, he explores the current capabilities and emerging requirements, the main challenges associated with the rules of engagement and ways UAS are changing ConOps and strategic thinking.
