Small UAS systems have been proliferating at an accelerating speed and they are having an impact in all parts of our lives. Their uses span from commercial, military, hobbyist, farming, logistics and much more. With this expansive growth come new and emerging threats. UAS have proven to be useful weapons on the battlefield where they can be used for reconnaissance and to cause harm. But domestic agencies have had a rising cause for concern because terrorist organizations, narco gangs, organized crime and other domestic groups have started to use UAS for nefarious causes. In this year’s conference we will be focusing on CUAS challenges & solutions for both military and domestic agencies. Counter UAS 2018 was a resounding success in this new space thanks in big part to our reputable speaker faculty, sponsors, and 200+ attendees from the industry, all branches of the military and domestic security agencies. For Counter UAS 2019 we have planned on building on that success by putting together a robust program with high caliber speakers and decision makers. The biggest key to the success of the conference will be our attendees, our partners and the connections we all make in pursuit of a singular goal, identifying and providing the most innovative and cutting edgy CUAS solutions to the government, military and warfighters. This year’s summit will cover topics including: Military's Counter-UAS acquisition goals Countering drone swarms Defending against autonomous UAS DOJ and DHS CUAS strategies and policies Protecting critical infrastructure from UAS DOJ and DHS CUAS acquisition priorities Countering UAS attacks by terrorists Military's Counter-UAS requirements Mounted C-UAS weapon systems Directed energy weapons

16 - 18 April Counter UAS - Europe, London, UK

https://counteruas.iqpc.co.uk/

Defining solutions to the emergent UAS threat Counter UAS 2019 addresses the key questions being asked by joint forces about the nature of the growing UAS threat and the appropriate tactics, techniques, technologies and procedures to counter it. The UAS industry has grown considerably in recent years and our ability to counter these new threats is becoming more strained. These rapidly developing systems are becoming harder to identify and track, as well as being capable of carrying larger payloads. Their potential is devastating and the consequences of inaction are growing larger. The recent incident at London Gatwick Airport has also highlighted the role the military has to play in supporting civilian organisations during crises until more effective Counter-UAS capabilities are procured by civilian operators of Critical National Infrastructure. Dealing with threats at home or abroad, in the capacity of Military Assistance to a Civilian Authority (MACA) or purely military action require new approaches and solutions in order to meet the challenges facing C-UAS specialists. The third annual C-UAS Conference provides a platform for military and industry to discuss the current developments in C-UAS capabilities, emerging technologies and the latest case studies to give real-world context to the conceptual and theoretical discussions. The proliferation of inexpensive commercial UAS democratises capabilities previously held by militaries, and enhances asymmetric threats.
