The rapid development of drones means that the likelihood of a “Black Swan” incident being caused by a drone is increasing. Despite the growing threat posed by cheap, adaptable drones there is more urgency now at establishing tangible methods of defence against drones, the success of which hinges on the effective cooperation of organisations from Civil through Law Enforcement all the way to Government. This panel discussion will focus on:
 
·          What practices can we employ now that reduce the likelihood that law enforcement will be restricted to reactionary Counter Drone actions?
·          Can ‘hard kill’ solutions be effectively integrated into civilian sites and, if so, under what circumstances?
·          What questions should we ask of industry in order to produce more effective Counter Drone solutions for the civilian and security sectors?
