Conference Day One - 10 July

3:00 PM PANEL DISCUSSION HOSTED BY AVEILLANT: PREVENTING COUNTER DRONE ‘BLACK SWAN’ EVENTS THROUGH IMPROVING INTER AGENCY COOPERATION
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?
Conference Day Two - 11 July
Thursday, November 7th, 2019
The considerations for deploying a Counter UAS system can be varied and challenging depending on the organisation and its specific conditions. The system itself must fit into a legal or regulatory framework but still remain fit for purpose to deal with potentially malicious drone incursions. The most effective solutions for particular organisations could range from a surveillance system to complex neutralisation capabilities which require a much different environment in order to be used to effect. This Panel Discussion will cover these points along with:
· How to make an evaluation of a Counter UAS system and the environment in which it must operate in order to maximise its effect
· What are the technologies which will be the key drivers of Counter Drone solutions in the coming years?
· How must cost be balanced with risk in order to make UAS defence systems the most effective?
