It will also address technologies to detect and identify drones in the battlefield, and cities to prevent attacks on critical infrastructures and citizens.

The chairman of the event, Rob Thompson the Cofounder of CUAS Coalition said: “I am pleased to be named chairman of such a profound event. This summit is of importance and timely given the current state of small consumer off the shelf drones being used as weapons. As with any event there is nothing like being face to face with the speakers and learn from them directly the various techniques, policies and tactics to protect your assets from harm. The current list of speakers is very impressive. This summit stands to be the first most comprehensive of its kind and will showcase the best of the industry in their presentations and panel discussions.”
