Countering Drones Middle East is a cross military and civilian conference which looks to provide solutions to one of the region's fasting growing threats. Taking place in Amman, during the SOFEX exhibition week, this conference provides the region's only platform for military personnel, governments, CAAs, law enforcement agencies and industry to interact to deliver actionable strategies to counter enemy and criminal drone usage.
Malicious drone usage is rapidly changing the security environment across the Middle East- threatening the safety of armed forces personnel and citizens alike. The increasing frequency of these attacks and the technological advancement of the vehicles being used is truly a cause for concern. Whilst developing and implementing counter drone systems is an immediate requirement, it is imperative that strategies are adopted to stem the flow of shop bought and military specification drones to malicious parities.
In the civilian context, the uptake in drone usage by hobbyist, and in some places the continued hostilities of civil war has dramatically changed the security environment for civil aviation, policing and facility protection. Government agencies have plenty of work to do with regulators and industry experts to develop an effective counter drone framework and, as the drone threat continues to evolve and multiply, discussions must continue in an effort to stay ahead of malicious pilots.
It is in this context that Defence IQ will host the Countering Drones Middle East conference in May. We look forward to seeing you in Amman as we seek to develop complete solutions to this emerging threat.
