Conference drones (UAS) and airspace protection - detection, defense, own operation


20 February 2020


Flight zone inddor for practical demonstrations, exhibition hall 11.1 (upper floor)

Unmanned, remote-controlled or programmed small and micro aircraft - single use or in swarm - are a growing threat. Detection and defence of such aircraft have therefore become important tasks for security authorities.

At the same time, German authorities have used drones for more than 10 years.

Detection, defence and operation by authorities are therefore the focus of this conference. Due to the classified character of some issues, there will be a conference section, which is only accessible to authorities, not even to exhibitors.
