Executive Summary

  • UAS technology is a rapidly growing and dynamic industry
  • US aerospace and privacy laws have been slow to address the developments in this industry
  • There is a domestic and military need for the ability to prevent UAS intrusion AND the ability to deter the offending system, pilot, and command signals

C-UAS Counter Reconnaissance

  • Counter-reconnaissance seeks to undermine the threat’s ability to conduct reconnaissance and surveillance efforts
  • UAS plays a significant role in reconnaissance for both threat and friendly forces;
  • Thus, all counter-reconnaissance plans must account for UAS
