Defence IQ Worldwide Survey Results : The Threat of Civillian Drones

LONDON, September 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

"Of those industries that are seen as particularly at-risk of unlawful drone use, 83% claim they require counter-drone solutions and are yet to fulfil this requirement..." 

Defence IQ surveyed over 450 people with an interest in unmanned aerial vehicle/counter-drone technology developments. We asked them whether they believed the threat is really as serious as many suspect and if the commercial sector is ready for major security incidents resulting from malicious or accidental drone intrusion.  

The results were quite shocking, with most participants citing their lack of awareness around current regulations and counter-drone technologies, despite recognising the dangers drones pose to airports, prisons, nuclear facilities, and other public spaces.

The event takes place in London between the 6th-8th December and will be bringing together cross-industry experts to discuss this emerging security threat. Those attending recognise that this is an issue that looks set to only get worse as civil drones proliferate more, and are looking to implement strategies now.
