The United States is home to 1.3 million registered drones. The Department of Homeland Security cannot quantify the number that are unregistered, but more than 7 million drones are expected to have been sold in the U.S. by 2020. As the number of drones increases, so does the likelihood that a drone will be used in a terrorist attack or other criminal activity.

The drone threat has been widely recognized for years. Unfortunately, law enforcement and regulators are continuing to scramble to find counter-UAS solutions. Despite recent progress, many promising technologies are still illegal to operate or can only be used by a select group of government agencies in very narrow circumstances. Needless to say, the counter-UAS solutions available to private owners of critical infrastructure are even more limited.

Join Mark Dombroff and Mark McKinnon, partners in Fox Rothschild’s Aviation Practice Group, for a complimentary 90-minute webinar on the latest counter-UAS technology and and examination of the hurdles that must be overcome before it can be deployed.

Topics will include:

  • Recent state and federal developments
  • Technologies that can be used today or are likely to be legalized in the near future
  • The role of the military, FAA and FCC in resolving these problems
  • Counter-UAS options for private entities
  • Potential liability for failing to deploy counter-UAS systems
  • How the failure to address state an local laws is a serious obstacle
