IMA Webinar Broadcast: Autonomous Systems Threats, Counter Autonomy, and the Challenges Facing Us

April 20, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

Today’s Drones and Future Threats: We are fairly good at detecting and tracking commercial, off the shelf UAVs (aka drones) but lack the legal and regulatory authority to effectively counter them. At the start of the presentation, we will briefly review the legal state of play for countering UAVs domestically. We are also technically ill prepared for future threats. There are many examples of drones, and drone capabilities that we are not prepared to track, investigate, or counter. We will review a number of examples of potential future drone threats to keep in mind. David Kovar, a private sector member of the NH Information and Analysis Center, will take us through these issues, the risks they pose to society, and the challenges we face in mitigating those risks.
