Supporting the Development of Civilian Counter-Drone Capability

Countering Drones LIVEdemo forum is being convened in Geneva, Switzerland. Organised with the official support of the Department for Security and Economy, Government of Geneva, the conference will identify the essential improvements to capability and regulation. It will also be the first event to include a live demonstration of counter drone technologies, hosted on a Swiss Army training range.
Airports, nuclear sites, prisons, government buildings, stadiums and other public spaces are struggling to pre-empt the drone threat. Even as commercial counter-drone solutions emerge, there is little clarity as to how these technologies may legally be deployed within a congested civilian air space. For the first time last month, a UK passenger plane came close to colliding with multiple drones in a single flight. Proof, as if it were needed, that the ongoing boom in the global RPA market has growing implications for civilian security.

Join the inaugural Countering Drones LIVEDEMO conference to:


Effectively measure and prepare for the risk posed by drones by receiving exclusive security briefings from leading international experts


Make an informed assessment of different types of counter-drone technologies and identify which system is best for your unique circumstances


Influence future policy by contributing to high-level discussions with policymakers, insurers and legal practitioners


Ensure that your organisation is aware of current developments in national security strategy, regulations and aviation legislation by hearing from senior policymakers from the UK, Europe and US


Benefit from legal and insurance policy guidance to better protect your organisation from drone-related incidents

Key questions to be addressed include:


How is drone and counter-drone technology developing and how might this impact the security of key industries?


How vulnerable is critical national infrastructure, in particular, to civilian drones? What are the current safeguards to protect against this and how can we measure this risk?


What kind of counter-drone solutions should commercial organisations employ, if any, and what might be the legal implications of their use?


Hear from industry experts on the latest counter-drone technological developments and how they plan to solve enduring challenges for government and commercial industry – from detection to disruption


What are the regulatory obstacles that stand in the way of the development and employment of different types of counter drone solutions? What measures are appropriate and in what contexts?
