Ms. Sabina Lajdová
Aviation Security Specialist
- Understanding the challenge of small-platform detection in a congested airport environment. Enhancing Prague Airport’s ability to track targets once they enter the perimeter
- How is Prague Airport updating its existing radar systems to maximise awareness of its air space? Utilising RF detectors to support drone detection
- What capabilities will the Airport deploy to engage drones? How can drones be safely disabled without risk to public safety?
- Should international airports invest in radar systems that are multi-function, and which support longer range ATC as well as short range perimeter detection? Alternatively, are separate and bespoke solutions better-equipped to identify small airborne platforms?
- How are security personnel within airports and airlines currently preparing to combat the threat from civilian-operated drones? How do they develop risk assessments that incorporate the misuse of RPAs?
- Which counter-drone technologies are of greatest interest to airport security officers? How can airports work with industry to develop solutions that are realistically deployable?
- Establishing clear requirements for an airport-based C-UAV system. Determining optimal detection ranges, reaction times and reaction types
- Analysing the risk of a drone-led terrorist attack. To what extent should the danger from RPAs be incorporated within an airport’s broader counter-terror policy?
- If drone engagement remains legally complex, how can airports maximise their ability to detect drones within their airspace? Are commercially available radar systems sufficient to deliver the precise detection of small airborne platforms?
- If counter-drone technology is to be deployed, who should pay for it – the Airport or the national CAA?
