To educate and cut through the hype of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAS)/Drones in the security industry, a panel of specialists will review multiple “use cases” for drone use and defense by a security enterprise. Consider the perspectives of an Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) licensed drone operator, a drone industry subject matter expert, and a physical security design engineer as they share their perspectives and experience. Follow their views of the practical implementation and impact of drones within a business environment. Explore a range of UAS and drone security applications, from basic through advanced, and even future applications.

Participants will be able to:

  • Explain the fundamentals and implications of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAS) and drone laws, technologies, and applications
  • Communicate how various UAS and drone countermeasures work, and how their use can be practical and legal
  • Describe the various ways UAS and drones have been used by security teams
