Location: Washington, DC

The rapid proliferation of unmanned aircraft system (UAS) technology has created a number of challenges in recent years, namely the fact that the United States’ traditional air superiority is being challenged by nonstate actors and adversaries. As a result, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) plans to spend at least $636 million on counter-UAS (C-UAS) research and development and at least $75 million on C-UAS procurement in 2022.
The IDGA Counter-UAS Summit will bring together senior decision makers from the Armed Services, federal agencies, and the DoD to discuss key challenges, requirements, and procurement programs. They will grapple with the question of how UASs can be integrated into the National Airspace System (NAS), what are the latest legal UAS updates, how can we secure our critical infrastructure, how can we combine UAS and OSINT, and more.
