The Big Problem with Small Drones

Governments around the globe face an urgent and growing need for flexible, tailorable, and affordable solutions to the threats posed by small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS). As one U.S. general testified on Capitol Hill, “Until we are able to develop and field a networked capability to detect and defeat UAS, the advantage will remain with the attacker.” Counter-sUAS systems must be easily integrated into wider air, ground, maritime, and space surveillance systems.

Key Takeaways

  • Exponential growth in small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) is creating new risks for governments.
  • State and non-state actors are increasingly employing military- and consumer-grade sUAS to attack personnel, facilities and critical infrastructure.
  • Governments must employ a multi-layered approach to counter sUAS and keep pace with emerging threats.
