Commercial drones represent a serious security risk to major public events, but also to sensitive infrastructures and facilities such as industrial testing grounds, large industrial plants, critical infrastructure, military and even correctional facilities. Of particular risk is the unauthorized use of micro unmanned air vehicles (MAVs) for espionage, provocation or even criminal and terrorist purposes.

How serious is this threat? What are the current range of detection and mitigation techniques?  
Join us on Thursday, November 16 at 1:00 PM EST when our panel of experts will address the current state of the science in Drone Defense in a FREE web seminar sponsored by Rohde & Schwarz.

The learning objectives of the webinar include:
• Provide awareness and understanding to the possible threats posed by MAV's
• Create awareness around the need for a multi-sensor approach to effectively detect and defeat threats
• Solicit feedback on customer awareness, perception, and priorities when considering these threats

Our panel of experts for this exciting event are Ross Lamm, Co-Founder, Black Sage Technologies; Goetz Mayser, Director C-UAV Detection and Counter Solutions, Rohde & Schwarz, Inc.; and David A. Romero, Managing Partner, Black Sage Technologies.
The webinar moderator will be General Jim Poss, CEO of ISR Ideas, an intelligence, unmanned aerial systems and cyber consulting firm. During the live event, audience members will have the opportunity to pose their own questions to the panel of experts.
