About the Session

In 2018, Congress and President Trump granted DOJ and DHS legal authorities to employ counter-UAS measures to protect certain critical assets against unauthorized drones. As counter-UAS initiatives are coordinated across departments, agencies and programs, this session will address the evolving threat landscape and provide update on the current status and timeline for implementing new counter-UAS authorities.
