Download the (Program Agenda)
· Barriers to making the use of C-UAS equipment legal for local law enforcement
· Using C-UAS equipment for homeland and civil defense against rogue drone operators
· Creating policy, tactics and equipment to prevent future UAS threats.
This was a three-day event which brought together government, industry and academia to focus on emerging and innovative C-UAS technologies, such as directed energy weapons and EW measures as well as technologies to detect and identify drones in the battlefield.
Cofounder Rob Thomson was chosen as a Technical SME for DHS CIPAC UAS Security Working Group. Rob was invited based on his knowledge of FAA Regulations and Policy as well as military tactics in electronic warfare and counter drone operations. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security established the Critical Infrastructure Partnership Advisory Council (CIPAC) to facilitate interaction between governmental entities and representatives from the community of critical infrastructure owners.

Our coalition now guides our members on how to choose CUAS equipment, our evaluation of a companies equipment, how to employ equipment legally and to stay above the law during use. We have provided companies with solutions for all environments including military, domestic and with our US allies. Contact Us to become a member.
The Department of Homeland Security for UAS, the video contains information on critical infrastructure challenges associated with UAS threats, counter UAS security practices, actions to consider for risk mitigation, and provides messages of facility and organizational preparedness related to UAS incidents.
Unfortunately, developments have also introduced new capabilities for adversaries. During our panel we will explore CUAS emerging issues associated with UAS from a military perspective, including spectrum, safety solutions, and discussing how to mitigate in civil defense vs theater, and to protect our homeland.
The CUAS Coalition is announcing our Coalition Directors & Research Team who have signed on to solve a very complex problem that affects the future of many people in the United States and abroad.
Drones in America have evolved from simple bomb delivery vehicles to a broad spectrum of military and civilian aircraft, and the community has evolved to match.
The C-UAS Coalition was formed in 2017 by Falcon Foundation UAS, advocates for public affairs and public policy the voice of the CUAS technology stakeholders in Washington.
The CUAS Coalition was formed to help industry stakeholders engage government to forward the usage of CUAS technology and policy surrounding the counter drones industry. The global counter drones market is anticipated to reach 1.85 billion dollars by 2024. Part of the problem with this forecast is that drones for civil use is currently illegal in almost all cases the operator of CUAS equipment would be held liable for damage incurred by using the equipment even in some cases of nefarious actors.
The coalition’s purpose is to serve as a thought leader in the CUAS ecosystem to provide its expertise on how CUAS technologies should be regulated and technology developed to combat threats. Members of the Coalition appreciate the need for regulation to be balanced and CUAS technology appropriately used, and as a defensive measure to protect people and assets while still promoting safety and innovation.
