With an increasing threat of small UAS/drones becoming the latest choice of non-state actors for ISR, and offensive purposes, our military is now in a race to close the capability gap between low-tech adversaries and establishing a clear counter-UAS doctrine.      Helping closing this gap and charting a new course in UAS/Drone technology is the goal of the Counter UAS Summit taking place August 22-24 in Washington, D.C. As such, we have created a forum for military and industry experts to discuss these priorities and there ultimate solutions in establishing more focused rules of engagement.
