Presentation: Drones, the threat from above
The final presentation of E3S came courtesy of Martin Lanni, the CEO of anti-drone specialist Quantum Aviation.
He warned that number of drones worldwide is “increasing exponentially”, meaning venues have to “get out of a 2D mindset and into 3D, moving beyond the perimeter fence: the threat is coming from above now”. All risk assessments should now consider the possibility of a drone attack, he added.
“The threat is real and it’s increasing,” he concluded. The solution? Engage with experts, the police, your local aviation authority and your country’s communications regulator: “don’t underestimate the power of education”.
