Counter-Unmanned Aircraft System(s) (C-UAS): State of the Art, Challenges and Future Trends

Speaker:  Houbing Song – Daytona Beach, FL, United States
Topic(s):  Security and Privacy


There is an increasing need to fly Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS, commonly known as drones) in the airspace to perform missions of vital importance to national security and defense, emergency management, science, and to enable commercial applications. However, UAS-related threats, such as unauthorized or unsafe UAS operations, have increased dramatically over the past few years. To promote safe, secure and privacy-respecting UAS operations, there is an urgent need for innovative technologies for detecting, tracking, identifying and mitigating UAS. A Counter-UAS (C-UAS) system is defined as a system or device capable of lawfully and safely disabling, disrupting, or seizing control of an unmanned aircraft or unmanned aircraft system. In this lecture, I will provide a comprehensive survey of existing literature in the area of C-UAS, identify the challenges in countering unauthorized or unsafe UAS, and evaluate the trends of detection and mitigation for protecting against UAS-based threats. I will also introduce our unique C-UAS technology that detects and safely neutralizes rogue drones without destroying them or causing them to crash. The objective of this lecture is to present a systematic introduction of C-UAS technologies, thus fostering a research community committed to the safe integration of UAS into the airspace.
