Past event: Counter UAS Homeland Security USA 2024 Conference

Protecting the Homeland - Countering UAS Threats Through Technological Superiority and Industry Collaboration

We are delighted to announce the return of the Counter UAS Homeland Security USA Conference to Arlington, VA on February 7-8, 2024.

With the growing proliferation and use of small drones and UAS technology in daily life, and the safety and privacy concerns resulting from this, the Biden Administration announced the first Domestic Counter-Unmanned Aircraft Systems National Action Plan in April 2022. This Government approach aims to expand the protections currently in place against the criminal use of drones, to ensure consistent safeguarding of the airspace, communications spectrums, individual privacy, civil liberties, and civil rights.

Counter UAS Homeland Security 2024 will showcase the very latest technology in the market to ensure that civilians, domestic infrastructure, borders and all aspects of homeland security are protected from the criminal use of drones.
