Counter UAS Homeland Security Europe 2024 Conference

September 9-10, 2024 - London, United Kingdom

We are delighted to announce the 2nd annual Counter UAS Homeland Security Europe Conference taking place on 9-10 September 2024, in London, UK.

With the prevalent threat of UAS activity over critical infrastructure (CI) and locations, their use in urban warfare scenarios and the need for adaption of C-UAS technology to remain relevant over time, it is important to bring together the C-UAS and Homeland Security communities to discuss how best to adapt to protect the European homeland from UAS threats and threat actors.

Drawing on knowledge gained from leading Homeland Security experts from key UK, European and International security organisations, governments, military, police and industry, this conference 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.

Counter UAS Homeland Security Europe 2024 will facilitate fruitful discussions on C-UAS priorities, challenges and solutions in its entirety, offering a truly holistic agenda with presentations seeking to assist in countering the UAS threat to strengthen national security.

This conference will be a catalyst to furthering these internationally important topics, promoting dedicated discussions, networking and passing knowledge to enhance the approach, analysis, and solutions to address nefarious UAS activity in the European Homeland.
