New: Countering Unmanned Aerial System Threats

The United States and Germany will announce a new Initiative to Counter Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) Threats. The Initiative will raise awareness of how terrorists can use UAS to threaten individuals and civilian targets and how countries can counter this specific threat. Through a series of region-specific workshops, the Initiative will promote discussion on national action plans, approaches, and efforts to counter the misuse of UAS. The Initiative will develop a set of internationally recognized, non-binding good practices that can serve as the basis for international engagement, assistance, and training to understand how international stakeholders can counter terrorist use of UAS.
