About us

Welcome to the Counter UAS Network – an independent information resource proudly serving defence, law enforcement and security professionals worldwide.

We aim to identify new technologies, strategies, and tactics for countering threat from hostile unmanned aerial systems. We strive to deliver an up-to-date, first-hand expert knowledge, and facilitate information sharing between stakeholders, academia and the industry through the regular news updates, insights and in-depth analysis available to the Counter UAS Network subscribers.

The threat
As technology advances and armed forces around the world continue to leverage the advantages of unmanned aerial systems in combat and counter terrorism and insurgency operations, hostile nations, terrorist organisations, and criminals are racing to develop and procure low-cost UASs themselves. The size and composite materials used in UAS production make them inherently difficult to detects and defeat with traditional force protection measures and short-range air defence (SHORAD) systems. Hostile UAS operations, however, are not limited to the battlefield and asymmetric, low intensity conflict scenarios; unmanned aerial systems have already been used to disrupt people daily routines at home and violate traditional security measures surrounding airports, nuclear facilities, sporting venues, etc. We must assume localities of vital interest are being watched and could be targeted at any time.
