Drones corner

I attended the EUROCONTROL high level workshop on drones detection last week. The presentations are available via the link above, including a feedback from Gatwick Airport on the incident which affected them. The biggest take aways are that there will be no one-size-fits-all solution and that the European Commission, EUROCONTROL, airports and ANSPs work at different paces. Some talk about producing a common concept of operation and discuss the scope while other are already purchasing drone detection systems. One key point of the scope definition is to define if it is ANSP's or airport's role to care for attacks classified as terrorism, using drones not sending any signal and with really bad indentions. Should civil activities be limited to incidents caused by ignorant or imprudent drone operators or also those with bad intentions? The means required are different and have different costs too.
