Following the news about the football-sized drone which has been flown 20m from a Heathrow-bound plane, Dik Vos, CEO at SQS commented below how drones pose a very real security threat to society and how laws must be created to protect uncontrolled airspace against hostile drones.
Dik Vos, CEO at SQS:
“The UK government spends millions of pounds a year on security, whether this is to protect sensitive information or the physical security of the general public, but what is being done to stop a potential drone attack? Currently, not a lot.
Drones must be embraced and feared in equal measure. Combined with 3D printing, drones can be easily configured and adapted to support any kinds of use case. Putting it bluntly, these devices are in fact, flying payload systems with the ability to deliver anything (including incendiary devices or grenades) in to uncontrolled airspace.
Drones pose a very real security threat to society and subsequently, I believe 2017 will see the UK government reduce the threat of uncontrolled airspace by refining and developing new laws to protect against hostile drones.”
