A Comprehensive Approach to Countering Unmanned Aircraft Systems

NATO is making significant efforts to react to the criminal and terrorist misuse of commercially available small drones. We fully recognize that these initiatives are imminent and essential, however, we are also convinced that a sole focus on the low, slow, and small end of the C-UAS spectrum covers only a fraction of current unmanned technology and excludes most military applications.

The primary question that this think-piece seeks to explore is whether this challenge is new and unique or, whether it is actually just one of many threats that NATO faces that can be addressed with a little intellectual effort and with existing technology or, novel use of existing technology?
