rone warfare has become
a critical component of
modern-day military conflicts.
Militant groups around the
world, including those present in
Gaza and Lebanon in the Middle
East, and in Ukraine, are purchasing
relatively inexpensive drones and
outfitting them with explosives.
These small commercial or " Do-ItYourself "
(DIY) drones can fly long
distances and are used to wage
asymmetrical warfare including deadly
terror attacks on military bases or
troops, tracking of troop formations
and strategic assets, and even the
targeting of top military personnel for
assassination. Conventional militaries
are increasingly relying on drones, too,
to eliminate top terrorists, see over
ridgelines, arrange for more accurate
targeting, and adjust mortar fire.
But while the battlefield is quickly
shifting, defenses against evolving drones
and scenarios have remained surprisingly
static. In fact, many of today's traditional
counter-unmanned aerial systems
(C-UASs) were designed based on military
concepts that made sense a few years
back, but quickly show shortcomings
in the asymmetrical battlefield.
