rect support to destroying military
equipment and structures. Likewise,
some individuals and groups have taken
advantage of the wide-scale availability
of small commercial UAVs for malicious
purposes. The Islamic State of Iraq and
the Levant (ISIS), for example, has weaponized
small commercial drones using
improvised grenades as a lethal payload.
Other individuals and groups have used
small UAVs to overfly sensitive military
and infrastructure facilities, fly in restricted
airspace around airports, and spy on
famous personalities and their neighbors.
Two years ago, an individual even landed
a small UAV carrying a bottle with traces
of radioactive material onto the roof of
the Japanese Prime Minister's office.
Predictably, demand from military,
police, and homeland security agencies
for technical counters to UAVs is growing.
Counter-UAV systems are now a
major marketing thrust at international
arms and homeland security exhibitions.
Options offered encompass a wide variety
of approaches, including: (1) destroying
the UAV, (2) deceiving or evading
on-board sensors, (3) disrupting/jamming
navigation systems and data links,
(4) third-parties taking control of the
UAV, and (5) catch/capture systems. A
few systems combine several of those
approaches. International arms trade
shows now offer the full spectrum of
countermeasures designed to deal with
both large and small UAVs, but with a
heavy emphasis on kinetic approaches
that destroy UAVs. Security exhibitions,
Aerospace & Defense Technology, May 2022
on the other hand, generally concentrate
on non-kinetic/not-destructive counters
targeted at small, low-flying UAVs.
