Protecting the Skies: Detect-Track-Destroy

Welcome to the latest event in the Counter UAS Summit Series!

IDGA is proud to announce the launch of the 4th Counter UAS Winter Summit! Over the past three successful years our winter edition of the Counter UAS Series has become the premier event for military and industry professionals who need to learn about the latest challenges faced by military and federal law enforcement agencies and the most important technological developments in the CUAS space.

Last winter we brought together 300+ attendees and speakers from all branches of the military, DHS, DOJ, FAA, FBI, CIA, CUAS industry executives and representatives from twelve foreign militaries. The diversity of our speakers and attendees is our biggest strength, creating a unique opportunity to learn about the policies, strategies and acquisition goals of federal agencies and the military. It also helps the fostering of new relationships and partnerships.

Counter UAS Winter Summit is the optimum platform to find the answers to your biggest challenges.  We provide you with the flexibility to tailor your educational experience from 25+ speaker sessions, niche track sessions and interactive discussion groups that address your challenges and enable your technical objectives. Last year, discussions about protecting the nation’s airports and civil aviation were the most popular areas of focus. This year’s themes range from; securing airports, drone swarms, directed energy weapons, EW systems, S&T challenges and counter terrorism.

We have designed the summit to give our attendees breaks that allow them to recharge, network and check out the latest in CUAS technologies in our exhibit hall. Every year CUAS Winter Summit keeps getting bigger and more diverse and we look forward to welcoming even more key decision makers from DOD, government and foreign militaries this March. If you are a returning attendee, you can anticipate an even better experience this year. If you are a first time attendee, thank you for choosing the Counter UAS Winter Summit and please enjoy the foremost CUAS focused event in the professional calendar!
