Western press ponders how best to protect objects from drone attacks

23

The United States is thinking about protecting vulnerable targets from drone attacks without using advanced technology. This topic has become very relevant after a series of unexplained cases of the appearance of unknown drones over various objects in the US Midwest.


The American edition of The Drive reported that the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), subordinate to the US Department of Homeland Security, has published recommendations on how to best protect facilities from drone attacks. The Western press reflects on this issue while evaluating the proposed measures.

Unlike numerous discussions about approaches to combat UAVs, the document does not describe any technologies and methods for suppressing or disabling unmanned aerial vehicles. Instead, the focus is on ways to reduce the risk of drone attacks without the need for specialized equipment.

Some of the strategies cited in the report involve the installation of drone-free zone signs at locations where they are likely to be launched, landed and operated. The authors of the document recommend introducing time restrictions on flights. The report also advises to instruct facility personnel on the topic of drones.

It is also recommended to mask or hide what may become the target of surveillance or drone attacks. The document advises the use of opaque screens, foliage, blinds, protective films and other devices. Also, for the physical protection of objects, it is proposed to use nets and gratings. The authors of the report advise placing vulnerable assets away from the perimeter of the facility.

Investigation of drone incidents in Colorado and Nebraska (where several drones appeared at key military and dual-use infrastructure during the week), conducted by the publication, shows that local authorities and even federal structures react rather coolly to reports of drone activity, because the damage they don't apply. American journalists hope that a major drone attack on US soil will not be necessary for politicians and officials to notice and respond to the rapidly growing threat.

    This is really a PROBLEM !!! which grows like a snowball on the mountainside!
    Countermeasures, of a legislative, technical and defense nature, will have to be carried out by EVERYONE !!!
    This problem will not bypass anyone.

      As a citizen of a NATO country, my answer is: Not at all. My solution is in the answer - go to ... With a similar "very similar fictitious problem" in 1999, I was very surprised by the young French rogues who wandered around the offices and collected money in francs for saving computers from death at midnight 2000.
      Now there is just a new topic for "getting funding - protection from drones in life, in 4 years!" This is indeed the structure of the current moment, except for K19.

        Drones brazenly climb into the private life of citizens ... they shoot intimate life, extract compromising evidence, on occasion are used as a murder weapon, to deliver drugs, prohibited items ... our FSIN encountered them in places for holding convicts, the border guards will probably encounter them about attempts to smuggle through contraband.

        It depends on whose hands this device turns out to be ... of a lawbreaker or a respectable citizen, it brings either harm or benefit.
        In general, the list of use of drones is expanding as far as human imagination allows ... or else it will be.

          Respectable Citizens ™ in this world (laughing: apart from the hobby of model airplanes) will never even google such a device.
          Back in the spring, I have my photos of an elderly aircraft modeller from my garage.
          If there is a fact of using drones, then no Stalin will win the daring Prokhindeev actual!

          Looking in whose hands

          That's right. Control, legal norms are needed.
          Drones are no longer toys for small and large; they are already a serious technique with great capabilities.

          No one cares about your private life. But the mistresses and lovers of Putin, Vekselberg and the rest of the wave ... Moreover, the palaces cannot be hidden. So it's a problem for them

        In the military sphere, everything is clear, everything goes on as usual ... worse / better, they will figure it out.
        The civil sphere ... it's more complicated here. There will be opponents and supporters, but definitely regulatory and control measures are NECESSARY !!! drone, the thing is not safe. The main thing is that everything was done according to the mind, without excesses.

          With our State Duma there will be excesses and stupid decisions.
          I don't expect anything good from the State Duma members.

            Same thing. They want to turn a lot, back, but deeper ... well, they themselves did not choose, this is what we have, they have us. Something like this.
            But, there are things that cannot be let go!

            Yesterday they passed amendments to the law on the police, allowing shooting to kill. Those. now the policeman can completely freely shoot anyone he wants on the street.

              In ours - simply monstrous, outstripping rates. In a few years it will be scary to live here.

              You can go to America if you are scared here. But there you can be shot even faster.

            If they manage to agree, adopt the rules that are binding on manufacturers of such equipment ...
            such as the inability to print copies of "banknotes" on high-end printers ... then it will be easier.
            Of course, not everyone is ready to follow some rules, but this can also be solved as problems arise.

                Electronic control systems, if manufacturers "sew" everything into civilian control schemes.
                There is no better way.

    Dronophobia? Or, a far-fetched problem to restrict certain civil rights, under the guise of concern for the notorious national security of the United States? ?

      It is possible to restrict civil rights in our time for any reason, not only in the United States but also around the world.
      Tightening of the nuts is going on in all countries including our country.

    Only counter-drones can fight drones. Buy fighter drones and sleep well.
