The use of small drones has proliferated over recent years, whilst regulatory control over their use has lagged. This has led to a need for organizations responsible for the control of sensitive and high risk areas to monitor and where necessary, intervene in the entrance of drones in these airspaces.

Drones can collide with people and aircraft which could result in a crash

On top of these specific risks, it is important to note that:

Scope of control

Drones are flown remotely from up to several kilometers away

Affordable price

Light drones are very affordable (entry price around $200)

Small size

Light drones are naturally stealth (with movement signatures similar to birds) and very agile

Proliferation

The number of drones in circulation is skyrocketing (roughly 20 drones per aircraft in circulation today, and 50 drones per aircraft estimated by 2025)
