The Jordanian Armed Forces, together with Defense IQ, will hold a conference focusing on technologies and methods to deal with the drone threat, the IT Briefing website reported.
"The requirement to develop a countering drone strategy in the Middle East has become extremely pressing over the last few years. Drone attacks in the region have become a daily occurrence, threatening the safety of armed forces personnel and citizens alike. The increasing frequency of these attacks and the technological advancement of the vehicles being used is truly a cause for concern," the report says.
"Therefore, we are holding the inaugural Countering Drones Middle East event, 8-9 May 2018, hosted by the Jordanian Armed Forces. This will be the platform for collaborative discussions between government and industry, whilst also providing the opportunity to gain an insight into current and future strategies to effectively detect drone threats."
