NATO and industry test counter-drone technology on C-UAS TIE 23 or Counter-Unmanned Aircraft Systems Technical Interoperability Exercise 2023.
The misuse of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) has created new challenges for airspace security. It represents a significant and growing risk to NATO operations and day-to-day defence activity.
NATO is working with industry to develop capabilities to counter this threat. Exercise C-UAS TIE 23 (Counter-Unmanned Aircraft Systems Technical Interoperability Exercise) brought together civilian and military specialists, as well as over 60 industry participants in order to test counter-drone technologies to make sure different systems could communicate and work together instantly.
This NATO Multimedia footage, filmed at Vredepeel in the Netherlands on 19 September, includes various counter-drone technologies in action, drone flights and interviews with military and civilian specialists.
