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.
