Attacks and attempted attacks on critical infrastructure in the United States, ranging from nuclear power plants to power grids and energy facilities, have ramped up over the
past several years. These attacks have become increasingly complex as perpetrators have started employing uncrewed aircraft systems (UAS) to target these facilities. As these attacks continue, the limited legal authorities for a handful of federal agencies to detect and mitigate rogue UAS remain on track to expire. The current threat posture requires not just a continuation of limited Federal law enforcement agency authorities, but an expansion of such authorities to those in a position to defend our critical infrastructure: local law enforcement and critical infrastructure owners. Read about it here in my lastest White Paper for Sentrycs.
