UK MoD Command Paper omits C-UAS strategy

Integrated review fails to mention the UK strategy to counter unmanned aerial systems (UAS).

Even though the growing use of UAVs has pushed many countries to review their C-UAS strategies,  the UK MoD Command Paper, which outlines the government strategy for a 'Global Britain in a competitive age', does not explicitly mention investment or procurement programmes for such countermeasures. 

Some industry insiders argue that this omission is a sign of the UK failing to set the right spending priorities; others believe that the absence of mentioning C-UAS does not mean that the UK is not pursuing efforts in this sphere.

In this video, Shephard talks to Rob Balloch, Senior VP Sales at UK company MARSS, and Ilker Aktasoglu, Senior Air Analyst at Shephard Defence Insight, to gather expert opinion on this matter.
