Tavcom Responds to Airport Drone Chaos with New Detection Course Dates throughout 2019

16 May 2019

Tavcom Training, part of the Linx International Group has responded to requests from the security industry, for expert training in order to be better prepared for and mitigate against the threat of Unmanned Aerial Systems (better known as drones). Dates for the two-day Drone Detection classroom-based course will take place throughout 2019 and early 2020.

In late December, the UK was alerted to the impact of a drone attack, when suspected sightings resulted in 1,000 flights from Gatwick Airport being cancelled. Then, weeks later Heathrow also suffered a minor drone-related disruption. The financial and logistical impact on the airport, airlines and travellers (approx. 140,000 in the case of the Gatwick incident) was immense, with current reportsputting the cost to the aviation industry at between £50 – £70 million.

“The responses to the airport drone attacks were played out in the spotlight, with much public debate regarding the seeming lack of a pre-defined plan of action to prevent or contain such an incident.” explains the Sales and Marketing Director at the Linx International Group, Sarah Hayward-Turton. “Last year we introduced our Drone Detection course and this year we will run it three times to give security professionals expert advice from experts in drone technology, to help mitigate risk and implement countermeasures to thwart unauthorised drone activity.”

The Drone Detection course covers the following key topics:

Understanding Drone technologyCAA RegulationsBattery limitsDrone threatsDrone detection and counter measuresUnderstanding Radio Frequency (RF)Drone mitigationTools available for jamming, radar ballistic and capturePractical demonstrationsThe course will take place on the following dates:

13th – 14th March 20198th – 9th May 20195th – 6th November 201911th – 12th February 2020 

The classroom course costs £375+VAT and results in a Tavcom Certificate. For more information and to register for the course visit: https://www.tavcom.com/training-courses/cctv/drone-detection/
