​​On 28-30 September 2021, the RegulAIR project team attended the first-ever international drone incursion exercise at a fully operational airport. Organized by INTERPOL, the Norwegian Police, Avinor, and UAS Norway, the event gathered C-UAS technology vendors, police officers, officials from government agencies, and experts from around the world, with the aim of testing C-UAS technology, and of discussing the challenges and opportunities for detecting, tracking, and intercepting unmanned aircrafts. The exercise was a culmination of eighteen months of planning and served not only as an opportunity to test cutting-edge technology in an operational setting, but also as a forum for discussions on practical, societal, and legal aspects of the threat posed by non-cooperative drones.

​PRIO has received funding from the European Commission to contribute to a fact-finding study preparing a Drone Strategy 2.0. The PRIO team, composed by Bruno Oliveira Martins and Nora Stai, will contribute to different components of the study, in particular by providing a Norwegian case study on technology testing and development in the field of law enforcement. Through interviews, field research and literature reviews, PRIO will assess the opportunities for, and barriers to, drone use in this sector, in addition to outlining its current and potential impact on civil-military relations and technological development.
