Hoeven Urges Incorporating Private Sector Solutions for Counter-UAS Tech
As UAS develops, we want to protect against misuse of the technology. DHS is working to develop technology to counter potential UAS threats and I urged DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to incorporate private sector solutions. Our conversation follows the efforts by me and some of my Senate colleagues to introduce a bill to empower DHS to develop counter-UAS technology as well as a commitment Secretary Nielsen made to me last week to leverage the private sector for solutions to protect against UAS threats. We’re already making advancements in this type of technology in North Dakota which is why I’m working with Secretary Nielsen to nail down a time for her to visit Grand Forks this summer.
