Workshop event in Nivelles, 25 - 26 June, organised by BCDC (Belgian Civil Drone Council) and ID2MOVE.

C-UAV: From the Problems to the Solutions - invitation We have the pleasure to invite interested parties* (academic, private and public sector) to the workshop.

Counter-UAV technology , also known as counter-UAS, C-UAS, or counter-drone technology, refers to systems that are used to detect and/or neutralize unmanned aircraft. As concerns grow around the potential security threats drones may create to both civilian and military interests, a new market for counter-drone technology is rapidly emerging and brings a wide range of practical, legal, and policy challenges in all operating environments.

These two days of workshop will offer the opportunity to participate to keynotes, short talks and open debates, networking and demonstrations with main Belgian companies and research groups active in C-UAV, discover innovative research and start-up projects.

The Belgian Civil Drone Council

Belgian Civil drone council The Belgian Civil Drone Council is an advisory body dedicated to the development and promotion of the Belgian professional drone sector while ensuring a high level of safety. It brings together public entities (Belgian Civil Aviation Authority, Skeyes, Defense, federal and local police, FPS Economy, SPW…),private organizations (Belgian Drone Federation, EUKA, Skywin, Agoria…) as well as drone manufacturers, drone operators and remote pilots to discuss on technological, operational and regulatory topics. Depending on the outcome of those discussions, the BCDC can issue recommendations or proposals to public authorities or directly to the drone sector. 


ID2MOve ID2Move is a collaborative transdisciplinary project located in Nivelles and initiated by InBW (Intercommunale Brabant Wallon) and ULB (Université Libre de Bruxelles). The project aims at creating a Centre of Excellence for Innovative projects from Startups/ Spinoff/Small and Large Companies in the field of Autonomous Systems with the most diversified test zone in Europe. Launched in mid-2019, the ambition is to become a reference in the Walloon Region and beyond. The project will focus on payload with added-value applications, while keeping a strong interest in the carrier (UAV, Airships, Autonomous Cars UGV, Underwater Drones USV, etc.) and the regulatory and societal impacts.
