Abstract: Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), in particular Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAV), are currently used in a wide variety of applications, both in the civil, military and safety-critical domain. However, the uncomplicated and widespread availability of such systems for everyone creates new threats. This ranges from threats due to technical malfunction of the MAVs, over inadequately trained MAV pilots to threats caused by people who deliberately use them for illegal operations. The talk will provide a brief introduction to typical threats posed by hostile MAVs, as well as current approaches to detection and protection against hostile MAVs.
