Unauthorized drones and airports do not mix.
Countless stories have appeared in the news over the years regarding drone activity in federal airspace, citing safety concerns for passenger aircraft and disruption of airport operations.
The cost of a drone-based shutdown can be significant, as evidenced by the Gatwick Airport shutdown which, during the 33 hours of suspended airport operations, cost airlines nearly $64.5 million in losses.
As a consequence, airports around the world are rapidly integrating counter-drone technology into their security infrastructure and expanding their drone-related standard operating procedures (SOPs) to ensure they are not the next airport making headlines.
Installing smart airspace security systems is only the first step to prevent shutdowns.
Airport security leaders must then apply insights and intelligence from the airspace security solution to gain the most value from their system and create effective SOPs.
Through our propriety data from airports around the world we’ve outlined the drone landscape for 2022, our predictions on how it is going to impact airspace security, and the critical steps governments, airports and airlines must take to improve airspace security.

Drones are here to stay and rapidly increasing in both their productive and dangerous applications.
Looking forward to 2021, the number of drones flying in the air will only grow.
Dedrone, a 2021 Platinum ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Award Winner for Best Airport/Aviation Security Solution, has released a report on the drone landscape for 2022 with predictions on how it is going to impact airspace security.
From market-driven trends to government-mandated regulations like Remote ID, this report explores how the global airspace security market will continue to advance and meet the needs of security providers to protect people, property, and information.
The report explores how the acceleration of drone usage has affected key industries, offers 11 predictions for 2022 – including insights on market forces and government regulations driving airspace security, and provides guidance on how security providers can manage their airspace activity and prevent disruption to operations in 2021.
Following are a few insights from the new Dedrone proprietary report:
DJI’s market share will continue to erode in consumer and enterprise markets at a faster than expected rate
A U.S. critical infrastructure site (airport or power grid or O&G) will experience a drone-based attack in 2022
Unauthorized drones at prisons is a preventable risk, and 2022 will be a watershed year for the widespread adoption of drone detection technology at prisons
(See how the Kentucky Department of Corrections is getting ahead of drone threats, including contraband delivery and spying, with Dedrone technology. “The presence of a drone and any kind of disturbance resulting from that is a major threat not only to the safety of the staff that works in the facility but also to the offender population that live within the facility,” shares Coleman Morrell, a leader in the Emergency Management team at Kentucky DOC.

The next serious conflict/war in 2022 will be won or lost on drone technology/unmanned aerial supremacy
The FAA will not declare a standard for drone detection or mitigation in 2022
