James Privette of the Integrated Services group at Los Alamos National Laboratory describes how LANL is working to counter the risk unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) pose to national security.
Privette will discuss the issue in a Science on Tap conversation at 5:30 p.m., Thursday, May 21, at UnQuarked Wine Room, 145 Central Park Square in downtown Los Alamos. There is ample parking in Central Park Square.
As the use of drones increases in popularity, their threat to the nation’s assets also increases. Privette will discuss how LANL is closely studying these risks and utilizing emerging technologies to help mitigate them.
Science on Tap is a project of the Los Alamos Creative District. Discussions take place every Thursday evening at various locations and feature discussions on science, nature, history and art.
