This is the second part of our interview with Michael O'Hara, C-UAS Mission Solutions and Strategy Manager for Northrop Grumman.

In the second part of the interview, O’Hara provides more perspective on how the use of directed energy, high-powered lasers, and microwaves can be improved to become more effective in countering the proliferation of small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in warfare.

O’Hara also explains why counter UAS is a subset of broader air defense countermeasures, and gives some insight on the future of counter UAS technology.
