What is the Uas/ugs groups?

  • WeTHINK.  brings together subject matter experts (SME) and stakeholders to identify emerging threats and develop and exchange best practices to protect critical infrastructure against UAS threats through an innovative crowd knowledge based wargame approach.

How do we bring them together?

  • Through regular crowd based online wargames and simulations 

    • In cooperation with our partners at 

      • The Center for Advanced Red Teaming (CART) of the University of Albany

      • University of West England UWE Bristol

      • Texas Tech University

      • University of Piraeus

      • Dronesec 

    • The Red Teams are based on an innovative crowd knowledge approach, bringing together 600 vetted subject matter experts to develop the most probable and most dangerous courses of action for generalised critical infrastructure sites and public venues. 

    • The moderated Blue Teams are composed of real life actors (police, emergency service, critical infrastructure companies, CUAS companies) to develop defensive COAs for specific real life objects.  

    • Courses of actions are tested 

      • Through an online based computer simulation rendering real life critical infrastructure objects. (under development) 

      • Physical simulation events conducted once per year.
