The Defense Department has released a set of guidelines for U.S. military services and installations to address “unauthorized” activity of civilian unmanned aircraft systems near base facilities, DoD News reported Monday.
Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, told reporters Monday the new guidance details how DoD should coordinate with local communities on UAS restrictions.
He added the guidance allows department personnel to stop unauthorized drone flight over and near military installations by tracking, disabling or destroying UAS platforms.
DoD also collaborated with the Federal Aviation Administration and interagency partners to establish a classified policy on how to mitigate drone threats.
Davis said the policy was sent to military services and installations in July.
