SAE Media Group is delighted to announce the 2nd annual Counter UAS Homeland Security Europe Conference taking place on 23-24 September 2024, in London, UK.

With the prevalent threat of UAS activity over critical infrastructure (CI) and locations, their use in urban warfare scenarios and the need for adaption of C-UAS technology to remain relevant over time, it is important to bring together the C-UAS and Homeland Security communities to discuss how best to adapt to protect the European homeland from UAS threats and threat actors.

Drawing on knowledge gained from leading Homeland Security experts from key UK, European and International security organisations, governments, military, police and industry, this conference will showcase the very latest technology in the market to ensure that civilians, domestic infrastructure, borders and all aspects of homeland security are protected from the criminal use of drones.

Counter UAS Homeland Security Europe 2024 will facilitate fruitful discussions on C-UAS priorities, challenges and solutions in its entirety, offering a truly holistic agenda with presentations seeking to assist in countering the UAS threat to strengthen national security. This conference will be a catalyst to furthering these internationally important topics, promoting dedicated discussions, networking and passing knowledge to enhance the approach, analysis, and solutions to address nefarious UAS activity in the European Homeland.

  • Hear the latest C-UAS updates from UK, European and International Senior Leadership and Programme Managers
  • Engage and network with senior programme leaders and solution providers developing and integrating cutting-edge C-UAS technologies
  • A varied and specific range of topics including a unique emphasis on C-UAS strategies to protect critical infrastructure and strengthen national security
  • Meet industry solution providers to discover how to leverage their C-UAS platforms

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.


There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.


Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SAE Media Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.


Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.
