The rapid proliferation of commercial and state of the art drone technology has impacted the character of armed violence be it terrorist, insurgent, or military forces. 

What counter-drone strategies have been adopted to increase force protection, deny adversary surveillance, and attack through the employment of drones?  How and to what degree did the use of drones by the adversary impact existing partner, coalition, and U.S. forces operating models? What old or newly adopted tactics, techniques, and procedures emerged to successfully confront adversary use of drones? How specifically did the use of high-technology drones during the recent conflict in the Karabakh region impact intelligence, fires, command and control (C2), and conduct of operations? What if any counter strategies emerged to mitigate the impact from the use of drones?
