Performance Analysis of Possible Terrorists Attacks Using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
POSTER: This paper analyzes technical capabilities of commercially available unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in relation to their potential abuse for terrorist targets. This article also compares options which have UAVs (for example their maximum payload) and the possible consequences that could be caused by application of CBRN agents. For this purpose we chose two CBRNE agents - SOMAN and PETRIT, and we watched their potential effect on the selected area of urban development (we used a simulation program Terex). Results are shown graphically.
