Strategies to Harden and Neutralize UAV Using RF DEW by José Lopes Esteves (@lopessecurity) Co-authored by Emmanuel Cottais (@EmmanuelCottais) & Chaouki Kasmi (@EMHacktivity)

This talk focuses on the technical trials and tribulations faced by the authors during the setup and the realization of IEMI susceptibility tests against common off the shelf UAVs. In order to get a fine grain understanding of the effects of IEMI at both physical and logical levels of the drone, a software instrumentation has been performed, implying a privileged access to the system. Some interesting results will also be provided about the effects observed on the target and discussed regarding their criticality.
