A drone breached energy infrastructure with the potential to cause broad power outages.

In July 2020, an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), or drone, crashed near a Pennsylvania power substation. Officials concluded that its likely purpose was to damage or disrupt the electrical equipment. This drone attack is the first known case of a UAV being used in the United States to specifically target energy infrastructure, and it amplifies the need for drone detection security solutions. 

Although the attack was unsuccessful and no damage was done, it raises physical security concerns for critical infrastructure facilities, and federal law enforcement is encouraging these facilities to incorporate drone detection solutions into their security plans.
