Dear Sussex Police,
I had essentially asked this question before, which wasn't answered but the ICO have asked that I ask again before considering a complaint. IC-133006-P9S6
Please can Sussex Police confirm from the Gatwick drone incident the times of the C-UAS deployment this is held on the Operation Trebor debrief document and other documents you hold.
Please confirm the deployment date/times of:
Leonardo Falcon Shield
AUDS (just reply N/A if this wasn't deployed).
Information so far suggest AeroScope was online early afternoon at the latest with the other systems on the evening of the 20th, Leonardo have specifically dated their system deployment of Falcon Shield on the 20th...
It's already in the public domain these systems were used, so it's no longer a matter of national security that the RAF deployed Leonardo Falcon Shield and Metis AeroScope and the DJI dealers who brought AeroScope have confirmed its presence on the 20th.
Please see the following confirmation these systems are in the public domain and not secrets, the manufactures or their dealers or the RAF has acknowledged the presence of systems times, so this request is only for the time of each system being deployed:
