Seems they're also looking at a possible "inside job" or someone who knows the airport's procedures.

Re: London Gatwick Airport: Drones ground flights [BBC News]

Looks like a little information spun badly. Airport communications are pretty easy to listen into as thousands of enthusiasts already know. Airband is for safety reasons not encrypted. Some of the grounds services are though, and that includes many of the security and confidential ops - they know they can be listened into and over the past few years have gradually been made much more secure. They're trying to shift the blame from them having systems that are prone to disruption from a five hundred quid Argos drone, to a special one that doesn't show up on the new mega expensive radar.

It's quite laughable really. They had plans, but they were clearly poor ones.
