Counter-Unmanned Aerial System (C-UAS) in Aerospace and Defense – Thematic Research

The use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) has gathered pace in recent years, with most states having access to some form of UAV platform. As new technologies such as AI and drone swarms mature, UAVs have the potential to revolutionize modern warfare. To counter this emerging threat, investment in cutting edge C-UAS is essential.

The commercialization of drones is a key driver in the C-UAS market, with technological advances lowering the costs of acquiring drones, thereby increasing access. This has led to wider commercial and governmental proliferation, which itself necessitates the development and procurement of C-UAS systems in a variety of defense, commercial, and law enforcement roles.

Scope

Demand for C-UAS-related products will be driven by their expanding capabilities in both defense and commercial settings, and the revolutionary potential of drone swarm technology

There will be a significant spending push in drone-related technologies, and this will precipitate investment in corresponding C-UAS capabilities.
