Global Counter UAS Technologies Market 2015

Reading time ( words)

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Counter UAS Technologies" report to their offering.

In the past decade, the technology for building and operating unmanned aerial systems (UASs) - also commonly referred to as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), remotely piloted aircraft (RPA), or drones - has become relatively inexpensive and very accessible. This has caused a rapid proliferation in use. This rapid proliferation is occurring military, civil, commercial, and recreational applications, and has generated a need for countermeasures to detect and negate UASs with malicious intentions through physical or non-physical means, depending on the scenario.

Key Finding:

  • Counter unmanned aerial system (C-UAS) technologies are in a relatively early stage of development; however, investment and interest in creating effective drone detection and negation systems is rapidly increasing for both military and commercial applications.
  • Military C-UAS systems are predominantly comprised of current radars and sensor product offerings that are adapted to detect and track small, fast, low flying aircraft while being able to distinguish them from other targets, such as birds.
  • Systems for detecting and negating small, commercial drones are being developed globally, but a few companies, like DroneShield, have a head start.
  • Non-military drone detection/negation systems that utilize only one detection method (e.g., acoustic sensors) will lose out to more robust systems that integrate several detection types to increase detection range and reliability.
  • Swarming technologies will be used both as an offensive and defensive measure in unmanned aerial system (UAS) operations.
  • Many attempts to regulate commercial drone use have been ad hoc and reactive rather than proactive because the technology has advanced quicker than the bureaucracies' abilities to develop proper regulatory frameworks.

How to Dismantle a Nuclear Bomb

10/01/2019 | Peter Dizikes, MIT News Office
How do weapons inspectors verify that a nuclear bomb has been dismantled? An unsettling answer is: They don’t, for the most part. When countries sign arms reduction pacts, they do not typically grant inspectors complete access to their nuclear technologies, for fear of giving away military secrets.
