Kinetic counter UAV systems are used by military bodies across the globe to completely take down a drone. It utilizes anti-drone weight lines or nets that are generally launched with the help of compressed air, or another UAV. These devices help capture the drone, neutralize it, or destroy. At times, unknown drones are sent within military boundaries to study the area or to keep a close eye on the opponents' whereabouts. In such cases, destroying the complete drone ensures enhanced safety to the military forces. Some major companies offering kinetic counter UAV systems are KWESST Micro Systems Inc. and Zen Technologies Limited. KWESST Micro Systems Inc. offers micro-drone for kinetic interdiction of small drones, including swarms, that can be launched by soldiers. It is a fully automated drone that helps in the identification of drones, tracks, hunts and neutralizes them with kinetic technology. These systems also cover a range of 4 km. In October 2021, the company announced the development of a new counter UAV system in response to the rapidly increasing threat of loitering munitions.

The countries are making remarkable progress in their soldier modernization programs, which subsequently influenced the procurement of the counter UAV over the years. Despite the economic downfall faced by European nations owing to the sudden outbreak of COVID-19, a few countries—such as Germany and the Netherlands—allocated significant amounts to their respective defense forces in 2020. In 2020, the German and Dutch defense forces also emphasized soldier modernization, which enabled the domestic and international counter UAV market players to acquire contracts from both the defense forces.

Integration of Technologies for Development of UAV-based Anti-Drone to Contribute to Counter UAV Market Growth:
As both military and civilian personnel face an increasing aerial danger, counter UAV equipment has experienced a rise in adoption over the years. Counter-UAV technology is becoming more pervasive, from handheld devices to a flying counter-drone system. There are several ways to destroy an unmanned aerial system (UAS), ranging from kinetic effectors to jamming and directed energy. On the other hand, different strategies are required to fill distinct responsibilities, and a tiered approach is frequently needed to maintain security. Global defense forces are rapidly employing drones because they can swiftly obtain ready-to-use imagery and reach regions that humans cannot. However, drones can pose a menace if not operated with caution. It is a system that is specifically designed to track and intercept drones. The technology relies on various techniques for detecting or intercepting drones. Drones are typically detected using radio frequency (RF), electro-optical, and infrared detection, and subsequently destroyed using tactics such as RF jamming, GNSS jamming, spoofing, laser, nets, projectiles, or combined interdiction elements.

Counter UAV Market: Technology Overview
Based on technology, the counter UAV market share is segmented into laser systems, kinetic systems, and electromagnetic systems. The electromagnetic systems accounted for the largest share in 2020 in the global counter UAV market. When shot, counter-unmanned aerial system (C-UAS) technologies with electromagnetic pulse (EMP) capability interrupt or even destroy radio links and electronic circuits in drones. These devices may include an antenna to direct the EMP in a specific direction because the EMP can fry other electronic equipment in the vicinity. Northrop Grumman uses the Leonidas EMP system from Epirus, Inc. for both static and mobile counter-drone protection. Diehl Defence, Epirus, Inc., esc Aerospace are among a few companies offering electromagnetic counter UAV systems. Some significant companies offering electromagnetic systems include Harp ArGe, Northrop Grumman, and Zen Technologies Limited. Thus, the rising investment by these companies is further driving the counter UAV market.
