Emerging Trends and Investment Opportunities in Drone Technologies for Aerospace and Defense - 2023 Thematic Intelligence Report

Dublin, July 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Drones in Aerospace and Defense - Thematic Intelligence" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)-colloquially known as 'drones'-have been a much-used part of advanced militaries' arsenals for many decades. From the RQ-2 Pioneer used in 1991 during Operation Desert Storm, to the MQ-9 Reaper used in current conflicts in Syria, the US, in particular, has led the way in the development and utilization of unmanned capabilities. This has been due in part to the high financial threshold for R&D, and subsequent export controls on US platforms.

However, other producers are beginning to develop viable, affordable platforms, and, subsequently, there will likely be an increased horizontal proliferation of unmanned capabilities. For example, China has developed a range of UAVs such as the Guizhou WZ-7 Soaring Dragon. Recent conflicts in Nagorno-Karabakh and the ongoing war in Ukraine have demonstrated the tactical effectiveness of relatively cheap UAVs such as the TB2 Bayraktar, as well as the potential of militarized COTS drones and loitering munitions.
