Market by Application: Analysis and Forecast: Over the past decade, the UAV market has witnessed several significant developments such as significant reduction in weight, cost, and size, improved battery life, and a heightened degree of autonomy in its operation. These developments have led to broader adoption of UAVs for a diverse range of applications across commercial and military end users.

The initial adopters of counter-UAS technologies have been defense organizations; the C-UAV systems are now being installed at the critical infrastructure around the world. The tools and techniques used by militaries, defense organizations, and police include GPS spoofing, drone nets, RF jammer guns, among others, in the anti-drone system.

Counter-UAS (Anti-Drone)

The increase in the use of commercial drones and incidents has resulted in the necessity for counter UAV technology or anti-drone systems which neutralize rogue drones. Counter-drone technology, also known as C-UAS, counter-UAS, or C-UAS technology, refers to a type of device used to locate, fix, track, identify, and neutralize unidentified unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

Some of the anti-drone systems use sensors to detect UAVs, identify threats using electro-optical/infrared imagery and RF emissions, and neutralize the threat posed by unidentified UAVs.

Counter-UAVs are earning interest and popularity among several countries. However, in terms of bulk adoption and usage, they are still in an initial stage, and countries need to spend on counter-UAS technology to penetrate through certain areas where the industry has been deficient. Thus, in this section, various counter-UAS programs that countries are spending on and are expected to come up in the future are analyzed.

Counter-UAS (Anti-Drone) Market Overview

The unmanned industry has been rapidly growing owing to significant developments such as considerable reduction in size, weight, and cost, enhanced battery life, and increased degree of autonomy in its operation.

Additionally, drones have been adopted across the globe for various applications such as infrastructure, logistics and transport, insurance, media and entertainment, telecommunication, agriculture, mining, oil and gas, and defense.

Currently, there are about one million drones registered with FAA, and the number is increasing day by day. With a huge number of drones in the air, efficient detection systems can play a great role in alleviating potential risks associated with drone usage.
