The latest US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) aerospace forecast predicts that there will be between 2.75 and 4.47 million drones operating in the US by 2021. The same forecast expects between 238,000 and 1.6 million commercial drones operating in the US by 2021. This means that there could be over 6 million small unmanned aerial systems (SUAS) throughout the US by 2021 that could be used to carry small payloads or video to any area or structure desired. In addition, it is estimated that the global number of small drones sold will be 4 times that of US numbers. Therefore, over 20 million flying machines could be potentially used for nefarious purposes including terrorist attacks, industrial espionage, and illegal surveillance.
In response to the increasing threats, dozens of commercial companies have adapted existing technologies, or developed new technologies, to detect small drones and alert operators of their presence. In just a few short years, the commercial C-UAS market has exploded from a handful of participants to over 50. Many companies are still pre-revenue, but market entry barriers are relatively low and competition will be fierce over the next 5 years as demand for commercial C-UAS grows rapidly. This research service lists commercial C-UAS and their products that will be competing for a portion of a market, which will quickly transition from a nascent market to a growth market.
This research service includes information about commercial C-UAS original equipment manufacturers, their product or products, as well as product capabilities. Product information is presented in tables as well as text.
Competitive Information Includes:
-Short description of the C-UAS product
-Capabilities of C-UAS with regard to detection sensors, capabilities, and whether it can offer target mitigation
