LONDON. The use of unmanned aerial systems (UASs) has gathered pace in recent years; as new technologies mature -- including AI and drone swarms -- countries will necessarily invest in cutting-edge counter-UAS (C-UAS) systems, according to a new study from GlobalData, "Counter-Unmanned Aerial System (C-UAS) in Aerospace and Defense -- Thematic Research."

A key driver of the C-UAS market, say the researchers, is and will continue to be the commercialization of drones, with technological advances lowering the costs of acquiring them. Easier access to UASs of many types has led to wider commercial and governmental proliferation of UASs, which itself necessitates the development and procurement of C-UAS systems in a variety of defense, commercial, and law-enforcement roles.
