The military unmanned aircraft market is considered a mature market, but a market that is growing in the U.S. and globally thanks to the increases in defense spending worldwide. The U.S. has made cyber and unmanned technology a priority, Mike Blades, Vice President of Research and Consulting for Aerospace, Defense, and Security in the Americas at Frost and Sullivan, tells me in this podcast. He also covers the latest trends from the commercial unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) market and how defense companies play in that market. Blades closes with his outlook for the counter-UAS market, perhaps the fastest growing part of this space due to real and perceived threats.
