Despite a military budget that will continue to be unpredictable, DoD unmanned aerial system (UAS) funding through 2019 is forecast to experience a relatively strong 6.9% compound annual growth rate (CAGR). Market growth will vacillate between positive and negative growth years throughout the forecast period with an overall upward trend. Opportunities for growth remain in technology areas such as automation, platform endurance, battery energy densities, interoperability, and secure communications and data storage. To achieve interoperability and optimal life-cycle costs, companies will need to continue developing open systems architectures for new and legacy UAS programs.
