About Counter Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Defense System
Counter-unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) defense systems detect and neutralize any potential threats from drones. They find their application in international defense, homeland security, and other similar agencies. A counter-UAV defense system is a combination of UAV detection equipment and UAV neutralization equipment. While UAV detection equipment detects and tracks small aerial objects, UAV neutralization equipment, like network jammers, detects the radio frequencies that are being used to control a UAV and then disconnects the communication between them.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global counter unmanned aerial vehicle defense system market to grow at a CAGR of 10.52% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global counter unmanned aerial vehicle defense system market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers new installations, procurements, and development projects.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Counter Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Defense System Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global counter unmanned aerial vehicle defense system market: Airbus, Blighter Surveillance Systems, Leonardo, SRC, and Thales.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Elbit Systems, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), and Northrop Grumman.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is development of human-portable counter-UAV systems. UAVs are mostly very agile and easily maneuverable across and within a perimeter. In contrast, most counter-UAV defense systems are heavy, ground-based, and fixed units. These counter-UAV systems cannot be carried over distances to follow the movements of a UAV.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing lethal threat posed by UAVs. The growing adoption and deployment of UAVs have created a significant impact on the modern defense mechanism. UAVs can be easily equipped with cameras and sensors for reconnaissance operations and have been in use in the defense sector since quite early stages of their development. Eventually, they have also been armed with explosives for lethal purposes. The lethal use of UAVs gained strength in 2001 when various defense organizations started using them to scout for terrorists.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is rapidly maturing UAV technologies. With the evolution of battlefield technologies, the warfare scenario has undergone a significant transformation. There have been a number of advancements with respect to the range, payload, lethality, accuracy, preventive aids, stealth characteristics, and mobility of the UAV system. On that front, drones are currently projected as the strongest of the future weapons on the modern-day battleground. In addition, vendors are concentrating on the development of stealth UAVs that will be hard to detect by radars, infrared, lasers, or other detection platforms, making them difficult to shoot down or neutralize electronically.
