Unmanned aerial systems industry is growing exponentially due to their low price and increasing applications. Drones are currently being adopted for their various applications such as inspection of cargo, disaster management, photography, agriculture inspections, emergency situations, and many more. With the increasing usage of drones, the possibility of them being used for malicious purposes is also increasing. This has resulted in the increase in demand for drone detection and neutralizing systems across different end users. Currently, there are around one million drones registered with FAA, and the number is increasing day by day. With a huge number of drones in the air, efficient detection systems can play a great role in alleviating potential risks associated with drone usage.
Counter-drone technology, also known as C-UAS, counter-UAS, or C-UAS technology, refers to a type of device which is used to locate, fix, track, identify, and neutralize unidentified unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The increase in the usage of commercial drones and incidents has resulted in the need for counter UAV technology or anti-drone systems that neutralize the rogue drones. Some of the anti-drone systems use sensors to detect UAVs, identify threats using electro-optical/infrared imagery and RF emissions and neutralize the threat posed by unidentified UAVs.
The growth of counter-UAS market is directly related to the rising concern from the threats pose by drones in civil and wartime environments. The rise in adoption of mini drones in defense has alarmed the battlefield. Major cause of worry is that the mini-UAVs are used by terrorist attacks. Drones are a popular tool that are used for smuggling, and illegal import of goods. Drones coming into the proximity of manned aircraft of airports, have become a common occurrence in major airports in the world, affecting the flights which could otherwise result in accidents.
According to the latest report, titled ‘Global Counter-UAS (Anti-Drone) Market – Analysis and Forecast (2019-2024)’, the global counter-UAS market to grow at a significant CAGR of 16.83% on the basis of value during the forecast period from 2019 to 2024.
