A Market Info Group report forecasts there will be a $3.5-billion global market for small unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) during the next nine years for border security applications.
The report says the use of UASs for border security missions around the world will expand rapidly as nations apply lessons from NATO UAS operations to their border and national security needs. This expansion, which began with the United States, Brazil and Israel, will create new markets and new business opportunities.
This is particularly true for integrated capabilities guided by an operating concept and turnkey packages that include equipment, training, operations and maintenance. Small nations are discovering this technology and smaller UAS types especially will benefit in these new markets, where the established players have less influence and the more complex UASs have less relevance.
