A trio of British technology companies comprising Blighter Surveillance Systems, Chess Dynamics and Enterprise Control Systems have combined forces to develop a powerful, highly effective and fully integrated AUDS to combat the threat of malicious micro, mini and larger UAVs or drones.
According to ASDReports, with surveillance taking an increasingly important role both on and off the battlefield, a new report forecasts robust spending in the global UAV market to 2023, with the market expanding from US$7.3B in 2013 to US$14.0B by 2023.
According to a new market research report "Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Market (2013-2018)", authored by MarketsandMarkets, the total global UAV market (2013-2018) is expected to reach $8,351.1 million by 2018 with a CAGR of 3.30%.
Boeing and the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) have demonstrated that an operator on the ground, using only a laptop and a military radio, can command an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) "swarm." Despite limited flight training, the operator was able to connect with autonomous UAVs, task them and obtain information without using a ground control station.
