The Emerging Needs, Opportunities + Challenges Of UAS... An Upcoming ASDEvents Symposium

[SatNews] Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UASs) and Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) have seen a golden age in the last decade, growing to an annual budget of $7 billion.

Most of this growth has been through the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but with the drawing down of troops, what's next? Analysts still predict growth in this industry, estimating a total increase to just over $89 billion in the next decade. Not only is the military expected to sustain its backing of UAS technology, but the civil and commercial markets are poised to open up to a host of opportunities for the industry.

"In the next 20-30 years, these things (RPAs) are going to explode."—General Mark A. Welsh, III, Air Force Chief of Staff
