Counter Drone Market: Competitive Landscape and Key Developments
Lockheed Martin Corporation, Thales Group, NORTHROP GRUMMAN, Leonardo SpA and Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd are some of the key players profiled in the counter UAV market study. Additionally, several other key market players have been researched and analyzed to get a comprehensive view of the global Counter UAV market size and its ecosystem.

In 2021, DroneShield announced its combination with Trakka System, designed to better serve the C-UAS, ISR, inspection and UAS markets.

In 2020, Blighter Surveillance System Ltd launched the latest range of market leading radars, the A800 3D drone detection radar for land, air and sea surveillance.

Inquiry before buying:

Kinetic counter-UAV systems are used by military agencies around the world to bring down a drone completely. It uses weight lines or anti-drone nets which are usually launched using compressed air or another UAV. These devices allow the drone to be captured, neutralized or destroyed. Sometimes unknown drones are sent inside military borders to survey the area or to closely monitor the whereabouts of adversaries. In such cases, the destruction of the complete drone provides increased security for military forces. Some great companies offering kinetic counter UAV systems are KWESST Micro Systems Inc. and Zen Technologies Limited. KWESST Micro Systems Inc. offers micro drones for kinetic interdiction of small drones, including swarms, which can be launched by soldiers. It is a fully automated drone that helps in drone identification, tracks, hunts and neutralizes them with kinetic technology. These systems also cover a range of 4 km. In October 2021, the company announced the development of a new counter-UAV system in response to the growing threat of trailing munitions.

Countries are making remarkable progress in their soldier modernization programs, which has subsequently influenced counter-UAV acquisition over the years. Despite the economic downturn facing European countries due to the sudden onset of COVID-19, a few countries, such as Germany and the Netherlands, have allocated large sums to their respective defense forces in 2020. In 2020, the German and Dutch defense forces have also focused on modernizing soldiers, which has enabled domestic and international players in the counter-UAV market to acquire contracts with the defense forces.

Integration of technologies for the development of drone-based anti-drones to help counter the growth of the drone market:
As military and civilian personnel face increasing aerial danger, counter UAV equipment has seen an increase in adoption over the years. Anti-UAV technology is becoming more widespread, from handheld devices to flying counter-drone systems. There are several ways to destroy an unmanned aerial system (UAS), ranging from kinetic effectors to jamming and directed energy. On the other hand, different strategies are required to fulfill distinct responsibilities, and a layered approach is often required to maintain security. The world’s defense forces are rapidly using drones because they can quickly obtain ready-to-use images and reach regions inaccessible to humans. However, drones can pose a threat if not used with caution. It is a system specially designed to track and intercept drones. The technology relies on various techniques for detecting or intercepting drones. Drones are typically detected using radio frequency (RF), electro-optical, and infrared detection and then destroyed using tactics such as RF jamming, GNSS jamming, spoofing, laser, nets, projectiles or combined interdiction elements.

Counter-drone market: technology overview
On the basis of technology, the counter UAV market share is segmented into laser systems, kinetic systems, and electromagnetic systems. Electromagnetic systems accounted for the largest share in the global counter drone market in 2020. When shot down, counter-unmanned aerial system (C-UAS) technologies with electromagnetic pulse (EMP) capability interrupt or even destroy drone radio links and electronic circuits. These devices may include an antenna to direct the EMP in a specific direction as the EMP may fry other electronic equipment nearby. Northrop Grumman uses the Leonidas EMP system from Epirus, Inc. for protection against static and moving drones. Diehl Defense, Epirus, Inc., esc Aerospace are among the few companies offering electromagnetic counter-UAV systems. Some prominent companies offering electromagnetic systems include Harp ArGe, Northrop Grumman and Zen Technologies Limited. Thus, the increase in investment by these companies is further boosting the counter UAV market.
