The pace of change within the field of Unmanned Aerial Systems is simply staggering. From relative obscurity in the 1990’s, there are now over 260 UAV variants flying or in development from over 50 countries. Whole new classes of aircraft have emerged: SUAS, TUAS, MALE, HALE, LEMV and UCAS, and capabilities stretch to 7 days airborne, 70,000+ feet and 3,000+ lbs of weapons. Global investment is estimated at US $6 Billion this year, rising to US $55 Billion by 2020.
