The demand for military drones is expected to grow during the forecasted period due to an increase in the use of electronics. Also, advancements in artificial intelligence and machine learning, and their integration with drone systems allow drone manufacturers to glorify their portfolios. Their state-of-the-art products enable real-time, data-driven decision-making by enabling high-speed data capture and processing.
In the military sector, drones are used in applications such as intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR); electronic warfare; coordination and transportation; and research and surveying. Drones can be remotely operated, and equipped with various sensors and weapons, which has added to their popularity in military applications. Moreover, their remote operations lead to the increased safety of personnel operating them; they are not exposed to risks associated with traditional warfare. In addition, the use of drones reduces the need for ground troops, which can significantly reduce the number of casualties and related expenses.
