Robotics Data, a robotics analytics and consultant firm, has announced the release of a report providing details on the counter-drone systems market. Also known as counter-unmanned aircraft systems (C-UAS), the market includes equipment and software that allows organisations and governments to detect drones that may be threatening their airspace or facilities.

While most organisations cannot legally take down an unauthorised drone, many of the companies listed in Robotics Data’s ten-page report offer different methods of detecting the drones. Because of the increase in the number of global incidents caused by unauthorised drones around the world, organisations increasingly need to understand which companies can provide gear to counter the threat.

“The counter-drone market is quickly maturing as companies figure out the best way to detect drones that may pose a threat to their facilities,” says Keith Shaw, General Partner at Robotics Data and co-author of the report. “While many companies may wish to bring the drones down as well, only some federal agencies are allowed to do so at the moment. However, should that change, companies in our report will be ready to offer additional systems to help track the drones and assist law enforcement.”

The report is currently on sale for US$199 through the end of December. The report can be purchased by visiting the Robotics Data website at Additional reports from Robotics Data include coverage of marine and maritime robotics, UV-C disinfection robots and automated ground vehicles (AGVs). Additional reports are coming soon and the company also creates custom market reports for interested companies.
