UAS launch market to reach $1.2 billion by 2021, Radiant Insights reports

SAN FRANCISCO, 9 July 2015. Increased use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), also called drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), is driving growing demand for launch systems that do not require the use an airfield to get the aircraft airborne, according to the latest report from Radiant Insights in San Francisco.

SAN FRANCISCO, 9 July 2015. Increased use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), also called drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), is driving growing demand for launch systems that do not require the use an airfield to get the aircraft airborne, according to the latest report from Radiant Insights in San Francisco.

"Low-cost, long-endurance autonomous unmanned vehicles represent one aspect of miniature robotic aircraft. Systems integration, communications capability and payload technologies are slated to support market growth going forward,” says Susan Eustis, lead author of the team that prepared the study at Radiant Insights. “Market growth comes because as the defense budgets of the industrialized nations will fund the technology for launchers in order to create good enough surveillance and strike capacity. These capabilities are core in a world dominated by globally integrated enterprises.”

Launchers for UAS are portable devices that support remote placement of ways to launch self-piloted aircraft. These drone UAS aircraft can carry cameras, sensors, communications equipment, or other payloads. UAS are cost-effectively stored and transported creating the need for portable launchers.

Launchers are core to drone implementation. “The variety of launchers is stunning, but the list of market participants is bound to get shorter as some systems prove themselves superior in the field,” according to the report, entitled "Drone Launchers Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2015 to 2021."

“The designs developed by engineering staff are strong, sturdy, and capable of operating in the most severe environmental conditions. Modular designs create the capacity for interchangeable functions on the same launcher. Modular systems support component replacement instead of complete overhaul,” Radiant Insights analysts reveal.

Launchers should be user-friendly. In-the-field serviceability is a necessity because the unmanned systems may be located anywhere. The value of the systems is that they are flexible and easily sent off in the place where there is trouble, where they are needed. In this instance, quick re-configuration is a necessity.

The aim is to design launchers for UAS of any geometric configuration and exit velocity.
