17 June/July 2019  unmanned systems inside AIR UNMANNED AIR SYSTEMS WILL SOON BE A $100 BILLION MARKET. Although the commercial segment is the fastest-growing UAS market, military usage will continue to dominate UAS sales through 2020. The UAS market is growing faster than unmanned ground vehicles, unmanned underwater vehicles or unmanned surface vehicles. LAND THE $2.7 BILLION MARKET FOR UNMANNED GROUND VEHICLES (UGVS) IS NEARLY EQUALLY SPLIT BETWEEN MILITARY AND COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS. Military uses for UGVs include surveillance, reconnaissance and combat support, while commercial Scan Eagle is a Group 2 long endurance (24 hours) UAS from Insitu Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company. It has a wide range of commercial uses. UGVs are used in fi refi ghting, oil & gas, CBRN (chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear defense), and physical security. UGVs are able to move cargo within a warehouse, harvest crops, and patrol manufacturing plants, warehouses and parking lots. WATER COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS OF UNMANNED UNDERWATER VEHICLES REPRESENT 70% OF THE MARKET. The oil and gas industry uses UUVs to map the seafl oor before building subsea infrastructure, and for inspection of pipelines and other underwater structures. Military uses of UUVs include intelligence, reconnaissance, mine countermeasures and submarine warfare. Growth (CAGR 14.07%) can be attributed to increased deep-water off shore oil and gas production activities and maritime security threats. UNMANNED SURFACE VEHICLES (USVS) operate on the water surface and are used for ocean data, scientifi c research, mapping, commercial and maritime security. While commercial applications currently represent 60% of the market, defense applications are growing because autonomous systems off er greater capacity. Military applications for USVs include border patrol, minesweeping, submarine hunting, surveillance and off ensive capabilities.
