53 April/May 2018 unmanned systems inside ENGINEERING. PRACTICE. POLICY. programs. You could see a Chinese UAV and say 'Aha, that's the equiva- lent of the Q7' or 'that's the equivalent of some Israeli program and that's the equivalent of a Predator.' Now they have multiple programs, from multiple firms, competing in practically all of the niches." The changes in the Chinese program are not widely known, Zaloga suggest- ed, because the new equipment is not necessarily shown at the more popular air shows. "I went over to Zhuhai over to the big Chinese air show in 2016 (Airshow China), and I was shocked at the rapid development of UAS in China. The number of systems out there is as- tonishing—and the growing sophistica- tion of the systems." Once people are conv inced the Chinese products are worth buying, it will give them entrée into other op- portunities," Zaloga said. "The Chinese rightly think this gives them an oppor- tunity to break into markets that other- wise they would never had any chance to break into."
