The threat to the United States military and the homeland posed by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAS), also known as drones, continues to grow. Russia, China, and Iran are working hard to compete with the West in the development and deployment of military drones. So too are smaller nations as well as non-state actors of various stripes. Over the past several years, the world has seen a marked increase in the number of drone attacks on both military and civilian targets. The scale and sophistication of these attacks has also increased significantly. Drones are now becoming a transformative capability in conflicts large and small. This is placing a premium on the development and deployment of counter-UAS capabilities (C-UAS) for U.S. military forces and to secure critical infrastructure at home. I have written more on this subject here.
