Episode 1: Autonomous beginnings: UAVs on the battlefield

Autonomous beginnings: UAVs on the battlefield

Unmanned systems are a huge growth area for commercial markets and a common instrument for militaries across the globe, but that was not always the case. This episode covers how unmanned systems first became force multipliers on the battlefield and how they are used now to realize the vision of the multi-domain battlefield, highlighting insights that commercial companies can leverage based on decades of military operations. Although some of the most innovative drone applications may take years to develop, stakeholders—government officials, investors, regulators, members of the UAS industry, and corporate adopters—must understand how the landscape is evolving and begin refining their UAS strategies now if they want to branch beyond their current uses and capture additional value.
