Security: The Key to Affordable Unmanned Aircraft Systems

Cost efficiency and affordability will always be key design criteria for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). Much discussion has focused on the use of open systems architectures (OSA) as a means of reducing costs. However, there is another design criterion that impacts costs and affordability even more than open architecture: security.
