This study examines the small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) ecosystem, specifically that which is enabled by unmanned aerial platforms that have an approximate maximum take-off weight (MTOW) of less than 25 pounds (11.3 kilograms), including fixed wing and single-rotor/multi-rotor vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) platforms, as well as the technologies, services, and applications associated with their use. Both systems for professional and personal use were examined.

The small unmanned aerial systems market is further categorized into five distinct market sectors – each broken out into various vertical markets or applications – based on the general class of purchaser of the base platform/airframe, and, secondarily, their intended use:

  • Military sUAS Market
  • Civil sUAS Market
  • Commercial sUAS Market
  • Prosumer sUAS Market
  • Consumer sUAS Market 

The sUAS market is not defined by, or limited to, the unmanned aerial system platforms and airframes. The totality of the sUAS ecosystem includes other technologies, products, and services that are ancillary to, and often necessary for, the use of small unmanned aerial vehicles (sUAVs), along with the many applications enabled by them. For this market data, the components of the sUAS ecosystem included:

  • Platforms
  • Accessories
  • Associated Services
  • Application Services
