NEW YORK, Jan. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Emerging Applications for Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Across Global Government and Commercial Sectors

UAS Platforms are Flexible and Hold Great Potential

The significant potential and benefits of UAS have led to increasing implementation since the mid-1980s. Through the years, these platforms have proven successful on numerous missions, leading to growing popularity. UAS now has a significant role for numerous military units worldwide. A decrease in military expenditure has, however, nudged UAS manufacturers to look towards commercial markets. This market insight covers emerging applications for unmanned aerial systems globally.

Executive Summary

•Regulatory processes restrain commercial growth in all but a select few countries.
•Next Generation (NextGen) Air Traffic Management systems such as automatic dependent surveillance broadcast (ADS-B) are critical pieces of the puzzle to integrate UAS into the National Airspace (NAS).
•Technological developments are mission enablers in the same way that mission requirements drive technological changes. Technological milestones have yet to be met to enable the safe integration of UAS into non-segregated airspace.
•Green technologies and technologies giving enhanced power and endurance, coupled with higher payload capacities, will further encourage adoption of UAS.
•Improved computing power and higher speed data links will allow for more sophisticated control and management techniques.
•Modularity of systems and standardisation of middleware will allow for flexibility and configurability of systems.
•Law enforcement and first responders lead the pack, with cautious uptake for agriculture and forestry.
•Costs and inconsistent demand limit commercial buy-in, though this is expected to change gradually as UAS continue to become more efficient and less costly.
•In other words, more capability at less cost encourages more market growth.

Introduction

The significant potential and benefits of UAS have led to increasing implementation since the mid-1980s. Through the years, these platforms have proven successful on numerous missions, leading to growing popularity.
UAS now has a significant role for numerous military units worldwide. A decrease in military expenditure has, however, nudged UAS manufacturers to look towards commercial markets.
The shift from military implementation has and will be gradual. Government and law enforcement have begun the shift, pressuring regulatory bodies to finalise interim legislation. This will facilitate the commercialisation of the UAS and application thereof to fields such as precision agriculture and journalism.

Scope of Study

End users
•Parapublic (Government and first responders)
•Commercial (Industry, commercial operators, research, private)

Technology
•Avionics
•Vehicle Mission Systems

Regulations
•Pilot/crew
•Equipage
•CONOPS

Safety Risks and Other Concerns

CONOPS – mission sets, handover procedures
Mid-air collision with another UAS or manned aircraft or crashes involving fatalities on the ground
Legal liability/accountability issue:
•Pilot in command under legal obligation for safe operations
•Insurance costs are currently high
Pilot error versus programmer error with growing autonomy
•May be combated by high software standards/redundancy
Crew and pilot training
Loss of communication/guidance and security of communications
Privacy concerns
Data rights – who owns the right to use and distribute this data

Manufacturers are embracing the Industrial Internet the same way consumers are leveraging Fitbits – to improve overall health and wellness. Both can provide consistent measurement, visibility, and suggest performance improvements customized to help reach goals. Fitbit users can view real-time data and make adjustments to increase their activity. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mark Bernardo Professional Services Leader, Americas, at GE Digital, will discuss how leveraging the Industrial Interne...
There is an ever-growing explosion of new devices that are connected to the Internet using “cloud” solutions. This rapid growth is creating a massive new demand for efficient access to data. And it’s not just about connecting to that data anymore. This new demand is bringing new issues and challenges and it is important for companies to scale for the coming growth. And with that scaling comes the need for greater security, gathering and data analysis, storage, connectivity and, of course, the...
The IoTs will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected.
