Unmanned vehicle demand driving innovation in surveillance technologies

The rapidly growing demand for unmanned vehicles for surveillance is likewise driving demand for-and innovation in-sophisticated persistent-surveillance sensors. Satellites, unmanned aircraft, unmanned surface vessels, unmanned land vehices, and even tethered aerostats are bringing the latest surveillance sensor technologies to bear. Sensor payloads involve electro-optical sensors, acoustic sensors, motion sensors, and combinations of all the above bring military situational awareness to levels never seen before.


Unmanned vehicles have the potential to enhance surveillance capabilities while reducing operating costs. Several unmanned vehicles as sensor platforms can be operated by one person, and maintenance costs are relatively low. These opportunities mean high demand for new sensor technologies.
