Military drone refers to unmanned aerial vehicles that are specifically used for military purposes such as border surveillance, battle damage management, combat operations, communication, delivery, and anti-terrorism weaponry. The main types of military drones are fixed-wing, rotary-wing, and hybrid. A fixed-wing drone is a plane that doesn’t have a human pilot on board. Fixed-wing UAVs can be commanded remotely by a human or autonomously by onboard systems. The different types of drones include MALE, HALE, TUAV, UCAV, SUAV and involve various technologies such as remotely operated, semi-autonomous, autonomous. It is used in search and rescue, national defense, military exercises, and others.  A recent report from The Business Research Company projected that the global military drones market size will grow from $14.54 billion in 2022 to $15.88 billion in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.2%.

The report said: “Drone swarm technology is growing in popularity in the military drone market due to its cost efficiency and high firepower. Drone swarms are a large group of small drones that coordinate with each other to perform actions such as a survey of enemy territories, search and rescue, and attacks on hostile objects. Drone swarm technology involves the production of several small, cheap drones rather than one large, expensive drone, therefore offering military drone manufacturers and end-users efficiency in terms of cost and time. With the use of advanced swarm technologies, the military and armed forces can effectively carry out lethal drone strikes in multiple places at once… (These) drones can communicate with each other through a main channel using a specific algorithm, which sends messages to all of the drones and assigns each one of them a specific mission to fly to the target.  Increasing government funding for military drones to enhance efficiency in military operations boosts the demand for the production of military drones… the increasing government spending on unmanned drones is driving the military drone market.”
