Global Stratospheric UAV Payloads Technology and Market Forecast to 2025

Global Stratospheric UAV Payloads Technology and Market Forecast to 2025

  • May 2017
  • 147 pages
  • ID: 5088425


Table of Contents

This insightful forecast details the huge markets that will develop around payloads flying in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles that remain on station above the Jet Stream for months or even years at a time. With that endurance or persistence, such payloads will have satellite-like capabilities but without satellite-like costs or orbital limitations.  They’re sometimes called ‘pseudosats’ for that reason.

Our lead analyst is a very experienced military and commercial jet pilot who also has several US aviation patents.  That expertise shows in this report’s detailed explanations of both established solar aircraft and emerging stratospheric airship technologies.

Written with two scenarios covering both today’s restricted airspace and tomorrow’s easier access to the airspace over the most lucrative commercial markets, this forecast allows readers to watch current events and see how the markets will react to either future.  It truly covers all the bases.
