Ready for Retirement, Can Predator Find New Home?

Ready for Retirement, Can Predator Find New Home?

“The problem both CBP and the Coast Guard have is that they both have very tight budgets,” said Phil Finnegan, director of corporate analysis for the Teal Group. He notes that CBP already flies MQ-9s along the border and may not want to “downgrade” its small fleet of unmanned systems. As is, CBP has come under fire from watchdog groups for the cost of its MQ-9 program. The Coast Guard might be a better bet, Finnegan said. The service has sought unmanned capability for years, including a failed attempt at developing its own specialized platform known as the Eagle Eye, and has a standing interest in land-based UAVs. Taking the older Predators from the Air Force may be a cheap option.

Selling real estate from the ground up

Selling real estate from the ground up

While it’s rare to find brokers who fly planes to move Long Island real estate, the use of drones is on the rise. Global sales of unmanned aircraft, including those used by the military, are expected to total $89 billion in the next 10 years, making it one of the fastest growing aviation industry segments, according to Fairfax, Virginia-based consultant Teal Group.

U.S. Lags as Commercial Drones Take Off Around Globe

U.S. Lags as Commercial Drones Take Off Around Globe

Worldwide sales of military and civilian drones will reach an estimated $89 billion over the next decade, according to the Teal Group, an aerospace research company in Fairfax, Va. The FAA estimates as many as 7,500 small commercial drones will be in use by 2018, assuming the necessary regulations are in place.

Facebook se une a la fabricación de drones, que generará 66.000 millones en 10 años

Según afirman desde Teal Group, casa de análisis dedicada al sector aerospacial y de defensa, “el gasto en este sector se verá duplicado a lo largo de la próxima década, pasando de los 5.200 millones de dólares anuales que se destinan en la actualidad a 11.600 millones”. De hecho, se espera que en el cómputo global de los siguientes diez ejercicios se destinen cerca de 89.000 millones de dólares (66.000 millones de euros) a este ámbito. “El mercado de drones se está convirtiendo en un mercado cada vez más internacional a medida que crece”, afirmaba Philip Finnegan de Teal Group. Y es que, “este sector ofrece un servicio rápido, eficaz y amigable que ayuda a las empresas que se dediquen a la seguridad” señalan desde Siemens.

Drone Purchases Drive Competition for New Radars

Drone Purchases Drive Competition for New Radars

One analyst said Northrop would do well to focus on maritime capability. “The US Army likes the STARlite, but it could have a much bigger future if they can go maritime, which is what the US will need more of as it focuses on Asia,” said David Rockwell, an analyst at the Teal Group.

Drone Sales Flourish in a Time of Austerity

Drone Sales Flourish in a Time of Austerity

Philip Finnegan, director of corporate analysis at Teal Group, an aerospace consulting firm based in Fairfax, Virginia, said he expected the 2014 U.S. budget to propose reductions in existing drone programs in favor of “next generation systems, stealthier, with more power, and capable of operating autonomously if jammed by opponents.” Among major competitors to the U.S. drone makers, Mr. Finnegan lists Israeli companies — in some cases working with Indian partners — and Brazilian programs aimed at that country’s need to patrol far-flung jungle borders and a long Atlantic coastline. Also emerging as future competitors, in Mr. Finnegan’s view, are Turkish Aerospace Industries; Denel, the South African state-owned aerospace and defense technology group; and some Chinese companies.

Drones: Coming (maybe) soon to skies near you

Drones: Coming (maybe) soon to skies near you

Yet while this is an industry waiting to take off, until the Federal Aviation Administration sorts out the rules of the air for unmanned vehicles it will remain idling on the runway, because for now commercial flights are banned. Congress has asked the FAA to write regulations governing civil operation of small unmanned aircraft systems in the national airspace by 2015. It’s not clear whether the agency will meet that deadline or not. “There’s just too much uncertainty,” said Phil Finnegan, director of corporate analysis at the Teal Group, which monitors the aerospace industry. “There will be applications when the FAA opens up the airspace. The first one will be law enforcement, then civilian. But for now, they cannot fly freely in airspace.”

Drone Tests Must Adhere to Privacy Rules, U.S. FAA Says

Drone Tests Must Adhere to Privacy Rules, U.S. FAA Says

Chris Calabrese, legislative counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union, called the FAA's announcement a good first step. "It's a smart start to this to use the test phase to also test what works best to protect privacy," he said. The U.S. still needs to regulate drone use by law enforcement, Calabrese said. The global market for drones will grow to $11.4 billion in 2022 from $6.6 billion this year, according to Teal Group Corp. of Fairfax, Virginia, which analyzes the industry. Major drone makers include Northrop Grumman Corp., General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc., and Aerovironment Inc., which make most sales to the U.S. military, said Steve Zaloga, a Teal Group analyst.

Small Firms Turn to Drones

Small Firms Turn to Drones

But the mini drones are far more common, making up about 75 percent of the military’s pilotless planes. They are cheaper to build, easier to use, and popular with the ground troops because they have saved hundreds of lives, said Steven Zaloga, a senior analyst with the Teal Group Corp., a defense consulting firm in Fairfax. Aiding their proliferation is the Pentagon’s decision to give millions of dollars to the commands overseas to spend on their most pressing wartime needs without going through the time-consuming purchasing bureaucracy, Zaloga said. Getting rid of the red tape opened the flood gates for small firms. “These mini drones gave the people with their boots on the ground mini-intelligence systems, which in turn spurred more demand,” Zaloga said. “Drones are no longer just for the general sitting in his Pentagon office.”
