While down at the AUVSI expo in Washington, D.C., I had the opportunity to check out sleek unmanned systems and chat with smart industry representatives. And what I soon realized was, despite booming global sales in drones, tough days were in store for little guys making little bots.
It’s no secret that military robots are big business. The Teal Group predicts that global spending on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) will increase by $9.2 billion over the next decade. And that’s just the flying bots.
