Defense & Security USVs are unmanned surface vehicles designed and used for military, defense and security missions. These USVs can be equipped with stabilized weapons systems, with surveillance systems and electro optical tracking systems capable of monitoring both day and night by using infrared vision. Global total Capex (capital expenditure) of USVs for defense & security in 2025 will advance to $XXX billion. This represents a continuous 15.0% increase yearly between 2016 and 2025 and a cumulative Capex of $XXX billion during 2017-2025 driven by the increasing adoption of USVs for protection forces, anti-piracy forces, anti-terrorism forces, surveillance and reconnaissance, electronic warfare, mining, military training and for tests of defense systems.
