The dramatic escalation of small, increasingly sophisticated UAS (sUAS) being available to nation states, nonstate actors and individuals exposes an easily obtainable and growing threat to DoD, Law Enforcement, Homeland Security, Critical Infrastructure affecting Civil and Commercial targets alike. DoD, NATO, Allied Countries – along with our mutual Adversaries have recognized the proliferation of VTOL & Fixed Wing platforms and breakthrough technologies have evolved rapidly as lethal weapons and constant threats. FY2023, DoD plans to spend approximately $668 million on CUAS R&D and another $78 million on procurement. As DoD continues to develop, procure, and deploy these systems, Congressional oversight of their use will increase as will decisions about future authorizations, appropriations, and additional legislative actions by Congress will continued to be closely examined.
