This Frost & Sullivan research service titled U.S. Department of Defense: Unmanned Aircraft System Ground Control Stations and Data Links provides end-user overviews, industry challenges, types of services required, and a competitive overview of major participants in the ground control stations and data links market that make up key infrastructure nodes and communication networks supporting unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).


GCS Modernization and Development of Data Links Spearhead Growth of UAS in Recent Years

Tactical data links Accounted for about 41.3 Percent of Defense Spending on UAS Related Data Links

UAS is among the most “in demand” capabilities among the U.S. military services and efforts to employ these systems in multi-purpose and multi-role support functions is leading to rapid modernization of its key infrastructure elements – ground control stations (GCS) and data links. Further, there is a move towards system commonality through adaptation of a control segment architecture that is open, standard, and scalable and will allow operators to control multiple UAS from a common control system.
