 Unmanned Sea Systems Market to grow by USD 7111.8 million between 2024-2028

According to a research report “ Unmanned Sea Systems Market” by Type (UUVs, USVs) Technology (Remotely operated vehicle, Autonomous vehicle) Geography (North America, APAC, Europe, South America, Middle East and Africa)- Global Forecast to 2028 published by Technavio, the market size is estimated to grow by USD 7111.8 million at a CAGR of almost 15.21% during the forecast period. In the realm of Unmanned Sea Systems, stealth technology, or low-observable technology, has emerged as a significant differentiator. This sub-discipline of defense tactics, initiated in the late 1960s, employs passive electronic countermeasures to reduce the visibility of underwater UUVs, submarines, and surface vessels to radars, sonars, and other detection systems. BAE Systems, a leading player, has successfully implemented this technology in their Talisman UUV, featuring carbon fiber hulls for enhanced stealth and low observability. This innovation, borrowed from stealth aircraft design, underscores the company's commitment to staying at the forefront of advanced technology in the Unmanned Sea Systems Market..
