New American drone manufacturers are launching new aircraft at a record rate. Commercial drone vertical has never seen such an influx of Made in America Drones.
The drone industry is seeing the writing on the wall when it comes to the future of drone. American drone manufacturers are being supported by the American Government to support domestic operations. Just as these American manufacturers are setting up to launch these military drones, the commercial market is being flooded by new aircraft.
The American drone choices sure are ramping up, unfortunately most of the drones were announced...not launched. While most of these drones have similar flight control systems, software & hardware engineering has separated the companies. We recently discussed how the main alternative to Chinese made flight controllers recently launched government edition features and upgrades. These new upgrades may have led to the influx of drones we are seeing today.
American drone manufacturers are all clamoring to be labeled "Made in America." Why is this designation so important at the moment? Maybe the designation will mean a lot more after we see the updated National Defense Authorization Act? Maybe the designation will mean even more by the end of December. When the FAA will be publishing their ruling on Remote Id.
Notice the feature list on most of these drones would allow for various editions of Remote ID. Then again some of these drones advertise no geofencing. The influx of new drones potentially foreshadows the upcoming showdown between Chinese and American drone manufacturers.
Rhetoric has ramped up politically against Chinese tech firms like DJI. Setting the stage for a new competitive environment in the drone industry. Maybe American drone manufacturers are counting on a high-noon shutout of Chinese drones soon. What do they know that we don't?
