Last year, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a request calling for compact drones to be used by border patrol agents,” according to State Street. “Using border patrol drones is not new—unarmed Predator drones have been used there since 2005.

By 2020, the illustration below shows military drones could potentially represent 70% of the $100B drone market, according to Goldman Sachs research.”
