Airborne ISR Market: Growth Drivers

The increasing demand for UAVs in military applications will drive market growth. UAVs are equipped with a wide range of components such as SAR, Laser, IMU (Inertial Measuring Unit), and a GPS. They are also small in size, cost-effective, and provide reliable solutions ideal for military applications. They are widely used in various military applications such as electronic attacks, communication transfer, suppression of enemy air defense, combat search and rescue, destruction of enemy air defense, ISR operations, and combat search and rescue operations. Many countries are focusing on strengthening their existing military capabilities due to the rising number of border disputes and increasing terror attacks. This is expected to increase the demand for UAVs in the defense sector during the forecast period.

Airborne ISR Market: Challenges to overcome

The military sector faces a major challenge in dealing with the large volume of unstructured data. Military networks need to support a wide variety of applications ranging from real-time data exchange to the reliable large-volume data dissemination. UAVs generate large volumes of data that cannot be processed with traditional data processing or management tools. Hence military agencies must incorporate tools that can analyze the large data in the real-time environment to maximize the efficiency of the data collected.
