Overview of the global all-weather landing systems market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global all-weather landing systems market to grow at a moderate CAGR of more than 5% between 2016 and 2020.  Owing to the constant growth in commercial aircraft movements as well as in passenger traffic, there has been an increase in the demand for autopilot landing systems. The application of computers in a landing system helps in effective monitoring and measuring of the heading, altitude, airspeed, and distance of aircrafts through autopilot systems to ensure their safe landing during adverse climatic conditions and low visibility. These systems are also used at airports that face critical weather conditions such as dense snow, rain, or fog. Also, several aircrafts are integrating next-generation en-route automation modernization (ERAM) with their avionics system to manage the growing population of air travellers. These systems have a satellite-based ATM approach that aids in efficient landing, take-off, and flight operations of aircraft.

To overcome the challenges of flight operations, passenger safety, and airport throughput, several aircrafts are shifting towards a modern GPS system from a radio-based navigation. The new system enables accurate and better-organized airplane approaches that result in quicker travel times with fewer delays. Moreover, the aircraft equipped with the advanced GPS system requires lesser fuel and make limited noise

Overview of the global military tank containers market

Market research analyst at Technavio has predicted that the global military tank containers market will grow at a CAGR of more than 3% between 2016 and 2020. Military tank containers are used to supply basic necessities such as food, water, and medicines to armed troops on a regular basis. These military vehicles are suitable of crossing rough terrain and perform high-speed operations on rough and rocky roads.  In the coming years, countries like China, France, Germany, India, Iran, Japan, Pakistan, Russia, South Korea, Taiwan, the UK, and the US will likely boost their capabilities to indigenously manufacture and import advanced military tank containers to ascertain adequate supply of vital products such as food, water, oil, gas, and pharmaceuticals to their respective armed troops. The defense authorities across the globe have increased their focus on the procurement and deployment of military tank containers, which will lend sufficient support to soldiers in the military encampments. The growing requirement for the timely delivery of food and other necessary supplies such as ammunition, rations, medicines, and equipment will enhance the growth prospects for this market in the coming years.  

Owing to the potential attacks on the tanks and significant threats to the goods being transported, vendors are equipping tank containers with armors to combat enemy attacks. They are developing advanced military tank containers with improved protection, better durability, strike capabilities, and more effectiveness. Each container is incorporated with an anti-tank weapon, a grenade launcher, and a machine gun, which makes them capable of detecting attacks and responding to them. The Containerized Weapon System (CWS) of the US Army can also provide a defensive firepower boost, and also helps in

Overview of the global anti-ship missile defense system market

Extensive market research carried out by Technavio’s analysts has predicted that the global anti-ship missile defense system market will grow progressively at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period.  Countries such as the US, the UK, Russia, Iran, Israel, China, South Korea, India, and Japan are expected to increase their demand for anti-ship missile defense systems during the forecast period, owing to intensifying border threats and national security concerns. Some of the major vendors in the market are designing advanced anti-ship missile defense systems with improved speed, strike capabilities, and enhanced effectiveness to cater to the demand from these nations. With an increase in naval warfare and sea border disputes across the globe, the modernization of naval combat systems is on the rise. Several ships and vessels are being equipped with advanced radar, sensors, offensive and defensive weapons, and navigation systems, to expand the capabilities of naval warfare, which will further boost the demand for anti-ship missiles during the predicted period.

The increasing use of sea-based X-band radar-1 (SBX-1) system is the latest trend gaining momentum in the market. This radar system is an enhanced version of the K and Ka-band radar systems that can detect any suspicious movement from a long distance. These are advanced electro-mechanically steered phased array radars which include a mid-course fire control radar based on a semi-submersible naval vessel. The SBX-1 platform is equipped with a command, control, and communications (C3) system and an in-flight interceptor
