Outlook of the global defense radar systems and technology market

Radar is an integral part of any defense inventory and since World War II, the defense forces have been using radar technology to detect and track insights and information. These radars determine the range, angle, and velocity of an object. Radar detectors are also implemented to map and locate weather conditions for the army, air force, and naval operations. Spacecraft, aircraft, ships, and vehicles are some of the key employers of radar technology. The introduction of 3D radar technology and an increase in the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are driving the market for radar systems and technology globally. Unmanned vehicles are primarily employed in peacekeeping operations and are also used for surveillance purposes. These UAVs are operated by radio signals, and the onboard radar allows these UAVs to execute moving target detection, which can track and detect moving objects such as tanks, choppers, and aircraft with a range up to 9.32 miles. This has resulted in the procurement and development of UAVs for military forces across the world, which will, in turn, propel the market for radar systems. Extensive market analysis carried out by the analysts at Technavio has shown that the global defense radar systems and technology market will grow at a moderate CAGR of around 3% by 2020.

In this market research study, analysts have estimated factors like the recent shift toward next-generation military radar systems and the implementation of radar absorbing materials to impel the prospects for market growth until the end of the forecast period. These radar absorbing materials, which are also known as chameleon stealth materials, can tune themselves and absorb different frequencies to minimize the level of detection. The rising demand for this radar absorbing material will bolster this market’s growth potential during the forecast period.

About missiles

Missiles are self-guided, remotely controlled, and propelled weapons that can be used for naval, ground, and airborne strikes. They have the ability to accurately locate and hit the targets, which are thousands of miles away from the origin of the missile. They are segmented into four platforms: surface-to-surface, air-to-surface, surface-to-air, and air-to-air missiles. These are used for airborne, land-based, and naval strikes.
