Taking Directed Energy Systems to the Battlefield

RF- versus Laser-based Systems
Strategy Analytics ADS service attended the IQPC Directed Energy Systems 2014 event to catch an update on the progress that Directed Energy Systems (DES) are making from laboratory concepts to workable solutions that can form a realistic addition to existing weapon system arsenals. The use of technology can have a direct impact on the force effectiveness and reducing casualties, and directed energy systems arguably represent the current leading edge of science and technology in the military domain comprising use of the electromagnetic spectrum across RF-based and laser-based technology solutions.

Military Radar Market - Strong Demand for Electronic Components

Following a sustained period of growth, overall defense expenditure is expected to flatten out over the next ten years. Global defense expenditure was estimated at $1.7 trillion in 2012 and will show an estimated growth of just 0.2% through 2022. While global expenditure will remain flat, individual regional trends are seeing some varying dynamics. North America, led primarily by the US, has led global expenditure on defense as the primary contributor to coalition action in theatres such as Iraq and Afghanistan. As these conflicts are drawn to a close, the US is expected to reduce spending on military budgets.
