Technology, Equip. and Services Showcase at Counter Terror Expo 2014

Developments in March included Freescale’s continued expansion of its defense product portfolio and Raytheon’s demonstration of GaN-on-Diamond device technology. Major contract activity included South Korea’s stated intent to purchase Lockheed Martin F-35s and Northrop Grumman Global Hawks while both Airbus and Boeing look set to benefit from a $23 billion Qatar re-equipment plan. Activity across the radar, EW, communications and weapons systems categories included contracts for ground penetrating radar, interoperability testing of radios with the MUOS satellite communications network and Anglo-French collaboration on the development and production of a joint Anglo/French light anti-ship missile.

Airborne ISR and EW Trends

Budgets, the changing operational picture and training will be the three pillars for future airborne ISR as it increasingly converges with AEW/C2BM operations. The Strategy Analytics Advanced Defense Systems (ADS) service report, “Three Pillars for Future Airborne ISR / AEW-C2BM” examines the factors that will influence future airborne ISR/AEW-C2BM operations and the associated market opportunity for platform manufacturers and the supporting supply chain.

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.

Modular Solutions Underpinned by Solid State Technologies Build Momentum behind GaN at DSEI 2013

From a radar and EW perspective, DSEI 2013 demonstrated the strides that solid state technologies, with GaN in particular, have made in terms of performance, reliability and cost to become established enabling technologies for next generation systems. By being able to combine these technologies in modular solutions, we may see faster development and deployment of systems, coupled with lower through life costs. What will be the future for military RF technologies?

RF Market Opportunities from Defense Sector Still Growing

Military expenditure faces challenges with declining budgets impacting the introduction of new platforms. However, technology will be the differentiator for future global conflict scenarios, and budgetary constraints will not detract from the need to improve system capabilities through technology upgrades. Strategy Analytics forecasts the opportunity for RF technologies remains strong despite budgetary challenges as the focus shifts towards enhancing capabilities in the areas of radar, satellite communications and electronic warfare.
