Visiongain Publishes Military Airborne Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR) Technologies Market Report 2021-2031

05 February 2021

Visiongain has launched a new report Military Airborne Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR) Technologies Market Report 2021-2031: Forecasts by Function (Airborne Early Warning (AEW), Airborne Ground Surveillance (AGS), Maritime Patrol (MP), SIGINT) AND Regional and Leading National Market Analysis PLUS Analysis of Leading Military Airborne ISR Companies AND COVID-19 Recovery Scenarios.

The major growth driver for the global military airborne intelligence, surveillance & reconnaissance (ISR) technologies industry has been the rising demand for military drones. A large range of systems, such as a navigation system, airframe, contact link, autopilot, engine, and sensor kit, are fitted with military drones. In comparison to manned ISR aircraft, these vehicles are stable, smaller in scale, and cost-effective. They also have sensors on-board, such as LASER, SAR, IMU, and GPS. Recently, UAVs for electronic attack (EA), enemy air defence (SEAD) suppression, enemy air defence destruction (DEAD), information transition, combat search and rescue (CSAR) and ISR operations have been gradually deployed.

Additionally, with a growth in military and national security threats, rising challenges need to be resolved by the complexity and capability of military airborne intelligence, surveillance & reconnaissance (ISR) technologies. The number of intelligence, surveillance & reconnaissance (ISR) channels and data types is growing, raising the need for data processing, storage, security, and distribution at the same time.

Increased demand by the defence industry worldwide for a range of intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance techniques and equipment due to their use in many battlefield functions and supporting a war force by using its sensor data while reviewing the information obtained drives the growth of the global surveillance & reconnaissance market for airborne intelligence.

A major factor driving the growth of the airborne ISR market is favourable government policies to boost airborne intelligence surveillance & reconnaissance around the globe. For example, in June 2019, the U.S. State Department released a request for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance technology information from organisations that have demonstrated technological capacity and expertise to obtain, implement, analyse, incorporate, and offer training and technical support that is intended to help the International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) mission.

The global military airborne intelligence, surveillance & reconnaissance (ISR) technologies market is highly competitive in nature as large number of well-established original equipment manufacturers and parts suppliers are operating in this industry. Some prominent companies in global military airborne intelligence, surveillance & reconnaissance (ISR) technologies market are AeroVironment, Inc., Airbus SE, BAE Systems, Elbit Systems, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), L3Harris Technologies, Leonardo S.p.A., Lockheed Martin Corporation, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Textron, Thales Group SA, The Boeing Company, Kongsberg Gruppen, General Dynamics, and General Electric.
