With today’s ever-changing technological landscape, the defense industry is undergoing huge growth and shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. To stay ahead of the competition, key business leaders and stakeholders require the most up-to-date information to ensure long-term success. That’s why Visiongain has compiled all the relevant information into one easy-to-read defense industry report.
Below, we’ve also highlighted some of the most important changes in the industry, so let’s take a look.
A Race for Light and Medium-Weight Robotic Combat Vehicles
The United States Army recently made big waves in the defense industry by releasing a request for product proposals for light and medium-weight robotic combat vehicles. According to recent news releases, the military plans to award the contract to one company to produce for prototypes for evaluation in 2020.
The U.S. Army has placed its focus on a robotic vehicle designed on a chassis, rather than the vehicle as a whole. This is an effort to simplify the manufacturing and implementation process by using a common chassis to enable them to integrate mission systems for each weight class of vehicle.
U.S. Air Force Expanding Electronic Warfare Capabilities
The United States Air Force has begun to expand its electronic warfare capabilities in response to new security threats and developing technology. After a recent survey determined they weren’t prepared to respond to new threats on the horizon, officials were tasked with developing solutions to maintain their grip across the electromagnetic spectrum. Some of these solutions include greater cooperation across stakeholders in multiple defense agencies, developing a software-focused approach to electronic warfare, and increased education and training.
Military Satellites with Shorter Life Spans On the Horizon
Another key development and emerging trend in the defense industry is the creation of military satellites designed with shorter lifespans. Currently, military satellites have a six-year lifespan from development to orbit. However, military officials are trying to cut that number in half to create satellites that go from conception to orbit in as little as three years. To do so, officials are calling for prototype technology that can be developed and used as an architectural platform for the modernization of emerging satellites and new military technology.

Based on the frequency band, the military radar market is categorized into UHF/VHF, L Band, S-Band, C Band, X Band, and Ku/K/Ka-Band. Out of these, the S-Band segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period as S-band is widely used in the over the horizon radars as it has capability to detects threats from several kilometres.

Big spenders on defence devote approximately or more than 2 percent of their GDP to defence, a substantial amount. It is projected that various factors will play a vital role in the purchase of command and control equipment moving ahead of COVID-19 especially for emerging economies as these countries would need to prioritize on defence expenditure.
