Airborne ISR is used for collecting information regarding the intruder’s strength, movements and activities. All kinds of Information are gathered with the help of the ISR systems, which are then operated by secret intelligence. Airborne ISR performs the tasks of identification, recording, capturing, analyzing and reporting.
Since the last decade, technological innovations have brought about a revolution in global military affairs. With the increase in the global arms trade, the potent warfare capabilities of a number of countries have increased, invariably. Some countries, including India, Turkey and South Africa, will boost their capabilities to indigenously develop and procure advanced airborne ISR systems for enhanced offensive and defensive applications. ISR systems, networked communications systems and secure communications products, are critical elements for the command, control, communication, and intelligence gathering systems. These products and services connect a variety of airborne, which are used in the transmission, processing, recording, and monitoring functions of such systems. They provide the war fighters with the data from command centers, communication nodes and air defense systems, for real-time situational awareness and response.
The growing demand for UAV has been the major growth factor for the global airborne ISR market. UAVs are equipped with a broad range of systems such as airframe, engine, autopilot, navigation system, sensor package, and communication link. These vehicles are reliable, smaller in size, and cost-effective, as compared to the manned ISR aircraft. Also, they provide on-board sensors such as LASER, SAR, IMU, and GPS. Recently, there has been an increased implementation of UAVs for electronic attack (EA), suppression of enemy air defence (SEAD), destruction of enemy air defence (DEAD), communication transfer, combat search and rescue (CSAR) and ISR operations.
On the other hand, with an increase in military and national security threats, the sophistication and capabilities of ISR systems need to address the growing threats. The number of ISR platforms and data types are increasing, which simultaneously elevates the need for data analysis, storage, security, and dissemination.
As per MRFR analysis, the global airborne ISR market was valued at USD 21,114.3 million in 2016, which is expected to reach USD 27,786.6 million by 2023 with a CAGR 4.10% during the forecast period 2017-2023.
