Radar Simulator Market Trends



  • Rise in commercial as well as defense aircraft driving the market growth


A rise in commercial and defense aircraft and military land clearance operations is driving the Market CAGR for radar simulators. Terrorists are using UAVs and targeting general civilians and public infrastructure, and combating these attacks has become a significant challenge for air force authorities, homeland security teams, and defense forces. As a result, the installation of radar simulators for training police officers and homeland security forces to operate radar systems has become the priority of various governments. Aerial attacks cause serious problems on humanitarian, environmental, political, and economic levels with the destruction of public infrastructure. Radar simulators are also placed at air force base stations to train pilots and operators to detect and report any threats to the base stations. Thus, the military forces, border security forces, and paramilitaries are procuring technologically advanced radar simulators. Therefore, developing a training simulation environment for operators with the help of radar simulators has become critical and essential.


Additionally, The rebound in air passenger traffic will likely bolster demand for aircraft. The additional aircraft traffic needs to be efficiently managed at the airports. Hence, proper scheduling and aircraft redirecting are required for managing airport operations. The growth in takeoffs and landings at an airport requires trained air traffic control (ATC) personnel who are acquainted with diverse radar hardware and software used globally. Radar simulators are becoming more affordable than live training driving the Radar Simulator market revenue.

Radar Simulator Platform Insights


Based on the platform, the Radar Simulator Market segmentation includes military and commercial. The military segment is anticipated to be the fastest-growing segment of the radar simulator market owing to the emergence of modern warfare systems, such as electronic warfare and network-centric warfare, which require radar simulators for their functional testing. Another factor contributing to this segment's high growth is the demand for skilled and trained military personnel. Military radars are more sophisticated than commercial radars; hence, they require additional skills to ensure proper operation for accurately detecting radar signatures of airborne assets operating within the airspace. Radar Technology is also being upgraded to keep pace with the expansion of the global fleet size of next-gen military aircraft, in turn driving the demand for radar simulator systems for personnel training.


For instance,October 2021 Thales and Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority (TCAA) completed the delivery of the Air Traffic Management (ATM) system and radars for six of the country’s airports. As part of the modernization program, ATC surveillance radars and TopSky – ATC have been deployed at Songwe (HTGW), Dar es Salaam (DAR), Kilimanjaro (JRO), Mwanza (MWZ), Zanzibar (ZNZ) and Arusha (ARK) airports in Tanzania. Combined with current sensors, Thales‘ co-mounted STAR NG Primary approach radar with RSM970S Mode S en-route secondary radar alongside TopSky – ATC will automate the en-route, approach, and tower control centers. Besides, the RSM 970S secondary radar Mode S downloads aircraft parameters, offering timely notice of aircraft evolution and clearances to the controller. It also provides the ACAS Resolution Advisory Report.


For instance,July 2017 Ultra Electronics Holdings plc entered into a merger agreement with Sparton Corporation. Ultra Electronics bought Sparton shares for $23.50 per share in cash. While Ultra Electronics is one of the leaders in the market, Sparton Corporation is a provider of complex and sophisticated electromechanical devices.


Radar Simulator Component Insights
