New Report Analyzing Portable Military Comms Added To Research & Markets Portfolio

[Satnews] Research & Markets has just added the Global Man Portable Military Electronics Market 2015-2019 to their offerings.

The report provides a comprehensive overview of the market shares, market segmentation by application, and growth prospects by region (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA). It also presents the market landscape and a corresponding analysis of the five major vendors in the market. In addition, the report discusses the primary drivers influencing the growth of the market. It also outlines the challenges faced by vendors and the market at large, as well as the key trends emerging in the market.

New developments in antenna and satellite technology, along with high-capacity global networks, have brought military forces to the forefront of technology and capability. The introduction of inflatable SATCOM antennas, designed fr ground military use in remote areas and adverse weather conditions, is one such critical development. They are deployed in locations where it is challenging to move and install standard rigid satellite antennas.

According to the report, MAVs are man-portable unmanned aerial systems (UAS) that are equipped with a broad range of features such as airframe, engine, autopilot, navigation system, sensor package, and communication link. These vehicles are smaller in size and more cost-effective than manned aircraft and standard UAVs. They provide modernized, digital communication formats that are more secure and reliable. These MAVs also provide on-board sensors such as laser, synthetic aperture radar (SAR), IMU, and GPS.

Further, the report states that military downsizing is a defensive strategy being employed by the US and Europe that limits the development, maintenance, upgrade capabilities and procurement of man-portable military electronic technologies, which is a major concern for this market.
