Global Military Land Vehicles Open Systems Architecture
Western suppliers dominate initiatives for open systems architecture (OSA), with the British Def-Stan 23-09 Generic Vehicle Architecture and American VICTORY (Vehicular Integration for C4ISR/EW Interoperability) paving the path to ongoing and future OSA adoption.
Despite the benefits of OSA, wider adoption in land vehicles is expected beyond the forecast period—in the middle of the next decade. OSA will have a huge effect on military suppliers—specifically on small and medium enterprises (SME)—allowing for much broader adoption of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions in defence contracts.
There are no substantial gaps in OSA technology. One of the main challenges is that defence budget cuts scaled back procurement and modernisation programmes for combat land vehicles; therefore, fewer platforms are available for suppliers of OSA solutions.
It is expected that combat vehicles will be procured or modernised with OSA by 2022. The US adoption rate will be highest, at about % of vehicles, but the global adoption rate is expected to be much more modest, at %.
About this report
This Market Insight identifies the current standards in place and the benefits of adopting open systems architecture (OSA) for military combat land vehicles, both from industry and end-user perspectives. It identifies the main stakeholders, as well as the market drivers and restraints, for global OSA adoption. The study also provides OSA adoption rates and estimated time frames, with a focus on the US and European markets and their main combat land vehicle programmes. The OSA market forecast from 2014 to 2022 is included. The market forecast is based on data gathered through extensive secondary research and existing Frost & Sullivan market intelligence.
