Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Airborne Weapon Delivery Systems Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global airborne weapon delivery systems market: BAE Systems, Boeing, Elbit Systems, General Dynamics, and Lockheed Martin.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: CMC Electronics, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, and Saab.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is preference for sensor fusion technology. As the demand for sensor-based systems is increasingly growing within defense agencies, the requirement for engaging a more skilled professional for data parsing is also getting increased to reduce the amount of time consumed during the translation of raw data into an actual set of information.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is UCAVs becoming a low-cost alternative to conventional airborne attack platforms. Attack UAVs or UCAVs can fire smaller guided bombs that are significantly cheaper than the large air-to-surface missiles. At the same time, some of the air-to-surface missiles lack in range and lethality. The small bombs ensure greater operational flexibility while allowing the commanders to use them on targets like hostile ground troops or unarmored military trucks like supply vehicles.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is complexities in integration of advanced systems. The demand for effective situational awareness for pilots has led to the integration of a vast array of advanced electronic systems and data links onboard. However, the implementation of advanced systems, sensors, computers, and software has created false targets and introduced more complexities in inaccurate locations.
