Global Airport Surveillance Radar Market 2017-2021

Global Airport Surveillance Radar Market 2017-2021

About Airport Surveillance Radar

An airport surveillance radar (ASR) is a radar system which is used at airports to detect, display, and enable proper guidance of aircraft in the terminal area and the airspace around airports. The airport surveillance radar market witnesses high volume sales, but the level of disruptiveness in the recent innovations is low compared with several other aviation markets. This is evident from the slow patent filing activities in the last five years.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global Airport Surveillance Radar market to grow at a CAGR of 4.62% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Airport Surveillance Radar Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global airport surveillance radar market: Indra Sistemas, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, and Rockwell Collins.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Leonardo-Finmeccanica, Harris Corporation, Intelcan, and Thales.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is evolution of revised multifunction phased array radar. The multifunction phased array radar (MPAR) project was initially directed toward establishing a platform to simultaneously carry out aircraft tracking, wind profiling, and weather surveillance with the help of a single-phased array weather radar. In comparison with conventional weather radars, which mechanically rotate and require tilting the radar dish to analyze parts of the atmosphere, the phased array radar features a flat panel antenna that remains stationary.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is integration with enhanced satellite navigation systems. With the advances in space technologies, aviation stakeholders have also begun to implement satellite-based technologies to enhance their air navigation surveillance (ANS)-related operations. The growing demand for airspace has triggered the need for next-generation technologies to make air travel safer, more efficient, and with less impact on the environment. Airport operators are in the process of supplementing their operations by amalgamating airport surveillance radars with ADS-B, a surveillance technology that helps aircraft pilots and ATC operators determine the position of aircraft via satellite navigation.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is complexity in radar subsystem upgrades. Air navigation services providers (ANSPs) have been facing technical and budgetary inconveniences associated with the decision to upgrade or replace the radar systems with analog or digital technology. The existing network of analog ATC radar systems is usually based on the surface acoustic wave (SAW) technology, which is gradually going obsolete. If ANSPs wish to replace the existing ATC radar systems completely with the ASR equipment, the cost incurred will be significantly high. Another solution is to replace specific subsystems with another analog system. This is considerably more cost-effective since the digital platforms project significant improvements in radar detection and performance.
