Global Defense Satellite-based Navigation Systems Market 2017-2021

About Defense Satellite-based Navigation Systems

A navigation system is an electronic system that aids in navigation. The system contains maps that are displayed to the user in a readable format via text or in a graphical form. The navigation systems that are available for military use are in two setups. These include hand-held devices, such as the Defense Advanced GPS Receiver (DAGR), and embedded systems that are fitted onto aircraft, naval vessels, or ground vehicles. The two types of navigation systems that are commonly used are the inertial navigation system (INS) and the satellite-based navigation system.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global defense satellite-based navigation systems market to grow at a CAGR of 4.10% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Defense Satellite-based Navigation Systems Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global defense satellite-based navigation systems market: Honeywell International, Raytheon, Rockwell Collins, Safran, and Thales Group.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: BAE Systems, Harris, Moog, Northrop Grumman, and KVH Industries.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is emergence of adaptive navigation system (ANS). The dependence on GPS for PNT by militaries over the years has substantially increased. However, access to GPS is easily denied by methods such as jamming and signal disruptions. In addition, other areas in which military personnel operates (inside buildings, under dense foliage, in urban canyons, underwater, and underground) are restricted or will not have access to GPS.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is growing development and launches of satellites. Countries across the globe have been dependent on the US' Navstar, which is a network of satellites that provide GPS navigation services for military and civilians. To use the satellite navigation system of a foreign country, the borrowing country must maintain a strong relationship with the host country. There are also issues with respect to privacy and security concerns. As GPS services have been provided free of cost over the years, the host country has no contractual obligation and has the right to withdraw its services anytime.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is alternatives to satellite-based navigation systems. Militaries, being aware of GPS and other signals being disrupted in the electromagnetic spectrum, have been researching ways to develop modern technologies and systems to get the location and navigation information of satellite signals that are absent or degraded. One such solution that the US Army is currently working on is the use of a pseudolite, which is a pseudo satellite that operates low to the ground, sending stronger signals to the navigation systems compared to those that soldiers get from a satellite in orbit.
