Global Defense Tactical Radio Market 2017-2021
About Defense Tactical Radio
Tactical communication involves the exchange of military information between ground troops, platforms, and command centers under combat situations to obtain situational awareness and command and control (C2). Also, the very essence of military operations relies on military intelligence, and effective communication and comprehension of mission-critical information determine its success.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global defense tactical radio market to grow at a CAGR of 7.94% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global defense tactical radio market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report presents a detailed picture of the market by way of study, synthesis, and summation of data from multiple sources.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Defense Tactical Radio Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global defense tactical radio market: General Dynamics, Harris, Raytheon Company, Rockwell Collins, and Thales Group.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: BAE Systems, BARRETT Communications, Cobham, Codan Radio Communications, Leonardo, L3 Technologies, Northrop Grumman, Radmor, Rohde & Schwarz INRADIOS, and Rolta India.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is development of radios with enhanced features. Advancements in wireless communication technologies have enabled the creation of tactical radios with enhanced features. The resultant features allow superior sound quality, emergency tracking, and geofencing and minimize detection by enemies. For instance, Motorola Solutions launched the SRX 2200 P25 two-way portable radio in November 2015.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing demand for faster communication with soldiers on battlefield. Tactical radios are a crucial component of the C2 domain of C4ISR. C2 systems provide warfighters with critical information that helps in effective decision making on the battleground. The usefulness of C2 systems is pronounced in irregular warfare situations, which demand quick and reliable communication for better coordination. In line with this, tactical radios are being designed to facilitate high-speed communication and exchange relevant information.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is susceptibility to hacking by enemies. Tactical radios are mission-critical communication devices. The information exchanged through these devices contribute significantly to the survivability and lethality of military forces. This makes them potential targets for enemies. These devices transfer voice and data by means of radio frequency (RF) connectivity. In addition to the wireless network, the radios also use physical cables to communicate via a terrestrial network. Both the wired and wireless networks are equally susceptible to threats from enemies.
