Global Man-portable Communication Systems Market 2016-2020

About Man-portable Communication Systems

A man-portable communication system is an easily movable or handheld communication device used for on-site and tactical defense communications. These compact systems are capable of overcoming background noises caused by vehicles, military tanks, sirens, vessels, and boisterous crowds, and ensure that each message is clearly heard and understood. Man-portable communication systems have a broad range of secure and anti-jamming voice and data applications. These systems are the advanced mobile communication products used for the transmission and reception of voice and data signals, essential in military operations.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global man-portable communication systems market to grow at a CAGR of 5.55% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Man Portable Communication Systems Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global man portable communication systems market: General Dynamics, Harris, L-3 Communications, Rockwell Collins, and Thales.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: BAE Systems, Cobham, Leonardo, Raytheon, and Saab.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Emergence of inflatable SATCOM antennas is one of the trends spurring the growth of this market. New developments in antenna and satellite technology, along with the nimble and high-capacity global networks, has brought military forces on the forefront of technology and capability. The introduction of inflatable SATCOM antennas, designed for ground military use in remote areas and adverse weather conditions is one such critical development. They are deployed at locations where the movement and installation of standard rigid satellite antennas are challenging. These antennas have the transmission power advantages of a large antenna and portability and low weight features of a small aperture antenna.”

According to the report, introduction of MNVR program is a key driver contributing to the growth of this market. The US Army have improvised battlefield communication, without the use of satellites. They have come up with high-bandwidth and vehicle-mounted networking radios, which use LOS communications waveforms. The advanced solution, called as the mid-tier networking vehicular radios (MNVRs), link the army men with battalion and brigade commands, providing ground-level connectivity. The MNVR program also allows rapid exchange of voice messages, images, and video with commanders. The integration of MNVR into Army tactical vehicles also ensures wireless communications and networking services for both mobile and stationary forces.

Further, the report states that reduction in portable load is a major challenge this market is facing. the addition of advanced portable electronics such as radios, range finders, navigation, and optronics systems to protect and empower the soldiers has resulted in an exponential increase in the total weight being carried. The combined weight of equipment restrains infantry personnel from being agile, mobile, and effective war fighters, thus putting their lives at risk. A concerning challenge is to maintain the effectiveness of man-portable communication systems while reducing the equipment weight the same time, which requires huge investments, extensive R&D, and technological advancements. As a result, the defense manufacturing companies worldwide are focused on integrating the inexpensive and lightweight, man-portable communication systems to reduce the burden on infantrymen. The defense ministries have also invested in R&D projects, focusing on weight reduction of equipment that the soldiers carry.
