Global Military Submarine Photonics Mast and Antenna Market 2017-2021

About Military Submarine Photonics Mast and Antenna

A submarine is a naval platform that can stay underwater for an extended period to carry out missions, both offensive and defensive. It is a complex platform that includes multiple components. With advancements in technology, countries are replacing periscopes with photonics mast, which is a sensor-based digital viewing equipment. As radio waves cannot propagate in water, communication with submarines is difficult. To overcome this issue, submarines are being installed with antennas that can be raised above the water surface level, and employ ordinary radio transmissions for communication.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global military submarine photonics mast and antenna market to grow at a CAGR of 5.68% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Military Submarine Photonics Mast and Antenna Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global military submarine photonics mast and antenna market: L3 Technologies, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, and Safran.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Cassidian Optronics, Nereides, Systems Engineering & Assessment Ltd (SEA), and Thales Optronics.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is affordable modular panoramic photonics mast. Affordable modular panoramic photonics mast (AMPPM) is a product of Panavision Federal Systems, a company based in California. The AMPPM sensor mast provides a 360 panoramic search capabilities to the submarine through many visible and IR sensors.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is growing demand for multifunctional antennas. Submarines communicate by transmitting radio waves with the help of antennas. However, submarine communication is restricted by the depth at which they operate and the speed at which they travel. This requires the submarine to communicate while staying submerged at a safe depth (60-100 m) lest it may get detected. The present-day submarine communication uses ELF (3-300 Hz) or VLF (3-30 kHz) radio waves as only these frequencies can penetrate the depths in which submarines operate.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is threat owing to data leaks. The defense platforms are crucial for a nation's security. It is, therefore, important that their specifications and operational capabilities are well guarded. Submarines are highly technology-dependent platforms that integrate a variety of components. Any information regarding the functionality of these components may lead to serious security risks if leaked. In August 2016, a news published by The Australian stated the leakage of design specifications of Scorpène-class submarines, which included information about their combat and stealth capabilities.
