Global Sensor-based Gun Systems Market 2016-2020

Global Sensor-based Gun Systems Market 2016-2020

About Sensor-based Gun Systems

Sensor-based gun systems are feasible as well as economical for the areas of strategic importance. Automatic gun targeting systems can use both active infrared (IR) or passive IR (PIR) sensors for target detection. Such guns can further be integrated with face recognition systems and Bluetooth technology for greater operational efficiency.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global sensor-based gun systems market to grow at a CAGR of 4.99% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Sensor-based Gun Systems Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global sensor-based gun systems: Armatix, DoDaaM Systems, Hanwha Techwin, Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, Saab, and TrackingPoint

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Adunok, Kalyani, TriggerSmart, and Yardarm Technologies.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Of late, many development initiatives have been undertaken to supplement the existing armaments of military forces, as well as the training applications. For example, in 2013, the US Department of Defense (DoD) initiated the development and testing of a smart targeting system, Location of Miss and Hit (LOMAH), to support the training and live precision firing needs of combatants.”

According to the report, owing to the growing cross-border terrorism and illicit trafficking of weapons, the prime focus of defense agencies has shifted toward securing international borders with advanced technologies. Therefore, the investment in homeland security has also been augmented in the last decade. In terms of securing international borders, technologies used by Israel have emerged as one of the most accepted countermeasures across the globe. Israel has initiated and implemented various state-of-the-art homeland security mechanism to ensure control over cross-border infiltration. For instance, since July 2015, the MoD of Israel has approved a plan of constructing a laser fencing system along with the Jordan Border covering a distance of 18 miles, which will be funded with $1 billion. The new fencing will be similar to the high-tech fences that Israel has been maintaining along its the borders with neighboring countries such as Egypt, Syria, and Lebanon since 2010. The fencing system will be supported with surveillance cameras, electronic detection systems, razor wires, and automatic gun targeting systems.

Further, the report states that accelerating territorial disputes and disturbances along country borders are propelling countries to adopt innovative and effective measures to minimize or counter threats. One such initiative is the development of combat or attack unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). This is an enhancement of the earlier versions of UAVs, which are mostly deployed for surveillance and reconnaissance purposes. These newly developed attack UAVs or drones are capable of hunting and launching attacks, in addition to conducting surveillance operations. These UAVs are to be fitted with weapons such as guided missiles and precision bombs for swift and effective execution of the missions.
