Global Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Market 2017-2021
About Synthetic Aperture Radar
The technology of remote sensing satellite involves monitoring, observing, and gathering information about the Earth (land and ocean) and its atmosphere with the help of inbuilt sensors that are integrated into airborne platforms, such as balloons and aircraft, or satellite platforms. The successful aggregation of remotely procured data with traditional satellite systems for environmental assessment and resource management has led to the implementation of such technologies in the user domain.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global synthetic aperture radar market to grow at a CAGR of 5.23% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global synthetic aperture radar market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers new installations and retrofitting of SAR systems on manned aircraft, UAVs, and satellites to estimate the present and future market.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Synthetic Aperture Radar Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global synthetic aperture radar market: Airbus Defence and Space, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and Thales.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: MDA Information Systems, SSTL, Sandia National Laboratories, and Raytheon.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is preference for integrated C4ISR ecosystem. Traditional C4ISR systems use separate stand-alone units that are equipped for different functions and are meant for specific mission requirements. This requires separate systems and displays for collecting and analyzing information. Thus, the entire process becomes rigorous and time consuming.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing investments in surveillance and attack UAVs. UAVs are rapidly becoming a key strength in security countermeasure operations. Along with the rapid technological advancements in the military electronics segment, C4ISR systems that support those operations are getting integrated with UAVs. Microelectronics and device packaging play vital roles in continued development and growth in the C4ISR UAV payload market in North American and European countries.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is issues of space debris and deorbiting. There have been more than 4,800 launches since the beginning of space activities more than half a century ago. These launches have placed over 6,000 satellites into the orbit. After the mission life, many of the satellites are decommissioned, which means that only less than thousands of these satellites in orbit are still operational.
