Global UAV Flight Training and Simulation Market 2017-2021

About UAV Flight Training and Simulation

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are also called as remotely piloted aircraft by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) as they are controlled remotely either by a pilot at a ground station or by on-board computers. They are also commonly referred to as drones and host various types of payloads that enable the aircraft to easily navigate, communicate, and perform various missions.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global UAV flight training and simulation market to grow at a CAGR of 7.29% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global UAV Flight Training and Simulation Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global UAV flight training and simulation market: CAE, Israel Aerospace Industries, L-3 Link Simulation & Training, Selex, and Simlat

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: BAE Systems, Northrop Grumman, Textron Systems, and Thales Training & Simulation

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Virtual environments provide several benefits to UAV operators. Firstly, an enhanced sense of presence into the virtual environment occurs with the ego-centered frame of reference. Also, the operator can gain insight on the environment through real-time dynamics, multimodal interaction, closed loop interaction, and 3D viewing features. Thus, actual environment awareness of the real-time scenario is experienced by the pilot through maximum immersion.”

According to the report, the growing technological advancements have allowed UAVs to operate with VTOL capabilities that provide navigation and automated operations. For example, UAVs in military operations feature communication link over vast distances, small warheads, and multiple sensors that include jammer payloads and an infrared camera. These UAVs are being equipped with a DSLR camera used for 3D photogrammetric missions have a remote sensing platform, humidity meter, and many more additional features.

There is a growing adoption of VTOL UAVs in the military for search and rescue, disaster management, ISR and spy missions, communications applications, security, and monitoring. These UAVs are also applied in the field of aerial reconnaissance, war field management, and used as alert against chemical, biological, and nuclear threats.

Further, the report states that lack of situational awareness has resulted in a significant number of UAV accidents, that have caused end-users considerable monetary loss and challenged the need for semi-automated UAVs. In order to reduce the accident ratios, companies are focusing on the development of new technologies and systems, where human source is not required in controlling UAVs. Thus, there is a growing emphasis on the development of fully autonomous UAVs, which will have a great impact on the global UAV flight training and simulation market.
