Global Military Aircraft Avionics Market - Global, Trends, Forecast, and Analysis (2018 - 2023)
Synthetic Vision Systems(SVS) in aircraft is used to overcome the issues associated with limited outside visibility for the pilot. Prior the development of SVS, some imaging sensors have been used to enhance visibility for the pilot. This consists of both active and passive sensors that were used to penetrate weather conditions, such as fog, darkness, rain, haze, and snow. Generally, under foggy weather conditions and heavy precipitation, the infrared sensors and high-frequency radars do not perform correctly and can lead to fatal accidents or collateral damage.
Increased Investment in Military Aircraft Avionics Industry
One of the key factors boosting the growing demand for military avionics systems is the rapid rate of technological advancement in the Aviation industry. The major vendors in the market should keep track of dynamics and changing demands to maintain their market share and remain competitive.
The US government is developing new fighter jets in collaboration with few other countries but its market share will reduce significantly as it will mostly be taken up by the Asia-Pacific region’s aircraft demand. The US Department of Defence has been investing large sums of money to improve and upgrade its fleet of military aircraft with modern aircraft avionic systems and new components.
The US Navy agreed upon a USD 12.3 million contract with BAE Systems Electronic Systems segment in Greenlawn, N.Y., to build 265 conformal-controlled reception pattern antenna (C-CRPA) units, for different versions of the Navy's F/A-18 carrier-based combat jet. The US Navy avionics experts are enquiring designers at BAE Systems Inc., to provide special anti-jam conformal aircraft antennas, to ensure that F/A-18 combat jet pilots have regular access to Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite navigation signals, even in the presence of electronic warfare (EW) jamming, and interference.
Key Players: Thales Group, Rockwell Collins, and GE Aviation, among others.
