Network Centric Warfare - Demand Drivers, Key Applications and New Developments
Global expenditure on Network Centric Warfare components in the domain of command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems is anticipated to witness robust growth over the forecast period, primarily due to the increased importance of NCW systems in modern or fourth-generation warfare. Modern conflicts include a mix of physical combat, and mental and tactical elements, where the enemy could be a nation or a faction of society, such as a terrorist group.
Technological advancements in the field of NCW technologies have resulted in the production of open smartphone-enabled services and application systems, which are tailored to meet the needs of the military. One such innovation is the SoldierEyes mobile smartphone solution, a product of Overwatch, which is a strategic business unit of Textron Systems Advanced Systems. Russia and China have also undertaken development programs for the same and intend to induct these systems in their navies to enhance NCW capabilities that are already deployed.
Rise of asymmetric warfare and the growing need for interoperability and integrated solutions in order to meet modern force re-structuring demands among military strategists are major factors that are anticipated to have a positive impact on the NCW systems market. Given the benefits provided by these NCW systems, the implementation of the NCW doctrine is considered by most nations to be amongst the most formidable capabilities required for victory in a conflict. Ever since the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan the importance of NCW has been highlighted even more given the close scrutiny by defense analysts of other countries and advantages thus desired.
