The phrase “Internet of Things” (IoT) refers to the use of interconnected sensors and actuators for managing and watching over the physical world, the objects that move through it, and the people who interact with it. The automated home, the connected car, wearable technology, smart cities, and many more are examples of use cases. Globally, the Internet of Things has advanced significantly, with a focus on civil applications. IoT is a paradigm that considers the pervasive presence of many intelligent things/objects in the environment. Through wireless and wired connections, they can interact and work together to create new applications and services in order to accomplish shared goals. Items and things can be identified and intelligently created by contextually choosing, collecting information, and sharing with other items. By combining sensor systems, actuators, and control systems with existing military infrastructures, the military may become more effective and efficient.
The battlefields of the future won’t resemble anything like the battlefields of the past at all. One of the elements driving the transformation is the internet of things (IoT). Modern military operations are carried out in a challenging environment that is complex, multilayered, multidimensional, unpredictable, highly dynamic, and disruptive, occasionally with unforeseen allies and irregular foes. Technology is developing quickly in every aspect of the military, including weaponry, operations, logistics, information, etc. The Internet of Military Things (IoMT) is a class of Internet of things for combat operations and warfare. It is a complex network of interconnected entities, or “things”, in the military domain that continually communicate with each other to coordinate, learn, and interact with the physical environment to accomplish a broad range of activities in a more efficient and informed manner. The concept of IoMT is largely driven by the idea that future military battles will be dominated by machine intelligence and cyber warfare and will likely take place in urban environments.
Major Factors Driving The Growth of the Market
The military makes the best investments possible in asset management. Real-time fleet and engine condition monitoring is challenging. By implementing IoT in defense, it will be possible for cars equipped with sensors to display speed and motor status, overall engine times, fuel economy, and much more in real-time.AI integration in military transport can reduce operating costs and human labor requirements.
It can be exceedingly difficult to keep track of a Fighter’s health when they are in combat. Each soldier’s vest can be equipped with a variety of sensors, such as heart rate monitors, PH sensors, pressure sensors, and Kevlar suits with pressure sensors to assess damage, which can track, sense, and send alerts about their changing medical conditions to the command center.
The increasing demand for connected solider systems and demand for efficient defense asset management will drive the IoT in military market.
Trends Influencing Growth of The Market
Supporting AI software is one of the most intriguing applications of IoT technology. IoT and artificial intelligence work together in a beneficial way. IoT benefits from AI’s improved management while IoT benefits from AI’s distributed data. A variety of edge devices, sensors, or other devices must first be installed in many IoT technology systems before they can be maintained. Mobile networks like LTE, however, may be an option in some circumstances, such as outdoor settings. However, bandwidth is a constraint for 4G LTE. However, 5G networks are far quicker and more effectively able to accommodate the data processing required for IoT networks.
Increasing defense spending will drive the market for new procurement activities. Procurement will also be driven by prevailing geo political conditions in Europe and the Asia Pacific. Cross border aggression will give way to increased procurement of IoT enabled asset management systems and soldier systems in Europe and Asia Pacific region.
Telit, a world leader in the Internet of Things (IoT), and Thales (Euronext Paris: HO), a world leader in aerospace, defence, and digital identity & security, jointly declared today that they have entered into a legally binding agreement under which Telit intends to purchase Thales’s cellular IoT products. The anticipated transaction covers Thales’s whole line of 4G LTE, LPWAN, and 5G cellular wireless communication modules, gateways, and data (modem) cards.By completing the planned purchase, California-based Telit Cinterion will become a preeminent Western provider of IoT in aerospace & defense market and also other markets, increasing its footprint in lucrative industrial IoT end markets like payment systems, energy, e-health, and security. Additionally, it improves the business’ capacity to reply more skillfully to the escalating need for cellular connectivity and cybersecure IoT solutions.
