Missile missile defense system include marine and land based technologies to protect against variety of missiles such as cruise and ballistic missiles. Rise in war situations and conflicts across the world, rises the demand for missile defense system. Thus, missile defense system ensure the protection of citizens and national attacks against the missile attack. On the entry of lethal, covert, and nimble enemies, the characteristic of modern warfare has evolved. Since the nature of warfare is changed countries will show interest to invest in defense spending; this in turn resulted in development of many missile defense system. Presently large defense companies all around the world are investing on the development of missile defense system.
Major factors driving the growth of the market
Theatre defense systems require robust and versatile communication systems. Maintenance of consistent communication and protection of highly confidential information are two main requirements of the defense sector. If the critical data or the real time data is not protected and transferred accurately there, might be, risk of safety of the citizens or may cause dispute among various nations. Defense communication consists of all aspects related to military forces transmission of information and data for well-organized military surveillance, control, functioning, and command. Communication relies on complex and vast network of hardware and software to send information to people across geography. The growing disputes among different countries across the globe would increase military investments. These military investments are used to get advanced communication systems that provide accurate, secure, and confidential real time data transmission. Thus, the increase in procurement of advanced communication system with enhanced privacy and security feature is expected to military communication market growth in the forthcoming years.
Trends influencing the growth of the market
Various enemy airborne forces, including aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and ballistic and cruise missiles, are monitored by air and missile defence systems. For surveillance, these systems often employ long-range L-band radars and satellites. These technologies give command and control systems the ability to track and receive early warning signals. Theatre defense systems growth will be drive by the system’s ability to neutralise tactical missiles as well.
Increasing defense programs to protect against various threats to the nation. The performance of US’s weapon system is unmatched. The cost of the missile defense system is very high. Cost is one of the important factor that galvanize the missile defense program. Cost in not the sole reason for the system is deployed or scuttled. The main aim of safeguard ABM system is to protect the ICBM (Intercontinental Ballistic missile) from soviet attack. This system was fully consistent and even with the ABM treaty. However, still it survived only for four months before the US department planned to shut it down since it was very expensive to operate. On the other hand, there is always a development of new-generation air and missile defense system. The development of missiles with high-end technology is considered as the major threat to strategic platforms and locations such as military ships and air bases. Somme of the new development of missiles include High-speed cruise missiles and nuclear capable ballistic missile. Many countries are developing advance weapons capable of defeating air defense system such as (MEADS) Medium Extended Air Defense System. (PAC-3) Patriot Advanced Capability and the S-400.
Collins Aerospace its directional communication system that is specially designed for platforms such as UAVs operation at contested territory. It showed the connectivity capability in CJADC2 (Combined Joint All Domain Command and control) battle space. Collins Aerospace has been awarded a delivery contract, it was US ninth order to facilitate AN / PRC ground radios handheld, man-portable, Small form-fit (HMS) program. Aselsan delivered electronic countermeasure system to the Turkish armed forces that facilitate Strategic military communication neutralization.
The SAMP/T air-defense missile system from Eurosam is the foundation of a joint defence project that Turkey, France, and Italy intend to continue working on, according to Erdogan. Following their third intergovernmental meeting in Ankara, where nine new bilateral cooperation agreements were inked, the Turkish President and Mario Draghi, the Italian Prime Minister, delivered the remarks. The Italian Prime Minister expressed his country’s desire to work with Ankara on the Russia-Ukraine issue and expressed appreciation for Ankara’s efforts to mediate between the two belligerent sides.
Iron Dome Air Defense System is successfully tested by the US Marine Corps. During the live-fire test at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico, the Marine Corps’ Medium-Range Intercept Capability (MRIC) prototype successfully hit a number of cruise missile targets from various angles and on various trajectories. The USMC Gator radar, the CAC2S combat control system, and the Iron Dome Tamir interceptor, which can intercept cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles, rockets, artillery rounds, and mortar rounds, are all included in the tested prototype. The Israeli defence company Rafael, which was contracted to create and modify the Iron Dome to meet the requirements of the US Marine Corps as well as test and maintain the system, produced the interceptor.
