Growing emphasis on providing network-centric and data-centric communications is expected to drive the military communications market. With advancements in handheld products and technologies such as Software Defined Radio (SDR), the market is expected to have an exponential increase over the forecast period. The military is poised to make use of virtually unlimited IP peer-to-peer connections for embedded systems. The military communications market is primarily based on defense budgets and government policy, which reflect the need to support military exercises and ongoing operations. The U.S. government has been increasingly securing commercial capacity owing to lack of appropriate military satellite systems. Introduction to new satellite communication platforms such as US-based Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) and Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) systems provides protected communications capabilities for tactical warfighters and strategic command operating on various platforms. However, financial limitation towards procurement and interoperability issues may hamper military communications market growth.
The market can be segmented on the basis of components into very small aperture terminal (VSAT), fleet satellite communications system (FLTSATCOM), mobile satellite service (MSS) and military strategic and tactical relay (MILSTAR). On the basis of application, the market includes routine operations, situational awareness and command & control applications. On the basis of communication type, the military communications market is categorized into, shipborne, ground-based, underwater, air-ground and airborne communication. Shipborne communications spending can be characterized by demand for multiple radio systems. North America is expected to be the dominant regional market followed by Asia Pacific. Rapid adoption of advanced Ka band, better security services and mobile Ad Hoc networks are some of the factors attributable for North American market growth. Europe is expected to grow at a slow pace after overcoming the economic issues.
Major market vendors such as General Dynamics, Thales Group, Harris Corp and Rockwell Collins have diversified their business by providing strategic alliances and integrated products. Other prominent vendors include BAE Systems, L-3 Communications, Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin and Alcatel-Lucent.
