Market overview of naval combat systems
Technavio’s research analyst predicts the global naval combat systems market to grow at a CAGR of 3% during the forecast period. The rising need to enhance the marine operational safety and efficiency is the primary driver for the growth of this market. The growing technology and investments have led to the evolution of numerous automated systems such as electro-optic detection, underwater acoustic weapons, fence, virtual fence, MACE, and integrated security systems. Moreover, the integration of advanced radar systems, EO/IR technologies, and underwater weapons with the combat ships is projected to lighten the workload of the naval crew of their workloads and assures the availability of essential maritime information with enhanced protection.
The emergence of the advanced airborne radar is expected to contribute to the market growth during the forecast period. For instance, the advanced airborne sensor (AAS) project, developed by Raytheon along with the US Navy, is equipped with a double-sided active, electronically scanned array (AESA) technology and is capable of automatically detecting vessels over a long distance. It can also deliver high-resolution imagery of surface areas from long range even during adverse weather conditions, prohibiting the use of EO/IR imaging.
