RF-based Electronic Warfare Spending on Land-based Systems Driven by Asymmetric Warfare Trends
BOSTON, Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Global spending on RF-based Electronic Warfare (EW) systems is forecast to grow to over $9.3 billion through 2022. While troop withdrawals from theatres such as Iraq and Afghanistan are causing a short-term decline in the number of land-based Electronic Warfare equipment for Electronic Attack (EA) capabilities such as jammers, the general trends towards asymmetric warfare and the use of IEDs will continue to proliferate, leading to continued demand for land-based EW systems: The Strategy Analytics Advanced Defense Systems (ADS) service forecast model, "Land-based EW (EA) and Components Forecast 2012-2022," details global expenditure for EW equipment with future demand segmented in terms of form factors, power outputs and frequency trends.
"The move towards wideband capabilities coupled with portability requirements have driven a move towards solid-state solutions with gallium nitride (GaN) technology firmly entrenched as an enabling technology for land-based EW systems," noted Asif Anwar, Director of the ADS service. "The overall component market for Land-based EW (EA) equipment will grow at a CAGR of 6.4 percent through 2022."
"The ability to operate across wider bandwidths and at higher frequencies while generating suitable output power in the transmit chain will dictate component technology choices," added Eric Higham, North American Director for ADS. "The use of wideband semiconductor technologies will also enable the development of smaller lightweight personal protection devices."
Land-based EW (EA) and Components Forecast 2012-2022 is the first in a series of forecast models that detail the future outlook for electronic warfare systems, in terms of market outlook and technology trends.
