Types of Military Sensors:

• Radar Sensors: Radar sensors use radio waves to detect and track targets such as aircraft, ships, and missiles. They provide crucial information on target location, speed, and direction.

• Sonar Sensors: Sonar sensors are used in underwater applications to detect and track submarines, torpedoes, and other underwater threats. They work by emitting sound waves and analyzing the echoes to determine the presence and location of objects.

• Electro-Optical/Infrared (EO/IR) Sensors: EO/IR sensors use visual and infrared technology to detect and track targets, especially in low-light or night-time conditions. They are used for surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance purposes.

• Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) Sensors: CBRN sensors are designed to detect and identify chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear threats. They play a vital role in detecting and warning against potential weapons of mass destruction.

• Motion Sensors: Motion sensors detect movement and are commonly used in perimeter security systems to detect unauthorized intrusions. They can be deployed in various military applications to enhance security and situational awareness.

• GPS and Navigation Sensors: GPS and navigation sensors provide accurate positioning, navigation, and timing information to military platforms, enabling precise targeting, troop movement tracking, and coordination.


Airborne Segment to Grow Rapidly Backed by Surging Usage of Military Helicopters & UAVs

Based on the platform, the airborne segment generated 27.03% in terms of the military sensors market share in 2019. It is expected to show the highest CAGR throughout the forthcoming years because of the rising usage of UAVs, fighter jets, and military helicopters in India, China, and the U.S.

Regional Insights-

Rising Modernization Programs to Boost Growth in North America

In 2019, North America procured USD 10.05 billion in terms of revenue and is set to dominate in the coming years. The rising initiatives by governments to conduct modernization programs, as well as the procurement of 3D expeditionary long-range radar in the region, would aid growth.

Europe, on the other hand, is set to grow substantially on account of the rising usage of EOIR military sensors by the U.K. Defense Ministry. In Asia Pacific, the increasing territorial disputes between India and Pakistan, as well as the geopolitical tensions between China and India, would contribute to growth.
