Military radar and modern military arsenals equipped with electronic devices play an important role in both defense and combat operations. Military radars are majorly segmented into airborne, land- based and naval radars and are primarily used for security and surveillance purposes. Military radars give early warnings by intercepting radio signals from wide range of targets such as missiles, aircrafts, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), military vehicles and naval vessels. By functions, airborne radars accounts majority share of the military radar market followed by land-based and naval radars.
By frequency ranges and bands, the military radars can be segmented into X-band, Ku-band, S-band, L-band, etc. X-band and Ku-band radars, which are primarily used for airborne and land-based platforms, will witness high growth. The X-band radars are also used in the naval vessels where they help in effective navigation and proper traffic management by preventing collisions between vessels.
Technological developments, advancements in the field of electronics and increasing adoption of lasers, infrared and other visual technologies is going to drive the growth of electronic warfare systems. Broadly, electronic warfare can be described as usage of electromagnetic and directed energy for the purpose of attacking and controlling the electromagnetic spectrum of the enemy forces. Electronic warfare is segmented into electronic attack, electronic protection and electronic support. Electronic support plays a prominent role in threat detections and contributes majority share in the electronic warfare systems market.
