Airborne ISR is the use of air platforms with sensors to fly in areas of interest and collect vital information (such as locations and signatures) about targets of interest and/or terrain/environment, on the surface or in the air. ISR is one of the terms that someone could come across, with the other ones being ISTAR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance) or STAR. Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance are related but distinct missions.

Market Forecast’s latest market study “Airborne ISR Platforms & Payloads - Market and Technology Forecast to 2029” examines, analyzes, and predicts the evolution of airborne ISR technologies, markets, and outlays (expenditures) over the next 8 years: 2021-2029.  It also examines the major airborne ISR markets geographically, focusing on the top 95% of global markets, in the United States, Europe, and Asia. In this report we analyze the market size of the global Airborne ISR market for the period 2021-2029. We primarily focus on the key markets - Americas, Europe, Asia, Middle East and Africa.

As of now the United States remains the largest market for airborne ISR systems. European Union and China are the other two major markets. Throughout the report we show how ISR aircraft are being used today as a force multiplier by the militaries of U.S, China and a few other countries. To provide the most thorough and realistic forecast, this report provides a twin-scenario analysis, including “steady state”, emergence of new technology.

In this report we have classified Airborne ISR under eight (8) major groups. We will research these six major groups and also provide forecast figures from 2021 - 2029.

These major groups are:

  • Region
  • Technology
  • Platform
  • System
  • Fuel type
  • Payload
  • Application
  • End User
