The “War on Terror” and the twin “asymmetric” conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan have driven the U.S. to fundamentally rethink its approach to the needs and applications of smart weapons.

The U.S. government is the major customer of the smart weapons industry, and therefore, an understanding of the impact of U.S. budget woes on upcoming spending budgets is crucial to understanding future trends in the U.S. and global smart weapons markets.

Add to this complex equation the growth of Chinese and Indian military power, the changes in conflict profiles, and the future evolution of the smart weapons industry becomes a puzzle requiring robust analysis, and “out of the box” thinking to solve and exploit successfully.

In addition to specific business opportunities, this new report explores and analyzes the following sectors, across three different possible scenarios, designed to cover multiple eventualities in these uncertain times:
  • Air-to-Ground Missiles
  • Surface-to-Air Missile, Smart Bombs
  • Sensor Fused Weapons
  • Stand-off Missiles
  • Direct Energy Weapons
  • Precision Artillery Munitions
  • Smart Bullets
  • Electro-Magnetic Pulse Weapons
