Global Airborne ISR Market – Industry Analysis and Forecast | Technavio

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Technavio market research analysts forecast the global airborne ISR market to grow at a CAGR of close to 5% during the period 2018-2022, according to their latest report.

A major trend in the global airborne ISR market is the increasing integration of Android and iOS-based devices. The Android and iOS operating systems have become a crucial tool for increasing the situational awareness of the military troops. The use of such hand-held devices, which support the newer generation operating system has been increasing among the military organizations. The surveying ISR aircraft attached to the sensors sense the data and send the command to the base in the real-time. From the center, the data are analyzed and assessed based on the situation, and then commands are executed to the ground military troops. Such devices increase the situational awareness of the military bases and troops and are predominantly employed in military mobilization network integration evaluation (NIE) and the software engineering directorate (SED) mobile applications.
