The ever-increasing number of terrorist organizations is promoting the development of defense security systems all across the world. The Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) in India launched the Airborne Surveillance Platform (ASP) project to build an airborne early warning system for security reasons. This airborne early warning system is designed to identify threats from aircraft, ships, and other vehicles beyond the border at vast distances.
Airborne surveillance can provide a bird’s-eye view that is only achievable from an aircraft, as well as faster film, a long line of sight, and a larger area of observation than ground surveillance, though usually with lower resolution. Man-made aircraft, hot-air balloons, lower-orbit satellites, helicopter-based surveillance systems, and unmanned drones can all be used for airborne surveillance nowadays.
Innovation in Product and Technology
Various vendors in the air, land and marine industries are driving notable improvements in the airborne surveillance system market at the time. Saab and BAE Systems are working together to develop drones and radar technology, with Saab contributing its GlobalEye AEW&C system.
The companies are concentrating on creating and producing cutting-edge radar devices and technologies to improve airborne, sea, and land surveillance. With so many technologies being produced regularly, integrating and applying them to any system from any manufacturer has become extremely difficult.
The market is currently quite competitive, with established as well as new firms constantly developing new products and technologies. Axis Communications AB, BAE Systems, L-3 Communications, Northrop Grumman, UTC aerospace systems, Boeing, Raytheon, Rockwell Collins, Thales, Saab AB, Lockheed Martin Corporation, and Textron Inc. are some of the major participants in the airborne surveillance system market.
