As the nation with the largest number of satellites, it is taking every precaution to ensure that these systems are safeguarded and constantly operational. US adversaries' threats are evolving with the use of cyber techniques and spoofing tactics and the development of anti-satellite weapons to render these space vehicles ineffective. The protection of satellites is paramount to ensure that US military capabilities (surveillance, missile detection, command and control) are available and operational. Enhancing satellite system signal strength and anti-jamming capability are trends attracting more competitors into the market. Funding for defense space programs is escalating and is opening window of opportunity for companies to enter the defense satellite market; however, those windows close quickly.--BEGIN PROMO--

Research Scope

The focus of this research is to examine the portion of the US satellite market specifically reserved for use by DoD agencies. It includes spending on the following segments:

  • Asset Defense: Programs and development efforts to protect the functionality of defense satellite systems.
  • Asset Development: Research and development efforts intended to enhance the capabilities of defense satellite systems in all categories.
  • Communications (comms): Satellite communications (SATCOM) systems dedicated to support DoD operations.
  • Detection/Warning: Development, upgrades, and maintenance of satellite systems that serve as an essential element in the process of alerting US defense entities of an impending attack.
  • Ground Elements: Support components on the ground that control and track satellite systems. Ground elements are also key nodes that collect and relay information generated by satellite systems.
  • Meteorological: Developments of satellite systems dedicated to provide weather data for military operational planning and execution.
  • Position Navigation and Timing (PNT):  Global positioning satellites (GPS) provide essential PNT that enhance warfighter capabilities.
  • Surveillance: This segment focuses on the spending allocated for the observation of space assets, whether from the ground or from space.

Key Issues Addressed

  • Is the defense satellite market growing, and which segments are landing the highest value of government contracts?
  • Which companies are leading the market, and how are they ranked?
  • What factors are driving or restraining the market?
  • What significant trends are occurring in the market?
  • Are there any growth opportunities in the market?

Key Conclusion

Detailed spending on the Military Intelligence Program (MIP) and National Intelligence Program (NIP) are not publicly released due to their sensitive nature.  Therefore, Frost & Sullivan assumes the forecast presented is somewhat less than what will actually be spent through the research period.

2018 Top Technologies in Sensors & Instrumentation http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=D82D-01-00-00-00 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=D82D-01-00-00-00 The technology and innovation research report covers the top 10 Sensors and Instrumentation technologies that will have highest impact in the near-to medium-term. Key technologies in the Sensors and Instrumentation cluster were evaluated to arrive at the top 10 technologies for 2018. The technologies were selected after critical evaluation of an exhaustive list of technologies using TechVision's proprietary selection methodology. The research service assesses technologies from various aspects such as nature of disruption, key technology drivers, market potential, patents, funding, applications and megatrends impacted. The top 10 technologies covered in this research service are Biosensors, LiDAR sensors, Sensor Fusion, ADAS, Smart sensors, Photonic Sensors, Gesture Recognition, Large area sensors, Energy Harvesting and Electronic Skin/ Skinput. Research focus areas will continue to include capabilities beyond sensing that is being more intelligent or smart and including plug-and-play features. Some of the features include enhancing automation levels, miniaturization, intelligence, and reducing cost (while still trying to be profitable and maintaining competitive advantage). IoT concept will be key aspect in driving innovations in sensors segment. Wearables and sensors will drive opportunities in advanced healthcare and medical diagnostics and home monitoring applications. Smart wearables will involve deeper patient engagement leading to predictive healthcare. Sensor fusion systems, where information from different sensors such as LiDAR and smart sensors are combined to achieve higher accuracy are expected to transform advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and move automation (highly automated driving (HAD)) to the next level. Mon, 30 Apr 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Global Airport Self-Service Market, Forecast to 2025 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=MD9F-01-00-00-00 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=MD9F-01-00-00-00 The demand for air travel has been increasing over time with the International Association of Air Travel (IATA) expecting 7.2 billion air travelers in 2035, compared to the 3.8 billion travelers in 2016. While this increasing demand implies higher revenues and growth, airport stakeholders are expected to consistently increase their capacity while whittling down the operational costs and providing passengers with maximum value and a wholesome experience to ensure repeat engagements with the airport. However, legacy airport systems are disparate and inefficient leading to long queues at passenger touchpoints such as check-in, security screening, border control, and boarding, resulting in delays that impact the punctuality of flight schedules and airport efficiency gains. Self-service was introduced in airports to automate the passenger processing process, minimizing wait times, and for allowing passengers control over their journey. With more passengers using digital devices such as smartphones, the propensity to utilize personal devices to enable easier and faster check-in and boarding has greatly increased. This has led to a greater adoption of self-service initiatives with operators embracing it to enhance airport operational efficiency.--BEGIN PROMO--

Research Scope

This research service will focus on the self-service initiatives, such as self-service check-in systems, self-service bagdrop systems, and self-boarding systems, that are being widely adopted at passenger touchpoints. The research excludes self-service initiatives for security applications. The service outlines key takeaway factors for market stakeholders, underlines market drivers and restraints, describes hardware and technology currently utilized, and identifies the future trends in the market. The report provides a competitive benchmarking of products and suppliers taking into account key market participants. Information collated within this report is obtained from surveys conducted across 50 global airports, attendance at several international airport conferences, interviews with C level executives of market stakeholders, and from secondary research, with base year set as 2017 and forecasted to 2025.
