Research and Markets Adds Report: European C4ISR Market Assessment
Apr 13, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of Frost & Sullivan's new report "European C4ISR Market Assessment."
In a release, Research and Markets noted that report highlights include:
The European market is gravitating towards greater C4ISR integration among the air, land and naval services at the national level, and among nationals at the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)-led coalition level In the face of rising upheavals, the NATO is looking for synergy in coalition forces, through greater integration of largely disparate national resources. Most of these synergies can be achieved by migrating C4ISR on service-oriented architecture (SOA) based federated system.
The C4ISR market is receiving a huge boost from increased end-user investments in integration projects involving satellite communication/tactical command (SATCOM/TACOM) networks and strategic C2 systems. Other projects that are likely to earn substantial revenues are integration projects involving surveillance platforms with fire control and C2 systems; vehicular integrated communications (VIC), C2 and surveillance systems; and software-defined radio (SDR) upgrades on VIC/ high channel density receiver (HCDR). Reconnaissance and targeting systems; datalinks-based air and missile defence (AMD) network backbone; and intelligence/image processing, exploitation and distribution (PED) (data fusion) also have significant revenue-generating potential.
Integrated C2 at the national level is the most attractive sector in Europe in 2011-2020, says the analyst of this research. The market will also see higher spending on networked communications, vehicular C4 systems and intelligence analysis systems. A quick-to-react crisis management chain (National C2 system) is considered the centrepiece of the C4ISR architecture and hence, the focus of all integration projects. Commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS)-based secured solutions that meet European and NATO standards will eventually replace most embed systems.
