New Market Research on the World Market for Military Infrared Imaging Detectors and Systems (Vol. IRW-M) by Maxtech International, Inc.


SARASOTA, Fla., Jan. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxtech International, Inc. is releasing the 2019 edition of its market research report on military infrared detectors and systems markets (Vol. IRW-M).

Next Gen DAS on the F-35 with new infrared technology

Global military infrared imaging systems had a good year in 2018, with growth of 9%, mainly driven by growth in the U.S., where there was an increase in the defense budget along with pent-up demand for upgrading existing infrared systems. This, along with the development of advanced new infrared detector technologies is expected to drive the military infrared imaging market to $14 billion by 2023.

Some of the important trends that are shaping advanced military infrared systems include:

  • The increasing level of maturity of Type II Superlattice (T2SL) detectors which have the potential to replace incumbent MCT and InSb technologies. The first major military T2SL infrared program was awarded in the U.S. in 2018.
  • Uncooled systems for Manportable use with increasing performance based on large-format, small pixel Wafer-Level-Packaged (WLP) Focal Plane Arrays (FPAs) many of which are fabricated at commercial fabs that also fab low-end commercial FPAs.
  • The development of head-mounted augmented vision systems with uncooled FPAs, digital low-light-level sensors and SWIR sensors.
  • 3rd Gen dual-band cooled systems – a long delayed technology which started its programmatic development in 2016 in the U.S. and will also be incorporated in armored vehicle systems in France, followed by other countries. The technology will provide armored vehicles with unprecedented capabilities for precision strike.
  • High Operating Temperature (HOT) cooled detectors and systems made with T2SL technology, bulk nBn/XBn technology or MCT. which are expected to be incorporated into major new Programs of Record over the next five years.
  • SWIR detector (mainly InGaAs) growth in the double digits 
  • Digital-pixel readouts (DROICs) that will bring a new level of performance to all types of infrared detectors.

Geographically, the U.S. continues to be the dominant supplier of military infrared systems. However, Europe, Israel and China also have a sizable presence. Countries in the Middle East, Asia and elsewhere are increasing their purchases of these systems.
