Global Airborne Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) Market to Reach US$26.8 Billion by the Year 2026

Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) from the air are basically defense operations comprising a host of systems based on highly advanced technologies to acquire and subsequently process the information that decision makers on national security or even top military brass require. Systems for ISR range from hand-held gadgets to satellites in orbit. Growth in the global market is spurred by growing demand for numerous surveillance, intelligence, and reconnaissance equipment and techniques from the defense segment worldwide for use in multiple battlefield-related functions. Furthermore, there is also a need for assisting combat forces by employing their sensor data in the analysis of all collected nformation. Additionally, favorable initiatives by various governments for improving surveillance of airborne ISR also are a critical factor fueling the market's growth. The advances in technologies and a growing need for tighter and more robust national security are also expected to be a market growth booster as the requirement for more reliable and accurate systems for tracking, detecting, and classifying different threats, coupled with stricter security regulations keeps increasing simultaneously.
