Electronic Warfare Market Drivers and Opportunities

Deployment of Electronic Warfare Systems on Unmanned Vehicles

Armed forces and non-state groups employ unmanned aerial systems. The tiniest commercial drones can be weaponized and used to cause catastrophic damage. Finding strategies to defeat the weaponized drones as their use spreads across the battlefield is a top issue. Electronic communications and technologies are critical for autonomous and remotely driven vehicles. As the number of duties delegated to unmanned systems grows, the demand for counter-unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and electronic warfare (EW) technologies to counter them also grows. Unmanned aerial vehicles have become an important feature of armed forces worldwide. Transforming surveillance and imagery data has become easier by deploying electronic warfare devices on unmanned platforms. Various unmanned EW missions benefit from integrating unmanned systems with communication jammers or electronic surveillance equipment. Furthermore, unmanned EW planes do not require people, lowering the chance of human casualties. As a result of these advantages, countries including the US, India, and China plan to purchase and deploy additional UAVs in their military forces.

Technological Advancements in Electronic Warfare

In the information age battlespace, next-generation fighters will encounter a drastically new electronic warfare and electronic intelligence environment. Rapid technological advancements will significantly impact 21st-century conflicts because advanced systems will provide increased situational awareness; better threat assessment; and more accurate, timely, automated matching of active signals with the resources of widely distributed libraries. Within a dispersed virtual environment, operators and analysts will be able to collaborate in real-time. They will configure, launch, and control highly efficient software agents to efficiently and swiftly complete geographically distributed activities and complicated analyses within a dynamic operational context.

Exciting new possibilities are developing due to developments in information technology, piquing the interest of military officials and leading to requirements that take advantage of the latest technologies while driving even more technological advancements. The electronic warfare tools are fast developing and the Pentagon, which is the headquarter for United States defense is also preparing ahead for the country’s future military usage from the standpoint of operational war fighting.
