Airborne Surveillance Market to Rise Steadily; Rising Deployment of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for Commercial Operations to Aid Market Expansion

The Global Airborne Surveillance Market Size is expected to expand at a considerable pace on account of increasing adoption of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) technologies by major military powers, shares Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Airborne Surveillance Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Radar, LiDAR, Imaging System), By System (Manned System, Unmanned System), By Application (Commercial, Military) and Regional Forecast, 2019-2026”.

Countries around the world are actively enhancing their surveillance capabilities to deter any external aggression on their territories. Airborne surveillance aircraft can play a key role in aiding countries secure their land, air, and maritime borders, which is stoking their adoption across the globe. For instance, in July 2020, the UK Royal Navy’s Air Squadron announced its intention of deploying the much-awaited Puma drones by end of 2020.

These drones can fly for 20km and transmit the collected data to a computer directly. Similarly, in July 2017, the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) ordered 12 EA-18G Growlers and 5 Gulfstream Jets to strengthen its aerial electronic warfare capabilities. Being cost-effective and having high operational efficiency, these unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are likely to witness surging demand as countries look to ramp up their defense capabilities in the coming years.

Growing Applicability of UAVs in Disaster Management to Create Unique Opportunities

Managing disasters is a monumental task requiring extensive cooperation and coordination between local communities, authorities, and humanitarian organizations. Airborne surveillance conducted through the deployment of UAVs (or drones) can prove beneficial in carrying out disaster response operations. For example, in 2015, when a massive earthquake hit Nepal, medical aid organizations and media channels used drones to conduct search and rescue operations, gather images of the affected areas, and evaluate the extent of the damage. Similarly, the North Carolina Department of Transportation launched pre-emptive drones to send emergency responders and move people away from areas where the authorities were anticipating the landfall of Hurricane Florence in 2018. Aerial imagery is also being utilized for wildlife protection. The UN, for instance, partnered with MicroMappers to develop an app called “Aerial Clicker” to crowdsource analysis of UAV visuals for disaster response. MicroMappers is now collaborating with the Kizukis Wildlife Reserve in Namibia to support the country’s efforts at conserving its wildlife. Widening scope of UAVs will, thus, fuel the airborne surveillance market growth.
