Market. UGV’s. Sensors and Payloads 2012-2017. Market Info Group

As a result of nearly a decade of increasing threats from improvised explosive devices in Iraq and Afghanistan, robotics for defense applications continues to evolve as innovative technology is constantly improving in functionality in countering the IED threat. UGVs used in defense applications, i.e. procured by defense departments and ministries of defense, account for an estimated 85% of the entire body of fielded UGVs.

This is one of the findings of a research report by Market Info Group LLC (MiG), titled: Global Mobile Defense, and Security Robots Sensors and Payloads Markets and Technologies Outlook, 2012-2017.

Furthermore, the new report concludes that military dominance of the UGV market for the foreseeable future ensures that only a small number of major UGV manufacturers that have already sold substantial volumes of military systems and have developed strong relationships with the military procurement establishment will control the UGV market place. Sensor and payload manufacturers, especially those with innovative and less costly products, are advised to investigate and make every effort to comprehend the mysteries of the defense procurement process and to work within the established infrastructure of that market place.

If you are a government policy maker, payload vendor, payload operator, business leader or business developer in the UGV market this report will provide you with reasoned insight about evolving (and declining) players in the robotics payload market, and will educate you on major technologies and markets that will completely change your competitive environment.

The new report covers:

  • Analysis and forecast of evolving markets and technologies
  • Operational Concepts
  • Military, Law Enforcement and First Responder and Rescue Robot Needs and Technology gaps
  • Supply chain issues and vulnerabilities
  • Imaging sensors
  • Other Sensors
  • Effectors
  • Global Demands by Region and Country
  • Future Civil Applications
  • Innovative vendors and Selected Regional Consortia, R&D Institutions and Advocacy Organizations

The new market and technology research examines, analyses and predicts the evolution of technologies, markets and outlays for the sensors and payloads that today are primarily used in military applications but are rapidly being adapted to non-military applications.

As in all dual-use high tech markets, non-military Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV) applications will eventually dwarf military market values.  But on the way engineering manpower and technical capabilities hurdles must be surmounted.

The report examines the necessary developments and robotics industry shortfalls needed to get from “now”, or the current state of the art, to the autonomous capabilities that are reliable, dependable and trusted in dual-use UGV operations.

If you are a government policy maker, payload vendor, payload operator, business leader or business developer in the UGV market, this report will educate you on major technologies, Markets, developments and shortcomings that will completely change your competitive environment.
