New York, July 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Reportlinker.com announces the publication of the report “Synthetic Aperture Radar Market – Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 – 2026)” – https: // www. reportlinker.com/p06101220/?utm_source=GNW
– In the past, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) systems were used to study the interaction of electromagnetic waves with the Earth’s surface; in recent times, the development of multichannel SAR systems has allowed the development of more sophisticated techniques for surveillance activities. The SAR instrument provides high resolution data for extensive surveillance in all weather conditions. These systems are increasingly used to quickly visualize ocean surfaces for ships, oil spills, washing facilities, surveillance, space, mining and oilfield exploration, among others.
– SAR instruments are active sensors because they can emit their energy towards the Earth and measure how this energy is diffused after being in contact with the surface of the Earth. SAR instruments use radar technology to detect energy in the microwave and radio portions of the spectrum. Since these instruments do not depend on the sun’s energy to collect surface data, SAR satellites can perform well both day and night.
– SAR bands are classified according to their wavelengths and frequency, which helps categorize the penetration strength and potential applications of a satellite.
– Despite various advantages offered by SAR systems, it is a largely underused technology compared to traditional optical imaging; In order to overcome this problem, the Department of Commerce and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced the licensing of private remote sensing space systems, which revised the regulations for licensing. licenses for the operation of private remote sensing space systems, within the framework of terrestrial remote sensing. Politics Act of 1992; aiming to make American private actors competitive with their foreign counterparts.
Key market trends
The military and defense sector to take into account significant demand
– In military applications, synthetic aperture radar is used to detect surface features, such as building complexes, missile sites, and topographic features of surrounding terrain. Thus, it is used for battlefield surveillance, weapon guidance and mission planning for future operations.
– Increased military and defense spending allows the defense sector to develop missiles with improved targeting accuracy. Compared to airborne SAR, airborne SAR exhibits various essential characteristics, such as high flight speed with rectilinear motion and wide strabismus angle, which are crucial for measuring accuracy in real time.
– With applications such as fire control of weapons (missiles or cannons) and precision control, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions, air and space SAR systems should be adopted more than systems at home. ground.
– Recently the US Air Force tested the use of synthetic aperture radar for bomb damage assessment at NellisAFB in Nevada. During this test, two F-15Es dropped Joint Direct Attack Ammunition (JDAM). At the same time, other weapon systems including the F-15E, F-35, F-16, FA-18, RQ-4, MQ-9, U-2 and joint partners used the technology SAR mapping to assess whether the bombs hit and destroyed the intended targets.
– In addition, in the defense sector, large-scale surveillance has various applications, such as coast guard ships, surveillance of remote areas for human movements, setting up security perimeters and platforms. -forms of offshore missiles. The technological developments of these are leading to the increasing adoption of unmanned airborne surveillance (UAS) systems or drones.
North America will occupy the largest market share
– North America is home to some of the major market players, such as Lockheed Martin Corporation, Northrop Grumman Corporation, and Raytheon Company. The presence of such important players is driving the technological investment for Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), driving the market growth.
– The United States has one of the largest defense budgets in the world and has proactively invested in R&D activities. The defense budget is growing rapidly every year. For fiscal year (FY) 2022, the Department of Defense proposed $ 715 billion for the Pentagon, an increase of about $ 10 billion from what was allocated to the Pentagon during the fiscal year. 2021. The Pentagon’s budget proposal includes the biggest research investment ever. , development and engineering at 112 billion USD.
– The increase in budgets reflects the increasing research on the application of synthetic aperture radars in defense. In May 2021, officials from the United States Air Force’s research laboratory at the Ohio base announced a $ 5.2 million contract to the electronics systems segment of BAE Systems and 4 , $ 1 million to Utah State University’s Spatial Dynamics Laboratory for the Moving Target Recognition (MTR) project.
– MTR revolves around the development of algorithms that recognize targets of slow military vehicles with SAR signatures that overlap the clutter. The contract awarded by the Air Force was on behalf of the United States Agency for Defense Advanced Research Projects (DARPA).
– The adoption of SAR has been widely observed in satellites for government and commercial applications. The technology provides benefits, such as obtaining accurate imaging in dark and cloud applications, collecting altitude and humidity levels. Several companies in the region have made progress in providing high-quality SAR imagery at a lower cost by taking advantage of small satellite developments. In doing so, they are paving the way for widespread adoption of the RAD.
The synthetic aperture radar market is moderately fragmented and consists of several international and regional suppliers. In addition, due to relatively moderate product differentiation, companies invest heavily in the development of strategic decisions, in order to maintain a distinct competitive advantage, through collaborations and acquisitions. Some of the key developments in the market are:
– September 2020 – IMSAR and Primoco UAV have successfully completed the integration and preliminary flight tests of the NSP-7 synthetic aperture radar on the Primoco One 150 UAV. Live flight tests in the Czech Republic verified the performance of the aircraft and confirmed a flight endurance of up to 10 hours. With the SAR radar installed on the port side of the fuselage, the cargo hold remains unobstructed and also allows the simultaneous installation and operation of the EO / IR surveillance system.
