Defense organizations extensively employ C4ISR systems to accomplish military operations and disseminate intelligence among their ranks. Nations facing security threats, including territorial disputes and aggression from hostile neighbors, increasingly rely on C4ISR systems to gauge enemy movements and conduct high-risk military operations. Product innovations, such as the development of low-power consuming and lightweight equipment and systems and the integration with the Internet of Things (IoT), are projected to drive the market further.
Following these trends, market evaluations forecast that the global C4ISR market size valued at $119.60 billion in 2022 is projected to reach $170.23 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 4 percent during the forecast period of 2023–2031.
Among the forces driving the C4ISR market, the Internet of Things (IoT) is prominent. The ability to connect disparate systems and networks into an extensive integrated network is revolutionizing warfare. Advanced military forces are investing in C4ISR systems and infrastructure to analyze and disseminate data. IoT is much grander in scale than currently available interconnected command and control systems and platforms. IoT can therefore provide a much more comprehensive network and game-changing capabilities. Successful IoT deployments take C4ISR processes to a higher level by exploiting large volumes of collected data for optimized decision-making.
To put the spotlight on other key developments, Aerospace and Defense Review illustrates how companies are using the latest technological developments to improve the C4ISR system. This edition also features thought leadership articles from Leyla Akgez-Laakso, CIO of Finavia, Sarah Leeper, Principal Director for Defense Systems at Draper, and Pedro Imaz, Head of Manufacturing, at Héroux-Devtek.
