Based on application, the report categorizes the global military GPS device market into the following segments:
- Weapon systems
Global airborne military GPS device market
The global airborne military GPS device market was valued at USD 558.7 million in 2015 with a market share of more than 44%.
In airborne units, GPS technology helps in providing improved situational awareness during transportation and supervision to the drop zone during the night. The technology also assists during extreme weather operations via military grade SAASM devices. In the case of JPADS, GPS guidance receivers help in providing navigation and steering commands to guide the payload to its drop zone. Also, in military free fall techniques, high altitude low opening (HALO) or high altitude high opening (HAHO) GPS retransmission devices are used to provide signals to handheld GPS (DAGR).
Global land-based military GPS device market
According to Moutushi, “Land-based GPS devices like radio and DAGRs are the oldest GPS devices that are in use by military officials. Gradually, the technology was implemented on ground vehicles, including both manned and unmanned vehicles that were used in the warfield. Unmanned vehicles depend heavily on GPS-enabled devices because of the absence of driver to command the direction.”
The global land military GPS device market was valued at USD 324.3 million in 2015 with a market share of 25.84%. With the deployment of a large number of soldiers across the borders, the need to equip them with tankers, infantry fighting vehicles, and armored personnel carriers is also increasing.
Global naval-based military GPS device market
The global naval-based military GPS device market was valued at USD 147.6 million in 2015 with a market share of 11.76%. With a greater need for precision positioning and navigation in waters, the naval-based military GPS device segment is expected to witness rapid growth in the market to reach USD 189.1 million in 2020, with a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period.
The use of GPS devices in naval warfare is especially beneficial in surveying coastlines and channels, where there are rare land-based reference points. Changing water depths and underwater hazards are addressed by survey vessels that are equipped with GPS positions and sonar depth soundings, which help in making nautical charts to guide naval forces.
Global weapon systems GPS device market
The global weapon systems GPS device market was valued at USD 224.6 million in 2015 with a market share of 17.89%.
The traditional guided missiles needed to be fired within a certain range from the target. The distance of the target and missile was a major concern that the army was facing. Most of the early guided missiles did not have flight paths incorporated into them and were simply dropped down from aircraft. Further, bad environmental conditions made it difficult to fire a missile. With technological advancements, GPS-guided devices were installed in missiles, which increased the strike accuracy. Additionally, the modern day GPS-guided weapons are resistant to jamming with the use of advanced GPS-AJ modules.
