GLOBAL MILITARY VETRONICS MARKET
1.Increasing breaching incidents at borders has increased the need for deployment of advanced vetronics systems across the globe.The defense sectors across the globe have heavily invested in procuring advanced vetronics systems to stay ahead in the competition with neighboring countries.
2.Military units across the globe are inclined towards investing heavily in procuring advanced technology-equipped vetronics systems. The demand for real-time communication vetronics is projected to remain high throughout the increasing impact of the factor on the market growth.
3The rising concerns regarding geopolitical unrest and cross-border security, along with increasing instances of border breaching, there is widespread adoption of vetronics for improving inter- and intra-vehicle communications, surveillance and navigation.
4.The emergence of wireless communications technology and increasing modernization of military vehicles are also creating a positive impact on the market. For instance, unmanned vehicles (UMV) and drones are used for surveillance purposes, along with various commercial applications, such as capturing images and videos of sporting events and cityscapes.
Military vetronics implies vehicular electronic systems fixed into special purpose vehicles used by defense organizations for security. As the name suggests military vetronics are specialized electronic systems used in military vehicles.
Military uses vetronics as an imperative and efficient technology for war, national security and armory purposes. Display, GPS, advanced armory control systems, data security systems and power systems are various vetronics systems widely used in defense and military.
Integration of various military vehicles, such as amphibious vehicles, unmanned ground vehicles, infantry fighting vehicles, and mine-resistant ambush protected vehicles, in the army will support the segment growth. These vehicles require precise navigation systems, allowing the army to accurately carry out operations.
To improve the operational accuracy of these vehicles, industry players are integrating their navigation systems with Satellite Communications systems. Various countries across the globe are trying to establish a framework, where military devices can use a range of SATCOM networks, which include commercial & military networks.
The USAF had conversations with commercial satellite operators to build a hybrid architecture. This architecture will enable armed forces to switch networks between commercial and military satellites, improving connectivity and reducing chances of cyber-attacks.
Several programs are being conducted to upgrade the equipment and systems in old armored vehicles across the globe. Led by the availability of modern and evolved warfare technologies, these programs are driving the growth of the upgrade and retrofit market.
Additionally, many countries are expanding their military budgets on account of increasing terrorism and hostile activities.These activities have also resulted in the requirement of frequent repairing and installation of new parts in armored vehicles. Besides, there has been a rise in the demand for low-cost per mile military vehicles.
As the processes of upgrade and retrofit are comparatively less expensive than manufacturing a fully equipped vehicle, it has positively influenced the market growth. There has been a rise in investments for the advancement of military troop equipment for increased mobility and improved protection of land troops across both developed and emerging economies.
The Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) for the Army and U.S. Marine Corps will come standard with a shared family of robust vehicle-mount computers from the Leonardo DRS Land Electronics business unit in Melbourne, Florida.
Army Contracting representatives announced a $14.5 million order to Oshkosh Defense LLC, the manufacturer of the JLTV, for the Leonardo DRS Mounted Family of Computer Systems (MFoCS) II to be a standard component of the JLTV.
A baseline configuration helps explain how and when a military weapons system, such as the JLTV, will be upgraded or undergo other changes by describing the system’s current state.
The MFoCS II is made up of three different sized ruggedized touch-screen display units with sunlight visibility, platform computing servers, docking stations, interconnecting cables, and installation kits. More than 40 different types of ground vehicles and weaponry can use this range of robust vetronics computers.
The Joint Battle Command-Platform (JBC-P) of the Army is supported by the MFoCS II family of systems, which also includes multi-touch screens, cyber security, and system upgrades.
Along with the Army’s ongoing development of the JBC-P systems for tactical situational awareness, global blue force tracking, and in-transit visibility logistics tracking, the MFoCS II rugged computer family has also seen performance improvements of its computing server.
FACTORS CONTRIBUTING THE GROWTH OF MILITARY VETRONICS MARKET

GLOBAL MILITARY VETRONICS MARKET NEW PARTNERSHIP
To replace the Corps’ ageing fleet of amphibious assault vehicles, U.S. Marine Corps experts in amphibious warfare are purchasing new amphibious combat vehicles (ACVs) and related vehicls (AAVs).
Marine Corps Systems Command representatives announced a $183.8 million purchase for 36 ACVs for the ACV 1.1 programme from the BAE Systems Platforms & Services division in Sterling Heights, Michigan. With the order, the company’s most recent ACV contract’s overall value has increased to $3.3 billion.
Marine infantry warfighters can be transported by ACV wheeled armoured combat vehicles from ships offshore to invasion beaches. The pricey expeditionary combat vehicle (EFV) programme was scrapped by the Marine Corps.
The Superav 8×8 amphibious armoured personnel carrier created by the Italian company Iveco Defence Vehicles is the design inspiration for BAE Systems’ ACV.
ACV systems are created with low-profile optical and infrared signatures, modular protection, and other armoured vehicle technologies in order to function through enemy direct fire, indirect fire, and land mines.
With M1 Abrams main battle tanks in a mechanised task force, the vehicles can move at speeds of up to 65 mph while manoeuvring on land from as far away as 12 miles out at sea. They can also switch seamlessly between performing ground operations and operating in the water.
The ACV is capable of destroying comparably light enemy combat vehicles. The ACV can move 17 Marines at a pace of at least 8 knots through three-foot seas while providing direct fire support for Marine infantry.
The ACV can operate with a wheel blown off and has considerable ground clearance on terrain to withstand the effects of land mine blasts.
