Northrop Grumman Corporation (U.S.) and Harris Corporation (U.S.) are main players in Software Defined Radio Market
Software defined radios include field programmable gate arrays (FPGA), digital signal processors (DSP), general purpose processors (GPP), programmable system on Chip (SoC), and other application specific programmable processors. SDR identifies the frequency of an incoming signal, loads the respective software module, and then generates the required frequency for outbound communication. It provides flexibility, cost efficiency, and power to drive the communication forward. The software defined radio market is estimated to be USD 16.24 Billion in 2016, and is projected to reach USD 29.12 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 12.39% from 2016 to 2021. Demand for advanced communication systems to replace legacy equipment, network interoperability, and reduced cost of end products and services are the driving the demand for software defined radio systems.
The latest software defined radio systems utilize more commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) IP-based equipment which enhances their capability and enables them to offer use of integrated voice, video, and multiparty conferencing. Another major trend in the software defined radio market is the increasing usage of cognitive radio with SDR.
Key players profiled in the software defined radio market report include Northrop Grumman Corporation (U.S.), BAE Systems Plc. (U.K.), Elbit Systems Ltd (Israel), Thales Group (France), L-3 Communications Holdings, Inc. (U.S.), and others. These market players have been focusing on securing government contracts as a major strategy for organic growth. Their core competencies include widespread geographical presence and high investments in R&D activities.
Northrop Grumman Corporation (U.S.) is a major player in the software defined radio market. Northrop Grumman Corporation is a leader in the development of software defined radios (SDRs) for integrated avionics systems that provide communications, navigation, and identification (CNI) functions. The company has been focusing on securing contracts to achieve growth in the software defined radio market. For instance, Northrop Grumman received a contract worth USD 32.8 million from the U.S. Air Force to provide radio frequency countermeasure systems for AC-130J and MC-130J aircraft.
Harris Corporation (U.S.) is one of the top companies profiled for the software defined radio market, globally. It was formed with the merger of ADB Airfield Solutions with Safegate in March, 2016. The company specializes in providing tactical and airborne radios, night vision technology, and defense and public safety networks. The company has been focusing on securing contracts to achieve growth in the software defined radio market. For instance, Harris Corporation received a four-year contract worth USD 159 million in 2015 to provide tactical radios to the armed forces of Canada.
