Drivers

Need to modernize and replace aging communication equipment

To meet the ever-growing need for reliable and secure communications in the military sector, modernization and replacement of aging equipment are essential. In addition to this, reducing the size, weight, and power of components is another crucial factor driving the need to modernize and replace aging military communication equipment. For instance, in July 2015, Harris (US) received a USD 45 million contract from the US Army's MET Program to replace up to 80 aging strategic satellite communications terminals with next-generation military satellite communications terminals, which would provide a worldwide platform for high-priority military communications.

Restraints

Interoperability issues

Communications interoperability and collaboration between different defense agencies or departments is a critical issue. Interoperability enhances the ability of forces from different nations to work effectively in a synchronized manner. Spectrum allocation, rapidly changing technologies, changing nature of operations, and inadequate funding add to the interoperability issues in military communications. Using similar communication equipment globally may be a solution but is not feasible. The current operations in military communications need to be scalable to meet the increasing demands in communication services. This is achieved through adaptable communication that ensures the changing requirements of varied operating environments are met.

For secure end-to-end communications, Secure Communications Interoperability Protocols (SCIP) is the next-generation interoperability standard. Many IP-based network interoperability solutions have also been introduced, and their adoption is expected to grow during the forecast period.

Opportunities

Rapid adoption of advanced Ka-band satellites for communication services

Ka-band satellites provide higher spectrum and enable much higher data speed and capacities as compared to Ku and X bands. Thus, the introduction of newer Ka-band satellites allows armed forces to better plan, lead, and execute complex operations. Due to the rising need to utilize more satellite bandwidth capacity at a competitive cost, the use of Ka-band satellites for military communication is growing. The use of Ka-band allows higher upload and download data speed. It also lowers bandwidth cost due to the increasing number of users of Ka-band satellite communication systems. In addition, new Ka-band satellite systems are equipped with smaller, steerable beams for high-capacity density, which adds enhanced network jam resistance for communication platforms while supporting significant uplink data rates for military operations such as ISR and other data-rich applications. Thus, Ka-band is a preferred frequency for today’s mobile and global satellite communications that augments existing military satellite communications (MILSATCOM) services with maximum reliability, capacity, flexibility, and capability.

Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks (MANETS)

In emergency situations, MANETS are preferred as they are wireless networks and can be easily deployed. Compared to GPS, MANETS support built-in geographic location using an extremely accurate form of triangulation, which enables soldiers in a military operation to triangulate the positions of vehicles or devices. MANETS primarily focus on low energy consumption within the network. Devices such as SDRs can reduce the energy consumption within an ad-hoc network as less energy is consumed at the transmitter and receiver nodes. MANETS are being deployed on a large scale due to the increasing use of UAS for both surveillance and military war operations that generate a massive amount of data which needs to be transferred between command centers and tactical communication networks. There is a huge opportunity for MANETS to proliferate rapidly in the military communications market.

Challenges

Budget constraints

The adoption of advanced and innovative technologies and products is a constant challenge for militaries due to budgetary limitations and developing skilled personnel. Budget constraints often hinder the adoption of advanced communication systems. Countries in the European Union recovering from economic stress have also shown intentions to cut their respective defense budgets. Countries around the world are exploring and inviting new alternatives in military communications to reduce costs. Presently, the COTS technique is the potential choice for governments to lower costs. Therefore, the military communications industry is shifting from defense suppliers to commercial providers. For instance, the US DoD’s budgets are low; thereby the military will be forced to spend less on communication equipment and other military equipment.
