The Digital Radio Frequency Memory (DRFM) market has been segmented on the basis of platform, application, architecture, and region. Based on platform, the market has been classified into commercial & civil and defense. The defense segment includes air, naval, land, and unmanned platforms. Naval DRFM systems are mostly used for Electronic Support Measures (ESM). Prominent players involved in the manufacturing of naval DRFM systems provide a wide range of Naval Laser Warning (NLW) systems, and ESM and ELINT systems for submarine and surface vessels. Maritime DRFM systems provide capabilities for early detection, analysis, threat warning, and protection from Anti-Ship Cruise Missiles (ASCMs). The Digital Radio Frequency Memory (DRFM) market was valued at USD 613.9 Million in 2016, and is projected to reach USD 1,222.2 Million by 2022, at a CAGR of 12.16% from 2016 to 2022. The growth of the Digital Radio Frequency Memory (DRFM) market is propelled by technological advancements in defense radars, increased usage of military electronic warfare systems, rise in transnational disputes, and advent of cognitive electronic warfare technology, among others.
Technological advances in military technology have led to the development of superior air defense systems. These systems have posed a serious challenge for airborne units operating in enemy airspace leading to severe damage, attrition of units, and loss of personnel. Electronic warfare technologies are focused on reducing the instances of detection by enemy radars and providing the necessary time to evade them. DRFM-based deception jammers offer false information with respect to the location of an aircraft to the enemy pulse-Doppler radars. These jammers replicate radar signals and modify their signal characteristics for inaccurate tracking by the enemy radar. They employ various techniques for deception such as Range Gate Pull-Off (RGPO) and Velocity Gate Pull-Off (VGPO), among others.
Key players operating in the Digital Radio Frequency Memory (DRFM) market include Airbus Group (Netherlands), Northrop Grumman Corporation (U.S.), Raytheon Company (U.S.), and BAE Systems plc (U.S.), among others. These companies have adopted growth strategies such as new product launches and contracts to enhance their presence in the Digital Radio Frequency Memory (DRFM) market. Other market players include Leonardo S.p.A (Italy), Thales Group (France), Elbit Systems Ltd. (Israel), Curtiss-Wright Corporation (U.S.), Israel Aerospace Industries (Israel), and Rohde & Schwarz (Germany).
Northrop Grumman Corporation (U.S.) is a leading defense and security products company that accounted for the second-largest position in the Digital Radio Frequency Memory (DRFM) market. The company offers a broad portfolio of technologies in the defense sector and provides new solutions for varied applications in cyberspace. It accounted for a share of 14% of the Digital Radio Frequency Memory (DRFM) market in 2015. One of the key strategies adopted by the company is the acquisition of supply contracts from defense customers worldwide.
Raytheon Company (U.S.) is one of the world’s largest defense companies specializing in defense, civil government, and cybersecurity solutions. The company accounted for a share of 13% of the Digital Radio Frequency Memory (DRFM) market in 2015. As a part of its key strategy, the company has received a large number of government contracts and engaged in new product development. In 2015, the company received a contract from the U.S. Air Force worth USD 91.6 million to supply 250 electronic warfare jammers. The contract included the delivery of Lot 8 of the Miniature Air Launched Decoy Jammer, or MALD-J missiles that are lightweight, expendable vehicles that can deceit enemy attacks by duplicating the U.S. flight profiles and radar signatures, thereby drawing fire away from other aircraft.
