Scope Summary

Demand for C4ISR technology is growing in Navies worldwide. The long pending decommissioning of conventional C4ISR systems with modern, space based c4ISR systems was the need for navy of various nations. The forecasting period will create opportunities from navy in offshore and in the sea intelligence.

Scope for C4ISR systems using satellites and Unmanned Aircraft Systems will grow quickly. Zero causality and real time decisions are the key drivers for using space-based and unmanned aircraft-based C4ISR systems.

C4ISR solution providers invest heavily on high speed bandwidths to securely transmit data at lightning speed. Use of the Internet is crucial for communication between the field teams and control room. Internet has improved the efficiency of communication and data transfer including audio and video files on real time.

Cyber security is another big hurdle in implementing C4ISR systems. Taking war control to electronics and computers has great threat from data hacking and other sorts of cyber threats and this is a major concern.
