02 Aug 13. Research and Markets announced the addition of the “AESAs4 Couplet” report to their offering. The AESAs4 Couplet is a component of a successful series of industry and market reports published on Active Electronically-Scanned Arrays (AESAs). It is highly recommended for strategic planning amidst a substantially changing market and product technologies scenario. The full report comprises five sub-modules:
– The Common Module (CM)
– Airborne AESAs
– Land-based AESAs
– Shipboard AESAs
– Worldwide AESAs Markets
Each module may be bought individually but for optimal insight it is suggested the Common Module be purchased in conjunction with a singular application-orientated module. This couplet facilitates the purchase of both the Common Module and one module of the user’s choice incorporating a saving of 27%. For all AESAs that are designed for specific platforms (airborne or shipboard) each platform was identified in detail as well as the AESA system. On the basis of as much hard data as could be determined the markets for each AESA system were forecast to 2017. This forecasting applies to all AESAs identified during the research: airborne, land-based (many being truck-mounted) and shipboard. Data supplied is also segmented by frequency band (L, S, C, X, Ku). Detailed column charts of data are embedded within each module except the common module. Data points are included on the tops of columns relating to geographically total markets.

05 Aug 13. Body Armor Weather the Storm of the Global Financial Crisis. The global body armor and personal protection market has weathered the storm of the global financial crisis, thanks to rapid technology development and deployment, and demand from both the military and public following high profile casualty rates in recent conflicts, according to this new report: The Global Body Armor and Personal Protection Market 2013-2023. Consequently, the market is expected to increase at a CAGR of 4.58% over the next decade, reaching an ultimate value of US$3.7bn. Despite significant budget cuts that will curb total defense spending, the US’ body armor and personal protection procurement programs are not expected to be affected, with the US Department of Defense outlining its intentions, in January 2012, to prepare for a smaller, but better equipped and optimally trained infantry force. This statement of intent has been in part realized through the 2013 US Army Modernization Strategy (AMS), which places significant emphasis on improving personal protection for ground troops, with upgrades to body armor and protective headgear being a primary objective. Other initiatives, such as the development and deployment of gender-specific armor, the procurement of night-vision goggles, and the development of the Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS) program are all expected to drive the body armor and personal protection market in North America. Consequently, Strategic Defence Intelligence forecasts North America to be the leading spender in the body armor and personal protection sector, accounting for 40.9% of the global market over the next ten years. Although recent years have burdened Europe with financial crisis, which has precipitated a conservative approach to defense procurement in the region, the ongoing operations in Afghanistan coupled with soldier modernization programs are expected to drive market growth in body armor and personal protection over the coming decade. Major programs, such as the UK’s Future Infantry Soldier Technology (FIST) program and Germany’s Future Soldier System (Infanterist der Zukunft) are driving the market, along with the rapid increase in the interest of having a fully modernized force has stimulated intense competition across Europe in body armors, protective helmets, and combat clothing
