The increase in anti-extremist missions across the globe and the requirement of adequate defense systems drive the need for smart weapons since these systems provide options for targeting, offer upgraded weapon sights, and improve the impact level of bombs and precision artillery munitions, increasing the lethality of the attack.

The market research report identifies the integration of smart weapons in bomber planes as one of the key trends behind the growth of the smart weapons market. A country with the ability to carry out a long-range strike operation gains military advantage over other countries. Bomber planes are used to drop heavy air-to-surface missiles or bombs on distant enemy targets. However, with the emerging tensions and the need to carry out long-range strike operations, the features of bomber planes requires a significant upgradation. The incorporation of advanced smart weapons will significantly improve the efficiency and combat abilities of bomber planes and also ensures the effectiveness of military operations. Technicians from Boeing and the US Air Force recently installed a prototype of new smart weapons bay launcher in a B-52 bomber plane. This new prototype enabled the bomber plane to internally carry satellite-guided joint direct attack munitions (JDAMs) and also allowed the plane to increase its carrying capacity and make space for eight additional cruise missiles.
