UAV Sensor Market in Military Industry 2018 Global Trends, Top Manufacturers Analysis, Industry Growth, Import & Export, Revenue by Forecast to 2023


Pune, India -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/15/2018 -- Market Highlights:

Military UAV Sensor Market by UAV Type (HALE, MALE, Tactical, Small), Sensor Type (Radar Sensor, Image Sensor, Motion & Position Sensor, Others), Technology Type (CMOS, MEMS, NEMS, Others), Application (Collision Avoidance, Navigation, 3D Scanner, Data Acquisition, LIDAR, Others), & Region – Global Forecast till 2023

The sensor is a device that detects physical input, such as light, heat, motion, moisture, pressure, or any other entity, and responds by producing an output on a display or transmits the information in electronic form for further processing. Sensors are used in unmanned aerial vehicles to cater different functions such as navigation, collision avoidance, and data acquisition. Image sensor systems are currently trending in the market and are expected to be of significant importance, particularly in battlefield monitoring. Another important application of the UAV sensors is laser scanning, which covers large areas of terrains, such as steep gullies and cliffs, which is widely used due to its high accuracy in measuring distance. Of late, high investments are being made on the development of military UAVs, which would witness a rapid growth during the forecast period. However, one of the major restraints of the market is the stringent regulations made by the local aviation regulatory bodies.
