Definition / Scope
A Land Battle management system is a mobile command and control and information system primarily used by military units. It collects and analyses data from conflict zones. It consists of a variety of computing, navigation, imaging, and communication systems, as well as sensors, hand-held or wearable devices, and weapon platforms, all of which are designed to improve the troops’ decision-making abilities through collaborative planning. It also provides a comprehensive and real-time view of the battlefield, including target analysis, automated recommendations, and environmental awareness. In addition, the system helps with surveillance, coordination, operational tempo, and logistics management.
The Global Land Battle Management System market is divided into four categories based on application Navigation System, Communication and Networking Systems, command and control, Weapon Systems.
Based on the Solution this market is segmented into products and services.
On the basis of Region, the Global Land Battle Management System Market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and Latin America.
The global Battlefield Management Systems Market was valued at USD 15.57 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.8 percent to USD 21.62 billion by 2027.
The market is largely driven by factors such as the growing need for instant command to make decisions in a timely manner while on the frontier or on the battlefield based on acquired information reported, gathering a common operating picture (COP) of military operations, and transferring or exchanging them to the desired locations with a high level of encryption. Because of its higher capabilities of information dominance, battlefield awareness, and decision advantages, most of the leading defense powers and intelligence bodies have made next-generation machineries and information technology pertaining to surveillance & reconnaissance, cyber security & data warfare a requirement for most of the leading defense powers and intelligence bodies.
The BMS assists soldiers in completing missions by presenting command and control (C2) information for various plan overlays, enemy troops, own troops, and terrain elements. BMS consists of highly modern hardware components and upgraded software in order to deliver such data. A computer and a touch screen are the primary components of battlefield management systems. In order to enter textual information into the BMS, a keyboard is also included. To collect information about the current location, BMS stations are connected to a global positioning system receiver. In order to improve performance, sensors such as a laser range finder can be used.
The ability to interpret intelligence data into information that can be used in the battle zone is the most important factor in the success of any military action. In this example, BMS facilitates review, real-time situational awareness, and planning, as well as executive action implementation and commands. It supplies the battlefield with reliable data, virtual reconnaissance, flexible communications, and dynamic situational awareness. It also boosts operational efficiency, intelligence surveillance, coordination, navigation, logistics management, and warnings.
Some of the factors driving the growth of the BMS market include the growing requirement to prevent friendly fire, increase military personnel efficiency, and ensure the security of military soldiers around the world. However, interoperability, training, functionality, man-machine interface, data communication, and training are all obstacles in the development of battlefield management systems.
Volatility in geopolitical and economic environment
As most A&D firms have a global presence, the geopolitical and economic conditions in their core markets have a considerable impact on their operational and financial performance.
Terrorist activity is on the rise across the globe, particularly in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. In the Middle East and North Africa, unpredictable geopolitical situations are contributing to higher danger levels, instability, and border ambiguity, as well as increased migration and risks to persons and assets.
Countries are increasing defense and homeland security spending, with a focus on intelligence, detection, and monitoring, as a result of the continued need to monitor and secure borders. A slowdown in any of the important markets for A&D companies, on the other hand, might result in tighter credit markets, poor liquidity, and significant volatility in credit, currency, commodity, and equity markets.
Compliance with a wide range of regulations and restriction
Because A&D businesses’ clientele include government and defense agencies, they must operate in a highly regulated environment. As a result, A&D firms are subjected to increased scrutiny in terms of bribery and corruption.
Changes in accounting and revenue recognition regulations can pose a risk to A&D players. For contracts that don’t qualify for revenue recognition over time, A&D players would have to recognize revenue at a single moment in time under Accounting Standards Codification Topic 606.
The Battlefield Management Systems Market is largely fragmented, with a number of conglomerates and medium-sized and small start-up companies accounting for the majority of global market share. Lower entry barriers, a lack of economies of scale, and fierce market competition are all factors contributing to the Global Land Battle Management System industry fragmentation. Businesses with lower margins and higher costs will benefit from a fragmented market. When interacting with other countries, they also lack the benefit of size.
Top Market Opportunities
Real-time Data Collection and Distribution
Improved system reliability is a critical component in any country’s decision to use battlefield management systems. Advanced data distribution units are being used to help capture and deliver real-time situational intelligence across a variety of defense platforms, including combat vehicles and command centres. Additionally, the utilization of GPS tools to provide an overall view of the battlefield provides critical information for mission planning and control. BMS is conducting research and development to improve its overall capabilities in the area of supplying secure communication and weapon integration.
For instance, General Dynamics created a power management system for TACLANE-FLEX in March 2020, which allows for safe communication across the battlefield. The new version gives you more control over the power usage of your communication device in tactical and strategic circumstances.
Software Defined Radio (SDR) in Communication Systems
Commercial wireless network standards are constantly evolving, from 2G/3G to 4G, and now 5G-enabled systems are being used. Due to these transitions, wireless network operators confront a slew of challenges as they migrate their networks from one generation to the next. Military personnel should upgrade the traditional system whenever new standards and norms are put into the market. The incorporation of Software Defined Radio (SDR) chips in CSISR army equipment, on the other hand, may be able to solve this migration challenge, as only software upgrades will be required to transfer to the new network.
The Indian Ministry of Defense (MoD) and Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) inked a contract for Rs 1,000 crores in February 2021 for the acquisition of Software Defined Radio Tactical Systems (SDR-Tac). It’s a ship-borne SDR system with four channels, multiple modes, and multiple bands. For network-centric operations, it will support ship-to-shore, ship-to-air, and ship-to-ship voice and data communication.
Surging Frequency of Joint Operations by Global Defense Forces
The strengthening of strategic military alliances between the United States and several Asia-Pacific sovereign nations, as well as the subsequent reinforcement of military deployment and intervention, has created a complex scenario, requiring regional countries, such as China, to rapidly modernize their defense capabilities in order to protect their vested interests. USA is realigning their military plans and organizational structures in response to evolving challenges. Artificial intelligence (AI), quantum information, Big Data, cloud computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are among the cutting-edge technologies that have resulted in the development of long-range precision, intelligent, stealthy, or unmanned weaponry and equipment, revolutionizing traditional warfare in favor of intelligence warfare.
Several contracts for integrating advanced battlefield management systems have resulted from the modernization efforts. Saab AB was awarded a contract by Luerssen Australia in April 2018 for the Situational Awareness System (SAS) for the Royal Australian Navy’s new Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPV). The deal, which is planned to extend until 2030, includes provisions for installing SAS aboard the 12 OPV ships. During the forecast period, such advancements are expected to fuel the market’s growth potential.
Increasing demand for new battle management systems
Militaries are increasingly operating on crowded battlefields that are spreading geographically and across domains, all while being constantly monitored, necessitating quick decision-making through excellent situational awareness, intelligence collecting, and action targeting. Due to the increased congestion on the battlefield, decision-making and reaction times have slowed.
Ministries of Defense throughout the world are buying a variety of new weapons to make soldiers more lethal and less susceptible on today’s battlefields. New battle management systems (BMS) with improved situational awareness, tracking, and communication are in high demand.
Rapid adoption of unmanned vehicle systems
Ground soldier protection, observation, lethality, survivability, and command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) have all enhanced as a result of the increased usage of unmanned vehicle systems in recent years. Procurement of new solutions and investments in emerging disruptive technologies, such as Big Data analytics and artificial intelligence, are part of ongoing BMS modernization efforts. The increased use of unmanned systems is driving development towards secure line-of-sight and beyond line-of-sight communication networks, which incorporate sophisticated security measures to improve anti-jamming and interception capabilities.
Active self-healing networks, in which a node can drop out of the network at any time without effecting performance, are projected to be used in more applications. As the amount of sensor data grows, so does the required throughput.
Rising military expenditure signals positive for BMS growth
The need for advanced technology weaponry is growing as a result of unstable conflict scenarios in many countries throughout the world, which reflects government military spending in both developed and developing countries. Different governments are actively spending in the procurement of BMS components in order to operate effectively during combat. The need for sophisticated technologies such as augmented reality and virtual reality (AR/VR) to be integrated into combat operations is transforming battlefield operations and leveraging on government investments in soldier upgrading.
According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), worldwide military spending climbed by 2.6 percent to US$ 1.82 trillion in 2018. The United States topped the list of military spending in 2018, investing $649 billion. The US Department of Defense’s changes to new projects and programme are mostly responsible for the huge investment (US DoD).
High development and maintenance costs
In today’s conflict, a battle management system is critical. However, the development and integration of these systems into any nation’s defensive capabilities will come at a significant cost. BMS is a multi-domain platform that combines numerous defence systems, command and control systems, and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems. The cost of developing, installing, and maintaining these systems is high. As a result, the cost and time necessary for the development and deployment of BMS systems is a major stumbling block to the market’s growth.
For instance, in 2019, US Navy provided a contract to General Dynamics worth USD 731.8 million to provide secured voice and data communication for armed forces across all platforms.
Because of its nature, aerospace and military is a heavily regulated business dominated by multinational corporations and subject to government monitoring. It has a diverse range of ecosystems. IT and operational technologies are tightly integrated in production (OT). Embedded systems have very rigorous development methods. As is often the case, modern technologies are altering the game. Because of its rising exposure to non-A&D, OT-based technologies, the A&D industry is increasingly dealing with basic cyber security challenges.
The emergence of sophisticated cyber-attacks on the BMS systems from worms and viruses to enhanced techniques such as zero-day attack, Dynamic Trojan Horse Network (DTHN) Internet worm, and Stealth Bot can pose as a serious threat for the national security and can acts as a detrimental factor for the growth of the Land Battle Management System.
Obsolete communication technology infrastructure
Battlefield management systems take data from portable sensors, electro-optic sensors, and radars, among other sources. The volume and size of data created by these sources is tremendous, posing considerable transmission and storage issues. The transmission and distribution of such a large amount of data has an impact on real-time processing speeds and may cause damage to the decision-making process, jeopardizing the military’s ability to carry out missions.
To improve real-time communication, a sophisticated communication technology infrastructure based on big data and efficient data centres is necessary. Such infrastructure necessitates a significant investment, which is a significant issue for the battlefield management sector.
Depreciated expenditure and uncertain financial condition
According to Reogma Market Insights, the top 15 countries account for 84% of the total global Defense Budget, while the remaining 16% of the global defense budget is contributed by the other 180 countries which are focusing on developing their defense infrastructure but are still significantly lagging their developed counterparts and is primarily due to the factor that majority of these countries are not war-torn and are classified as the Armed Neutrals (the states that makes no alliance with either side in a war)
Also these countries tend to fund their economic growth and hence the investments coming into the Land Battle Management System is mainly flowing from the top 15 countries and can be limited hence affecting the growth of the Global Land Battle Management System Market.
The Internet of Things (IoT), also known as the Internet of Military Things (IoMT), is a network of sensors, wearables, and devices that use cloud networks and edge computing to calculate data storage closer to the point of use and improve response times, resulting in a more effective and informed fighting force. Future troops will be able to spot potential dangers and monitor physical and mental metrics, transforming them into systems or hubs. The IoMT emphasises the term “connected soldier” by utilising capabilities that allow him or her to link to a variety of platforms, including ships, planes, tanks, and unmanned vehicles.
Artificial intelligence (AI)
AI will unavoidably be at the forefront of future army modernization, by developing more precise algorithms that allow a computing device to learn as it analyses data, such as facial recognition, which might be used to distinguish civilians from potential enemies. AI will play a critical role in command and control (C2) operations like as firing orders and Manned-Unmanned Teaming as robotic unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) become more common (MUM-T).
Regulation in the USA
The Defense Production Act is the principal source of presidential authority for accelerating and expanding the supply of products and services from the United States’ industrial base that are required to support national defense. Emergency preparedness activities conducted under title VI of the Stafford Act, the protection or restoration of critical infrastructure, and efforts to prevent, reduce vulnerability to, minimize damage from, and recover from acts of terrorism within the United States are all supported by DPA authorities. Authorities granted under the DPA can be used to:
Require acceptance and preferential performance of contracts and orders under DPA. (Federal Priorities and Allocations System (FPAS).)
Provide financial incentives and assistance for U.S. industry to expand productive capacity and supply needed for national defense purposes;
Provide antitrust protection for businesses to cooperate in planning and operations for national defense purposes, including homeland security.
