This Application Spotlight provides a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the IoT market related to Defence.

Defence covers a range of methods for supporting the tracking and monitoring of military personnel and equipment, providing improved situational awareness of the battlefield and supporting better Command Centre communications:

  • Infrastructure and equipment monitoring, for example, air and terrestrial vehicles including unmanned aerial vehicle (UAVs), otherwise known as drones
  • Military personnel monitoring and tracking including physiological monitoring, environmental monitoring as well as location and positioning,
  • Smart weaponry, for example, precision guided munitions, smart bombs, and tracking the position of handheld weapons.

This report provides a definition, description, analysis of drivers and barrier, and high level forecasts for growth in connections, technology split and revenue opportunity.
