Airborne Surveillance Market – Future Scenario, Key Insights, Top Companies 2028

The continuously increasing number of terrorist organizations is giving rise to defense security systems across the world. In India, for security purposes, the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) initiated a project named Airborne Surveillance Platform (ASP) to develop an airborne early warning system. This airborne early warning system is designed to detect threats from aircraft, ships, or any other vehicles at long ranges across the border. Airborne surveillance can give a bird’s-eye view, which is possible from aircraft, and provides quicker footage, a more extended line of sight, and a more extensive area of an observation than on the ground, though usually with less resolution. Nowadays, airborne surveillance can be done by manned aircraft, hot-air balloons, lower orbit satellites, helicopter-based surveillance systems, and unmanned drones.

The design of airborne surveillance systems consists of an antenna and rotodome, airborne data processor, and integrated navigation system. For airborne surveillance, a synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and night camera are used to provide situational awareness. Airborne surveillance can capture data and images in any environment, and can also offer live videos of any particular area. The market for airborne surveillance is increasing, as many influential countries are looking forward to becoming secured from enemies.

On the other hand, humans can control manned airborne surveillance, but unmanned airborne surveillance is uncontrollable when any computer malfunction occurs. Drone warfare can cause collateral damages on civilian lives and property. Airborne surveillance devices are costly to produce and manufacture. Battery or energy limitation is another challenge in airborne surveillance. The capacity of drones to support cameras and motors is not sufficient. However, commercial drones can typically fly continuously for only around 25 minutes, which increases costs. Companies are manufacturing hydrogen fuel cells, which are lighter and more efficient than electric and lithium batteries. Nowadays, many countries are adopting airborne surveillance to provide aerial overview, security guard tours, thermal imaging, short- and long-range tracking, and crowd control, most importantly for defense purposes. The commercial drone market is rapidly growing in several industries such as transport, infrastructure, agriculture, telecom, security, media & entertainment, insurance, and mining.

Several developments are waving up unceasingly in the airborne surveillance industry, with reference to cyber-security and imaging, along with the proliferating growth rate of the market has drawn Future Market Insights’ interest in studying and analyzing the market, so that we can offer our clients with a solution which is a blend of quantitative and qualitative analysis of the airborne surveillance market, along with recent developments and innovations.
