Mobile Air Defense and Counter-Fire Radar Systems

Author: Dr. David L. Rockwell, Drawn From: Military Electronics Briefing

Mobile Air Defense and Counter-Fire Radar Systems
Lockheed Martin’s AN/FPS-117(V) is a fixed-site version of the tactical AN/TPS-59 air defense surveillance radar. The FPS-117 is deployed mostly in long-range national air defense networks. The AN/TPS-117 and TPS-B34 are transportable air defense radars developed from the FPS-117 and TPS-59, for international sale. In 2001, Lockheed Martin announced it was renaming the TPS-117 as the TPS-77 for international sales.

Regional Aircraft Market

Author: Richard L. Aboulafia, Drawn From: World Military & Civil Aircraft Briefing

Regional Aircraft Market

The regional airliner market de­clined 5.1% by value last year. Much of this weakness was due to the tran­sition between Embraer’s E-Jet E-1 Series and the E-2, which first ar­rived last year. But there are several secular trends that are also damaging this segment, with a -5.2% com­pound annual growth rate (CAGR) in 2014-2018 and a -3.1% CAGR in 2008-2014.

Future US UAV Trends

Author: Philip Finnegan, Drawn From: 2019-2020 World Military Unmanned Aerial Systems Market Profile & Forecast

Source: Northrop Grumman Website

The compositions and technical features of the current US UAV force was heavily shaped by short-term war requirement for the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Systems were acquired to fulfill immediate tactical needs, even if not entirely ideal. With both Iraq and Afghanistan fading in the rear-view mirror, the services are beginning to take a fresher look at fu­ture UAV requirements.

Six Things To Expect As Plane Makers Enter A Harrowing Downturn

Author: Richard L. Aboulafia, Drawn From: World Military & Civil Aircraft Briefing

Six Things To Expect As Plane Makers Enter A Harrowing Downturn

It’s been a long time since we’ve had a jetliner market bust cycle. Other than the 737 MAX production stop, we haven’t seen topline output fall since 2002-03. Before that, this industry had been defined by serious downturns every seven years, an unpleasant pattern that stretched back to the start of the jet age in the 1950s.

Yet as a result of this remarkable 16-year run, there’s a new generation of managers who’ve never experienced anything like what we’re about to see. For them, and as a reminder to industry veterans, here’s my guide to six things we can expect.

Satellite Market Continues Expansion

Satellite Market Continues Expansion

There is no slowdown in the number of new satellite systems being announced and developed. Just learned of one called PredaSAR, which is being billed as the world’s largest constellation of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellites, with an initial 48 satellites planned.

Super Hornet APG-79

Author: Dr. David L. Rockwell, Drawn From: Military Electronics Briefing

Super Hornet APG-79
Raytheon’s AN/APG-79 radar with an Active Electronically-Scanned Array (AESA) antenna was developed for the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, for new builds and as a retrofit replacement for Raytheon’s AN/APG-73. It provides increased detection and tracking ranges versus the mechanically-scanned APG-73...

Attack Helicopters and the Three-Way, 20-Year Fighter Pod Battle

Author: Dr. David L. Rockwell, Drawn From: Military Electronics Briefing

Attack Helicopters and the Three-Way, 20-Year Fighter Pod Battle

Lockheed Martin’s AH-64D/E Apache M-TADS/PNVS (Modernized-Target Acquisition and Data System/Pilot Night Vision System) (was called Arrowhead) will be the most valuable EO/IR targeting system program over the next decade by quite a margin – Teal Group forecasts a total of more than 2,400 M-TADS/PNVS systems will ultimately be produced, with total program funding in our forecast period to be worth more than $6.2 billion (almost $1 billion annually for the next couple of years).

Bomber Electronics Systems: B-1B, B-2, B-52

Author: Dr. David L. Rockwell, Drawn From: Military Electronics Briefing

Bomber Electronics Systems: B-1B, B-2, B-52
Most Bomber electronics programs have been smaller and less expensive programs, either for legacy/rarely-upgraded Cold War systems (B-1B), or for lesser-capability systems (B-52), or for classified (but big) programs (B-2). We will discuss the B-2 Defensive Management System (DMS) in this update.
