As per a new industry analysis by Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, worldwide sales of electronic warfare systems are expected to rise at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2022 to 2027.
The military’s electromagnetic signal technology can be used to detect enemy vehicles, defend allied troops from attacks, and provide forces with electromagnetic spectrum sensor support. This capability is broadly known as electronic warfare (EW).
Electronic warfare has always been a part of modern combat, but it has advanced far beyond radio jamming. As it becomes easier for electronic warfare systems to sense, exploit, and manipulate the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS), several major companies and countries are highly investing in the field.
The development and application of next-generation electronic warfare threat detection technologies will be accelerated by cognitive systems’ innate ability to learn, sense, reason, and interact with people and their surroundings. When cognitive systems are used to construct electronic warfare, military researchers can more easily spot trends and create hypotheses that could result in important systemic improvements while also anticipating needs unique to certain operations. The most efficient cognitive electronic warfare apps don’t just rely on computers; they also use human approaches and understanding.
Combining the powers of electronic and cyber warfare, information operations, and signal intelligence for both offensive and defensive reasons is a new industry trend. The seamless confluence of electronic and cyber warfare provides warfighters with a powerful capacity for both defense and attack. A shift in warfighting tactics is anticipated as a result of the increasing usage of cyber technology.
