Naval radar market shifting toward multirole and modular systems, study saysNews

SAN ANTONIO. The radar technology landscape used in the naval arena is shifting toward multirole and modular systems, especially with the arrival of newer gallium nitride (GaN)-based active electronically scanned array (AESA) radars, according to the findings of a new market analysis from Frost & Sullivan, "Global Naval Radar Market, Forecast to 2028."
The study authors found that the majority of the demand for radar systems -- at least until 2028 -- will arise from upgrades of existing radar platforms with the shift from specialized radar systems to that of multirole and multiband radar systems, with radar used for surveillance radars continuing to account for the bulk of the demand over the forecast period.
New acquisitions and routine upgrades of existing fleet of destroyers, frigates, and offshore patrol vessels will create a demand for these radars, as most of these ships are used in front-line combat roles and need powerful surveillance radars to handle their primary mission requirements of searching, scanning, and tracking incoming enemy ships and ballistic missiles.
