Managing War through Networks

US Battle Management Systems (BMS) are critical assets that serve as the eyes and ears of commanders in the field. Systems range from exotic command centers with numerous video screens and computer hardware to specialized airborne platforms equipped with tools that integrate and distribute information to operators on the battlefield. This research reviews the 2014 defense budget request for BMS by the individual military departments. The analyst also reviews funding forecasts out to 2018 and details some key BMS programs—C2BMC is estimated to be the highest funded program among all departments. A look at top competitors is also included, highlighting what major defense contracts were awarded during 2012, the base year for this research.

Key Findings

•The total value of the contracts the Department of Defense (DoD) awarded for Battle Management Systems (BMS) in 2012 is estimated at $X billion. The largest value of government contracts were awarded for research, development, testing, and evaluation (RDT&E), but procurement contracts came in a very close second.
•Joint Service organizations awarded X% of the entire value of government BMS related contracts in 2012. The awards total resulted from Xcontracts, X awarded by the US Special Operations Command, and the other by the Missile Defense Agency (MDA).
•Joint Service agencies also led in proposed funding through 2018 with requests totaling an estimated $ billion. The US Navy’s proposed funding came in second with an estimated $Xbillion by 2018.
•Lockheed Martin dominated the market by winning X% of the total value of contracts awarded in 2012. Joint Service departments awarded the most lucrative contracts in 2012, amounting to an estimated $X billion.
•Command, Control, Battle Management, and Communications (C2BMC) is estimated to be the highest funded BMS program among all military departments. According to defense budget documents, C2BMC budgets will total $X billion from 2012 to 2018.

CEO’s Perspective

1. Advances in data-link technology augments BMS’s range of operation.
2. The government’s push to cut spending threatens BMS research and development.
3. The Navy continues to modernize and enhance BMS capabilities.
4. The BMS competitor pool is small enough to allow new entrants.
5. Innovations in unmanned aerial vehicles threaten conventional BMS platforms.

Market Definitions

Geographic coverage: US
Study period: 2012–2018
Base year: 2012
Forecast period: 2013–2018
Monetary unit: US dollars

•The BMS market for this research is defined as the hardware, software, other equipment, and programs that specifically contribute to the execution of battle operations. The systems can be linked directly or indirectly pending the nature of conflict.
•Much of the BMS market is comprised of command and control (C2) systems, which often require key communications capabilities to perform effectively. The enclosed research will only focus on those communications systems or capabilities that directly support battle management functions.
•Although some C4ISR* programs and systems undoudebtedly support BMS, the analyst has purposely omitted them as other Frost & Sullivan research is focused solely on that market.
•Contract and budget data for this research are based on fiscal years versus calendar years. The base year for the enclosed analysis is 2012, as it is the latest and most complete year for government contract data.
•Analysis for this research is based on government reporting and select interviews conducted with market participants. Other information is based on the analysts knowledge of military requirements and the acquisition process.
