An Essential Market Driven by Innovation

Key Findings

•US defense spending on geospatial products, services, and research is estimated to reach $x billion by 2018. This amount is roughly $x million less than forecasted for 2017 in a prior Frost & Sullivan research titled “Analysis of the US Defense Geospatial” based on 2013 budget requests.
•A review of the Department of Defense (DoD) 2014 budget reveals that joint service organizations are forecasted to spend an estimated $x billion through the reporting period. In addition, the largest portion of future spending is expected to be invested in geospatial engineering and integration development estimated to reach $x million by 2018.
•According to published government reporting, geospatial contracts awarded during 2013 amounted to an estimated $x million, a significant drop from contracts awarded in 2011. Both contract data and budget forecasts do not include classified spending, which are not accessible for reporting.
•SAIC led the market by obtaining x % of the total value of contracts awarded in 2013, which centered around their offering to provide high-resolution, 3-dimensional (3-D) geospatial information. New Light Technologies Inc. was able to arrive in 2nd place by winning geospatial services contracts in support of Hurricane Sandy.
•The US Air Force awarded the highest amount of geospatial contracts in 2013, estimated at $x million for professional services in operations research and quantitative analysis.
•The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) manages its geospatial capabilities through the Geospatial Information Office (GIO). Frost & Sullivan estimates DHS spending on geospatial products and services to reach $x million by 2018.

CEO’s Perspective

Army requirements for geospatial products and services make it receptive to most current emerging technologies.
Joint service organizations are given more latitude for investment as their research and development efforts benefit all the military departments.
DHS’s 1 central office for geospatial management is fundamental to an efficient growth strategy.
Air Force development of new light detection and ranging (LIDAR) technology expected to expand mapping coverage in less time than current systems.

Market Definitions

•Market data for this research project is limited to unclassified information gathered through open source documents, therefore much of the geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) data is not included due to the sensitive nature of its contracts and programs.
•Defense geospatial market participants for this research are established as the entities within the DoD and DHS. DHS budget forecast will not be segmented as it is based on one program used to fund requirements for all its agencies.
•The geospatial market for this research service is defined as geographically referenced elements which contribute to the art of analysis, including imagery, LIDAR data, terrain data, mapping software, integration tools, and any other geo-referenced data that contributes to analysis.
•This research effort cites costs associated directly with the processing, exploitation, and dissemination (PED) of geospatial products and services. This research may also include some overlap spending on satellites, computer hardware, sensors, or collection platforms considered by the author to be relevant to the geospatial market.
•Forecast discussions will be limited to top programs for the total market and for each segment breakdown. Market share analysis will be handled similarly by limiting detailed discussion to top participants for the overall market and for each major segment identified.
•Competitive information is limited to data extracted from government contracts. Factors and assessments of individual companies are not supplied due to the large number of vendors within the geospatial market and the lack of performance data available.
•Spending data within this research refers to either government contracts awarded or budget forecast funding. In either case, exact company revenues received cannot be determined as some awards are spread out over several years.
