Consolidating Technology Advances

This research service focuses on the US Department of Defense (DoD) command and control, communications, computers, intelligence, and surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) budget spending. Included is an analysis of research, development, testing, and evaluation (RDT&E), procurement, operations and maintenance (O&M), and services. Contract activity for the DoD C4ISR for 2012 is also included. The DoD C4ISR 2014 budget is comprised of the Army, Navy/Marine Corps, Air Force, and Joint Service spending plans and is included. This study indicates which technology products and services are emphasized in DoD C4ISR budget spending. The base year for financial spending is 2012, and the market forecast is from 2012 to 2018.

Key Findings

•The 2014 Department of Defense (DoD) programs for command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR); electronic warfare/information operations (EW/IO); and multipurpose technologies total $Xbillion.
•This is a decrease of $X billion, or X%, from 2013 levels.
•C4ISR funding through 2018 has a negative X% compound annual growth rate (CAGR). Mature technologies and proven services will be the focus of future spending.
•Research, development, test, and evaluation (RDT&E) is the largest spending category with $Xbillion requested for 2014 and a negativeX% CAGR through 2018.
•Joint Services have the largest share of funding at $X billion and a negative growth rate of X% through 2018.
•Surveillance and reconnaissance (S&R) is the largest technology segment at $Xbillion in 2014 with a negative X% CAGR through 2018.
•In 2012, the DoD awarded $X billion through X prime contracts to X companies. Lockheed Martin continued as the top C4ISR firm with $X billion in new prime contracts.
•The top X firms held X% of the contract value in 2012. Networks, a multipurpose category, is the largest technology area with $Xbillion and the most contracts, X.

CEO’s Perspective

1. Overall C4ISR spending will decrease due to force structure reductions. Modifications and product improvements will receive the most operational focus.
2. Spending for COTS*-based computing, networking, and collaboration tools will increase.
3. Repair, maintenance, training, and missile defense are priorities through 2018.
4. Defense industry consolidation and convergence with the IT, medical, oil and gas, and robotics fields will accelerate.
5. C4ISR products manufactured in Brazil, Turkey, Israel, India, Korea, and Japan will gain US market share.

Market Definitions

•This research service is an overview of program funding and contract activity for the DoD C4ISR activities. C4ISR provides situational awareness of the battlefield.
•Due to the close operational and technological relationship with C4ISR, EW/IO data is also included.
•EW/IO gains frequency spectrum and information systems dominance. Multipurpose is defined as contracts that utilize more than one C4ISR application area.
•The research service forecasts do not include classified programs and budgets. A substantial amount of the total C4ISR market information is not accessible to the public.
•Program funding is derived from the DoD 2014 budget request and includes designated portions of overseas contingency operations (OCO) funding.
•Contract data is based on the 2012 calendar year.
•C4ISR systems inherent in new-build tactical ground vehicles, ships, and aircraft platforms are included if distinctly specified by program, contract, or contract modification.
•Program funding and contract values do not always align year to year, due to a combination of administrative costs, multiyear contracts, and technology use across segments.
•Program and contract segmentation, with funding forecasts beyond 2014, are made at the analyst’s discretion.
