The global airborne ISR market reached a value of US$ 25.7 Billion in 2020. Airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) systems help in finding and tracking friendly as well as hostile forces and assessing damage to hostile targets in an area of interest. They also assist in performing various security operations to enhance situational awareness for military personnel protection. These systems employ three different types of electronic sensors for capturing information which include electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) sensors, radar, and signals intelligence (SIGINT) systems. Nowadays, defense authorities are expending on airborne ISR systems in order to improve national security and acquire data from potential enemies.

Global Airborne ISR Market Drivers:
In comparison with manned ISR aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are smaller, more reliable and cost-effective. They are also equipped with a range of systems like an engine, autopilot, airframe, sensor package, navigation system and a communication link, and onboard sensors such as GPS, LASER, SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) and IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit). As a result, the demand for UAVs is being propelled around the world which, in turn, is driving the growth of the airborne ISR market. Moreover, on account of economic prosperity, growing threats of terror attacks, and increasing political and religious clashes, several countries worldwide are focusing on enhancing their warfare capabilities. This assists in averting enemy trespasses and helps in gathering information about their strengths and movements. Looking forward, the analyst expects the global airborne ISR market to reach a value of US$ 34.20 Billion by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.90% during 2021-2026.
