The global active sensor market was valued at $18.8 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $50.7 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 10.6% from 2022 to 2031.

A sensing device known as an active sensor merely detects and reacts to information from physical environment and needs an exterior energy supply to function. Active sensors can be used by artificial radiation emitted by radar and laser scanners to track surface or atmospheric phenomena. In contrast to radar altimeters and scatter meters, which are non-imaging devices, radars are essentially imaging devices.

An active sensor is a tool with a broadcaster that projects a signal, light wavelength, or electrons that bouncing off from an object. The sensors then collect information from the reflections of the sound wave, visual spectra, or particles. Active Sensors are used across various sectors such as military, defense, government, mining, oil & gas, and others for ensuring secured sensing device. Active sensors produce their inherent electromagnetic (EM) energy that they broadcast toward the ground and then pick up from the earth's reflection. The EM energy that was received has been used for assessment.An active sensor is a tool with a broadcaster that projects a signal, light wavelength, or electrons that bouncing off from an object.
