Military Identification Friend or Foe Market Outlook 2030 -

An identification friend or foe (IFF) system is a radar-based system that uses an interrogation signal and sends a response to identify the broadcaster. The civil and military air traffic control systems can use an identification friend or foe system to identify aircraft, vehicles, or forces as friendly and determine their bearing and range from the interrogator. As security threats escalate, countries are compelled to protect their territories from potential adversaries at any cost, which has increased the emphasis on enhancing their defense capabilities. The rise in instances of asymmetric warfare and the emphasis on developing advanced warfare systems are the main drivers for the market. The market is expected to grow, primarily due to the increase in defense expenditures which facilitate both procurement and R&D in newer technologies. However, this growth is subjective to several associative factors, such as funding allocation, which can be negatively impacted by the anticipated onset of an economic downturn and various technical factors which may eventually lead to program delays and cancellations.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The impact of the COVID-19 on the military identification friend or foe market is unpredictable and is expected to remain in force till the second quarter of 2021. The COVID-19 outbreak compelled the governments across the globe to implement strict lockdowns and made social distancing mandatory. Consequently, several organizations began work from home programs as safety measures. Moreover, the nationwide lockdown led the military identification friend or foe system manufacturers to partially or completely shut their operations. The adverse impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have caused global delays in the activities and initiatives regarding the development of innovative military identification friend or foe systems.

Top Impacting Factors

  • Network-centric warfare techniques, rise in adoption of IoT, machine learning & AI, and integration of the satellite-based system with military identification friend or foe systems drive the market growth.
  • Network failure and cyber-attacks are expected to hamper the market growth.
  • Innovation & upgradation of military forces and integration of electronic warfare in military identification friend or foe system can be seen as a market investments opportunity.

The Military Identification Friend or Foe Market Trends Are as Follows:

Network Centric Warfare Techniques

Aside from compressing the time dimension, the information age reduces the importance of distance, resulting in significant reduction in the cycle time of information gathering, analysis, and decision- making. The U.S. military developed network-centric warfare in the 1990s which required comprehensive integration of sensors, communication networks, command centers, and associated platforms to achieve complete situational awareness and perfect synchronization between sensors and responders in a fast-paced mobile environment. Although gathering information improves intelligence, it must also aid in understanding and decision making. The focus of network-centric warfare (NCW) is the incorporation of the minimum information that must be exchanged, as well as effective methods to capture that information and best portray it as actionable intelligence. Thales proposes a wide range of identification friend or foe (IFF) products through its blueGate family solutions that are fully compliant with the latest standards, such as Mode 5 Stanag 4193 ed 3 and mode S Amendment 85, and addresses all identification friend or foe needs, including air defense systems. The Centre for Airborne Systems (CABS) has also released an indigenous version of identification friend or foe systems for the Indian Armed Forces. The release of such advanced systems may subsequently drive the global adoption of identification friend or foe systems, thereby, driving the market growth during the forecast period.

Innovation & Upgradation of Military Forces

The United States and Canada are currently focusing on upgrading their existing military fleets and their corresponding capabilities. The U.S. defense budget for FY 2020 prioritizes the military systems modernization to compete with China and Russia globally while emphasizing day-to-day operations for ongoing conflicts, crisis response, and allied engagement. According to the provisions of the 2020 defense budget, the defense contractors are anticipated to pursue the production of existing identification friend or foe systems while conducting extensive R&D for future systems. The U.S. National Security Agency, Joint Chiefs of Staff, and North Atlantic Treaty Organization must replace existing Mode 4 identification friend or foe systems with Mode 5 systems by June 2020. Mode 5 identification friend or foe systems improve signaling waveforms and enable pilots to use a secure, encrypted code to interrogate aircraft identification friend or foe systems friendly at longer ranges. Raytheon plans to implement Mode 5 standards on its aircraft offerings. It’s AN/APX-114 identification friend or foe interrogator was selected to be integrated onboard the Boeing F-15 modernization program of the U.S. Air Force. Thus, driving the market growth.
