tablet, soldier, c4isrTechnavio has released a new report that estimates the airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance market's worldwide compound annual growth rate at 3 percent from 2015 through 2019.

The market will see a rise in demand for stealth ISR aircraft during the forecast period, buoyed by investment in ISR payloads, Technavio said Thursday.

“Most of the conventional aircrafts have a rounded shape, which makes them aerodynamic but also an efficient radar reflector,“ said Faisal Ghaus, vice president of Technavio.

“Whereas stealth aircraft is made up of flat surfaces and sharp edges that either [absorb] the radar energy or reflect it away from the source and airplane,“ which permits it to fly undetected, added Ghaus.

Technavio cites complex data sets and a dwindling defense budget as major challenges to the market.

BAE Systems, L-3 Communications, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and UTC Aerospace Systems are among tier-one market players profiled in the report.
