Traditional airborne ISR accounts for $11.3 billion, or 1.7 percent, of the total 2012 DoD budget. ISR companies have recently benefited from the ground wars and nation-building activities in Middle Eastern countries, where there is a constant need for responsive and persistent ISR. “Even the current troop withdrawal from Iraq may not significantly reduce the ISR mission because military and political leaders recognize the deterrent effect of ISR platforms, which are mainly unmanned,” says a senior Frost and Sullivan military analyst. “Ultimately, the greatest growth opportunities will present themselves in the form of increasing ISR-sensor capabilities and size, weight, and power (SWaP) efficiencies as well as expanding the multirole mission and survivability of unmanned platforms,” notes the analyst. Another analyst has determined that “the value of the global electro optical infrared (EO/IR) systems market in 2013 will exceed $8 Billion”. As unmanned aerial systems (UASs) become more capable and undertake additional missions simultaneously, the amount of information flow from the sensors across the communications channels and data links will increase exponentially. Technical challenges will arise when marrying SWaP requirements, as well as frequency bands, because both affect the range and bandwidth capabilities of communications between ISR platforms and end users.
