FAIRFIELD, Conn., Jan. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxtech International, Inc. is releasing the 2014 edition of its market research report on military infrared detectors and systems markets (Vol. IRW-M).
Military budgets worldwide continue to be under pressure - especially in the U.S. and Europe where budget deficits are forcing reductions in military expenditures. In addition, in the U.S., the drawdown in forces from Afghanistan and the timing of procurements in certain infrared programs (such as 2nd Gen cooled and some uncooled sights) is resulting in a temporary slowdown.
Nonetheless, infrared imaging/night vision technology provides such a powerful force multiplier that it continues as an essential part of military systems. Several trends are expected to help grow the military infrared imaging market over the next five years:
- Uncooled detectors on a chip (in which the sensor is wafer-level-packaged and integrated with a single chip ASIC and low-cost optics). These developments will partly be driven by new thermal imaging smartphone attachments.
- High-end dual-band systems (3rd Gen) – a technology that has been delayed for several years but may now be on the path to procurement
- Moves to High Operating Temperature (HOT) cooled detectors and systems
- Growth in SWIR systems
At the same time, military infrared continues to grow rapidly in parts of Asia (India and China) and the Middle East. Uncooled detectors made in China are now starting to be built into Chinese military sights.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
