The World Market For Military Infrared Imaging Detectors And Systems (Vol. IRW-M, 2014 Edition)

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.

What's new in this report?

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
