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.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
