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?

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense.

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
