Market of military GPS/GNSS-technology: prospects for the next 10 years
Online library of market research Reportstack announced a new report titled "The global market for military GPS/GNSS-technology 2013-2023." The report provides a detailed analysis of the global market of military GPS/GNSS-technology with a vision for the next ten years.
In this report, there are several major units. Firstly, it is a satellite navigation system that provides GPS-positioning around the world, and therefore it is very most important for modern military operations, which for precise attacks require accurate information on enemy troops. The main role here play GPS/GNSS-devices required for the transmission of signals from the satellites to Earth.
According to the report, the United States spends at GPS/GNSS-navigation more than any country in the world, occupying 42.9% of the global GNSS-devices. It is followed by Russia, Britain, China and India. In July, India launched IRNSS-1A, the first of seven satellites Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System IRNSS, which is scheduled for 2015-2016. Chinese Beidou system will go back online by 2020.
Another factor in the development of this market segment is the integration of satellite navigation technologies with other navigation systems such as inertial navigation systems (INS) and gyroscopes. With such combination GPS-device can be used to decrypt the data very precisely.
Finally, the emergence of a system of differential GPS (DGPS), will improve the accuracy of GPS with nominal 15 meters to about 10 cm, provided the impetus for the use of GPS in missile technology. In intercontinental ballistic missiles, which strike at targets located at a distance of several thousand kilometers, using inertial navigation solutions paired with DGPS-receivers. In addition, the emergence of DGPS is one of the key factors in the development of high-precision missile targeting in different regions.Digital cartography and GPS navigation 27-10-2014
