World Unmanned Ground Vehicle Market to see 30% CAGR to 2019

DALLAS, TX -- The Global Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) Market 2015-2019 research report draws attention towards the increased use of long-wave infrared radiation (LWIR) uncooled cameras in the market.

Autonomous navigation is a significant requirement for the operation of an unmanned ground vehicle, which is actually developed for both military and commercial purposes to perform tasks in difficult situations. Currently, LWIR cameras are the most innovative thermal imaging devices available on the market that use uncooled microbolometers to produce high-quality thermal images both during day and night. This unmanned ground vehicle market research emphasizes the growing inclination towards autonomous UGVs, as defense departments' focus on improvements to the technology. The changing nature of military engagements and increased use of reconnaissance collected from tele-operated and semi-autonomous UGVs are driving the market to manufacture and deploy autonomous vehicles.

To calculate the unmanned ground vehicle market size, the report considers revenue generated globally in the market from the sale of UGVs. In this report, the market is segmented based on Technology (tele-operated, autonomous, and semi-autonomous), End-users (defense industry and commercial sector) and Geography (the Americas, the EMEA region, and the APAC region).

Companies like Cobham, General Dynamics, iRobot, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, QinetiQ Group, AB Precision (Poole), Applied Geo Technologies, Aselsan A.S, BAE Systems, Dok-Ing, ECA Group, G-NIUS Unmanned Ground Systems, MacroUSA, Nexter Group, O.D.F Optronics, Oshkosh Defense, Oto Melara, RE2, ReconRobotics, Roboteam, RUAG Defense and Singapore Technologies Engineering are mentioned in this UGV market research available for purchase at .

UGVs are vehicles that operate in contact with the ground with or without human intervention. The main application of an unmanned ground vehicle is in the Defense sector. UGVs have sensors to observe the environment and the terrain in order to either navigate autonomously or as per the instructions of a human operator. UGVs are used to examine the ground, to supply ammunition to soldiers during combat, to carry out rescue operations during disasters, and to detect explosives and to detonate them.

One of the major challenges the unmanned ground vehicle market faces is the energy limit in terms of both, supply (power to the parts such as radars or communication links) and durability of batteries. UGVs face payload problems combined with limited space, thus affecting the power supply of the batteries. This in turn affects their operational range by hampering the supply of onboard available energy. The problem is further aggravated by the addition of more sensors to support the diverse applications such as waypoint navigation, path tracking, bomb disposal and diffusion and mine detection.

The report includes an analysis of the vendor landscape of this market and all its key players.

February 2015: Oshkosh Defense showcases its TerraMax UGV technology at Future Defense Summit Unmanned Systems Conference lunch during IDEX 2015.

February 2015: Engineers at Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division designs new version of SRTGT system.

October 2014: QinetiQ introduced TALON V at 2014 AUSA Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.

August 2014: Lockheed Martin in collaboration with US Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center, conducted autonomous reconnaissance, surveillance and target-acquisition, and resupply demonstration using its Gyrocam optical sensor, SMSS UGV, and K-MAX unmanned helicopter.
