New Market Research on the World Market for Military Infrared Imaging Detectors and Systems (Vol. IRW-M) by Maxtech International, Inc.

SARASOTA, Fla., Jan. 22, 2018 — (PRNewswire) —  Maxtech International, Inc. is releasing the 2018 edition of its market research report on military infrared detectors and systems markets (Vol. IRW-M).

Military infrared imaging systems are at a turning point. Upgrades to legacy systems have been delayed due to budgetary pressures. Now, advanced new infrared detector technologies are becoming available that could transform the landscape and drive the military infrared imaging market to $11 billion by 2022.

Some of the important trends that will start to shape advanced military infrared systems include:

  • Uncooled systems for Manportable use with increasing performance based on large-format, small pixel Wafer-Level-Packaged (WLP) Focal Plane Arrays (FPAs) many of which are fabricated at commercial fabs that also fab low-end commercial FPAs.
  • Increasing competition in uncooled which has resulted in some companies withdrawing from certain market segments
  • 3rd Gen dual-band cooled systems – a long delayed technology which is now in programmatic development in the U.S., followed by other countries. The technology will provide armored vehicles with unprecedented range for precision strike.
  • The emergence of Type 2 Superlattice (T2SL) detectors which have the potential to replace incumbent MCT and InSb technologies.
  • High Operating Temperature (HOT) cooled T2SL detectors and systems which are expected to be incorporated into major new Programs of Record over the next five years – including the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
  • SWIR detector (mainly InGaAs) growth in the double digits
  • Digital-pixel readouts (DROICs) that will bring a new level of performance to all types of infrared detectors.

Geographically, the U.S. continues to be the dominant supplier of military infrared systems. However, Europe, Israel and China also have a sizable presence. Countries in the Middle East, Asia and elsewhere are increasing their purchases of these systems.
