Military and Law Enforcement Agencies Create New Billion-Dollar Markets as They Focus On UAS and Robots To Save Lives and Trim Costs Source

FARMINGTON, Conn., May 24, 2012  As military, law enforcement, and first responder agencies around the globe seek to reduce the physical danger their personnel face, more research and development is being focused on UAV and robot design and training. Global Information Inc is pleased to announce the immediate availability of two new reports detailing this trend within Homeland Security and Law Enforcement, exploring the new billion-dollar markets this trend will create:

The UAV Flight Training & Simulation Market 2012-2022

The value of the global UAV flight training and simulation market in 2012 will reach $451.9m, according to a new Visiongain market research report on the UAV Flight Training & Simulation Market, 2012-2022. Training and simulation represents $13.73 Billion in spending by the US’ Department of Defense budget in 2012, roughly 2 percent the DoD’s total budget, and UAV training is a not-insignificant part of that budget.

The proliferation of UAVs, and their utility on the modern battlefield, will see demand for the vital services they offer continue into the next decade. This demand will be accompanied by a requirement for more skilled UAV pilots and sensor operators, and as UAV operator training becomes more formalized, governments will be looking to invest heavily in the creation of suitable UAV operator simulation and training systems.

The report explains developing trends within the UAV flight training and simulation market and provides forecasts for the global UAV flight training and simulation market between 2012 and 2022.

First Responder, Border Patrol, Homeland Security, Law Enforcement, and Security Robots: Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2012 to 2018

Globally, first responder-type robot markets are poised to achieve significant growth as the next generation robots systems provide a way to improve law enforcement services delivery in the communities of the world, according to new a military, law enforcement, and first responder robots market research report from Wintergreen Research.

Homeland security and police need to target terrorists and protect civilians in order to get their job done effectively, but this needs to be balanced by putting as few of their own personnel in harms way as possible. Robots help in this task by sending machines instead of Homeland security and police into dangerous places.

First Responder Type Robot markets, valued at $440.4 million in 2011, are anticipated to reach $1.6 billion by 2018 as next generation robots are introduced to manage situational response to community threats.
