Active protection system is generally used for military application and is a kind of system that is designed to avert line of sight leading anti tank missiles from destroying a target. One of the major active protection system used in defence to destroy and intercept incoming rockets and missiles is Trophy (A SPRO-A). Active protection system (APS) is considered as advanced defense system of any military sector. This system is capable of interrupting and shooting down threats such as anti-tank missiles and rocket propelled grenades. The active protection technology uses radar and sensors, fire control technology, computer processing, target and knock down and ATGMs or Anti Tank Guided Missiles. However, around the globe technological progress of missiles, RPGs and enemy tank is leading the way to bring development in the active protection system technology. Among others the active protection system also offers protection from threats in several mission applications such as combat vehicles, ships and others. These are the major factors that supported the growth of the active protection system market during the forecast period.
Active protection system offer wide range of benefits in the military sector. These benefits may include destroying and interrupting-tank missiles. The abram tanks are the most efficient tanks in use of the active protection system. These tanks carry reactive armor and material that is used to eliminate any incoming combat attacks to protect the crew of the vehicle that acts as an additional protection layer in the battlefield. These factors in turn are expected to enhance the market growth of active protection system over the projection period.
The active protection system market in report is segmented by end user that includes defense and homeland security. Active protection system is also segmented by platform which is segregated into land-based, airborne and naval. The land-based segment is further segmented as armored personel carrier (APC), light protected vehicles (LPV), main battle tank (MBT), infantry fighting vehicles( IFV), mine-resistant ambush protected (MRAP), and amphibious armored vehicle (AAV). Airborne segment is further sub-segmented into fighter aircraft, special mission aircraft, helicopters and others. Naval segment is further segmented into frigates, aircraft carriers, destroyers, submarine and others. Moreover on the basis of system type the active protection system market is segmented as electro-optics jammers, radar decoy, directed energy, infrared decoy, missile/rocket based and light weapon defense. The global active protection system market has been moreover segmented geographically into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Latin America.
Active protection system technology is expected to grow at a high rate with the increase in military vehicles across the globe. APS will be one of the major trends to gain traction in this market in the upcoming years. APS are widely used in military fields for different application needs. In developing countries, the rapid increasing demand for modern combat vehicles is also augmenting the demand of active protection system.
Some of the major players in the active protection system market are Aselsan A.S., Airbus Group, Raytheon Company, KBM Group LLC, Rafael Advanced Defense Systems ltd., Safran Electronics & Defense and Navistar International Corporation.
