Infrared Search And Track (IRST) Systems Market By Platform (Airborne, Naval, Land), By End-Use (Defense, Civil) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2017 – 2025

Infrared search and track (IRST) or infrared sighting and tracking is a method of passive tracking with the help of infrared radiation. There are various types of electromagnetic radiations which include infrared radiation, radio waves, ultraviolet radiation, X-rays and microwaves. Humans are not capable of perceiving such infrared radiation with naked eyes. However, the radiation can be made visible to the eyes with the help of sensors and appropriate devices such as infrared cameras and detectors. The technology is capable of detecting infrared radiation emitted from bodies of any living beings or non-living objects. The systems are extensively used in defense applications in security and surveillance through passive searching and tracking.

Continued technological advancements in infrared sensing systems have upgraded the capabilities of present infrared search and track (IRST) systems. Use of highly accurate sensors, state-of-the-art image processing, and advanced display systems have led to the rise of effective and efficient infrared search and track (IRST) systems in the recent years. The infrared search and track (IRST) systems are able to search and track an object in adverse conditions such as bad weather, pitch-black darkness and in under water settings. Owing to the aforementioned merits, the demand for IRST systems has escalated significantly and expected to grow even further in the following years. The infrared search and track (IRST) systems can be mounted on the different platforms such as airborne, naval or any land vehicle or infrastructure. IRST systems offer higher efficiency in passive surveillance as compared to other technologies as RADAR and SONAR. The systems are extensively used in military aircrafts and jets aiding in identifying approaching aircrafts, missiles, and projectiles. Consequently, infrared search and track (IRST) systems have become an integral part of the modern defense equipment and the market is expected to rise significantly during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025.
