Soldier modernization encompasses equipment from a range of different market segments with diverse applications in the field

LONDON, May 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Considering the growing concerns over armed conflict between peer-level adversaries in an increasingly networked and unconventional battlespace, militaries worldwide are increasingly focusing on enhancing the operational efficiency of the individual soldier. Due to the proliferation of previously niche technological capabilities such as commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) drones and night vision goggles (NVGs), combat zones and the diminishing technological gap between major geopolitical adversaries, commanders at both the tactical and strategic levels have placed greater emphasis on enhancing the capabilities of the individual soldier within the context of multi-domain operations (MDO). Key players in the soldier modernization market possess a range of different technical specializations, including firearms, clothing & PPE, ISR systems, C4I systems, and power management solutions, among others.

The Soldier Modernization – Thematic Research Report offered by GlobalData Plc provides an overview of the soldier modernization market, outlines advances in technology and key programs, and provides insight into current procurement and research trends.

Soldier Modernization Value Chain

  • Clothing & Personal Protective Equipment

  • Firearms & Weapons Systems

  • C4I Systems

  • Soldier ISR

  • Unmanned Systems

  • Energy Supply & Management Systems

One of the primary value chains in the field of soldier modernization revolves around the provision of clothing and personal protective equipment that is designed to enhance survivability and agility. In recent years, certain products and technologies have contributed to situational awareness and sustainability as well. Soldier survivability is heavily dependent on signature management, protection from physical injuries, and protection from environmental factors during military operations. Signature management is achieved through a combination of visible light and IR spectrum camouflage, allowing soldiers to prevent their silhouettes and body heat from being detected by hostile forces or thermal imaging systems.
