20 Most Promising Defense Technology Solution Providers - 2016

20 Most Promising Defense Technology Solution Providers - 2016

The global adoption of emerging technologies is transforming the businesses and the governments, and defense technology is no stranger to this change. In an era of connected soldiers, they can be kept informed and protected through the adoption of these leading-edge technologies. Areas that are critical to defense mission success such as safety, security, effectiveness, efficiency, and cost savings can also be improved. Every experience in the defense landscape is becoming digital as ordinary things are being converted into intelligent devices. But recently the defense industry has found itself in an increasingly challenging predicament.

Military spending globally has been under immense pressure, governments around the world have not yet adopted significant new weapons’ programs, and to add to this few are still left on the horizon. This has made the departments and ministries of defense shift some of their attention to vendors that aren’t part of the core defense industry, particularly technology firms that industry leaders believe can deliver products within shorter periods and with more agility compared to legacy A&D companies. In this way, defense departments are broadening their procurement activities away from pure-play defense vendor organizations.

To help navigate CIOs through the list of innovative vendors, our distinguished selection panel, comprising CEOs, CIOs, VCs, industry analysts and the editorial board of CIOReview has narrowed the final 20 Defense Technology Solution Providers that exhibit competence in delivering advanced analytics technology to fabricate a connected and immune defense mechanism.
