Top 20 Defense Technology Companies - 2018

National security agencies and Ministry of Defense are governed by a mission to synchronize with the new technology trends and optimize the same to secure nation boundaries. In today’s dynamic technology playfield, which is often shuddered by cyber attacks, defense organizations must always stay ahead of contriving miscreants that pose a threat to national security. In doing so, readiness and incorporation of new technologies are the major focus areas for this year. While there is a push towards utilization of technology in the defense sector with a flurry of innovations such as UAV systems, secured computer networks storing crucial information, and many others, numerous projects are undertaken to fend off security breaches. These efforts include preparing thorough contingency plans, hiring the right resources, and indulging in public-private partnerships (PPP) to attract more innovations.

From the technology viewpoint, artificial intelligence, virtual/augmented reality, IoT, cloud computing, and process robotics are likely to create greater impact in the defense ecosystem. Cumulatively, these technologies have the ability to speed up data analysis and processing, thereby facilitating quick and informed decision making. The first wave of this technical prowess is expected to revamp the transactional, financial, and other administrative tasks. While VR/AR can be extremely useful in training the workforces, machine learning and artificial intelligence can augment the efficiency of mission processes.

As the future for defense sector looks deeply entwined with technology, it is imperative that organizations invest in the right provider that not just suit their specific needs but also understand the dynamics of the tech world.
