Top 10 Defense Tech Consulting/Service Companies - 2020
Every year, military superpowers are increasing their defense budget, investing in more advanced technology and equipment. To keep pace with them, and maintain a semblance of countering capabilities, many other countries are following suit, balancing their budgets between maintaining their conventional assets, while also incorporating innovative, yet robust defense technology.
Notably, AI is getting embedded into military aircraft systems to bolster the predictive maintenance capabilities. AI is significantly improving the readiness of military equipment while also bringing in a new range of functionalities. For instance, with the F-35 line of aircraft rolling off the production lines, the US defense industry is already preparing for the next generation of high-tech stealth fighters, all powered by the autonomic logistics information system (ALIS), an advanced sustainment solution capable of turning any data into actionable information.
Needless to say, AI is at the forefront of the operation of autonomous flight systems and UAV swarm technology. With an increasing number of military departments investing in robust unmanned equipment, the new advancements are leading to AI-controlled UAVs being leveraged for swarm formations. In no time, pilots will utilize AI technology in their cockpits to control entire groups of advanced drones flanking their planes.
The defense industry is also trying to enhance its logistics footprint by switching to electric. Although the defense sector has resisted the wave of electrification taking the civilian landscape by storm, the governments are recognizing the strategic advantages of adding alternative ways of powering military operations. The defense industry is witnessing complete electrification of military vehicles, including tanks and trucks.
