Steadily, one can observe that, Drones are being used for several military purposes such as communication; combat, search, and rescue; destruction of enemy air defense; electronic attack; intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance; and suppression of enemy air defense operations.
It is also exciting to see that, vendors are focusing on the development of mini or small size drones that offer greater maneuverability and swiftness in operation, which in turn, is leading to the development of mini-laser designators.
According to Research and Markets, one of the major drivers for this market is increasing success rates of laser systems on field. Several countries have been collaborating with vendors and investing in the R&D of laser systems.
Among key vendors, we have BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, and Thales.
