Defense Market Opportunities for RF Technologies
Military expenditure faces challenges with declining budgets impacting the introduction of new platforms. However technology will be the differentiator and the opportunity for RF technologies remains strong as the focus shifts towards enhancing capabilities in areas such as radar, satellite communications and electronic warfare. This will be underpinned by operation across wider bandwidths and higher frequencies. The market for high power RF will grow at a CAGR of 9% through 2017, with a steady shift away from vacuum tube technology over the next five years and beyond as solid-state RF technologies such as GaN and SiC demonstrate the capabilities to meet future system requirements for high frequency, wide bandwidth and high power operation.
