Military Robots Market: Global Industry Analysis and Forecast (2021-2027)

The Military Robots Market is expected to reach US $29.62 billion by 2027, thanks to growth in the land robots segment. The report analyses military robots market dynamics by region, platform, application, and end-user.

Military Robots Market Overview:

The Military Robots Market was valued at US $14.51 Bn. in 2020, and it is expected to reach US $29.62 Bn. by 2027 with a CAGR of 10.73% during the forecast period. Military robots are autonomous or remote-controlled mobile robots that are used in military applications such as transport, search and rescue, and attack. The increased use of robots in areas afflicted by chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) assaults, the increased use of robots for mine countermeasures, and the increased usage of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in life-threatening missions are the factors that are all driving this market. The market, however, is constrained by high operational costs and robot reliability. Manufacturers have many options for developing completely autonomous robots capable of performing specified tasks and dangerous missions. However, obstacles like the requirement for constant power and a limited range must be solved.

Global Military Robots Market Dynamics:

• Surging adoption of robots in areas affected by biological, chemical, radiological, and nuclear attacks: In unknown and severe conditions, robots can be useful. They are particularly effective in nuclear, biological, and chemical warfare scenarios since they can undertake inspection and surveillance duties in minutes. For example, Japan suffered devastating effects as a result of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in 2011. As a result, robots were deployed to clear debris leftover from the nuclear meltdown, control the spread of radioactivity, and shut down the nuclear reactor. As the areas surrounding the facility were exceedingly hazardous for people, various PackBot robots were employed to gather photographs of the impacted areas to examine the disaster's aftermath. Robots were deployed in affected locations, allowing for fast checks outside the line of sight.

Types of robots that were used are as follows:

• Robots that can take pictures of the impacted areas. • Firefighting water cannons that are self-contained. • Heavy construction robots for the demolition of radiation-affected structures. • Robots for removing rubble. • Reliability of UAVs: Electronic jamming and electronic warfare are very dangerous to UAVs. Also, most UAVs are not appropriate for long-range operations because of their restricted range. They are not particularly reliable for vital activities because they can malfunction owing to weather conditions. UAVs, for example, could be damaged in a high-wind area or during rainfall, and so fail to provide the necessary data. The parts could overheat and malfunction in a desert. Unreliable UAVs are caused by a variety of factors, including hardware and software failures. • UGVs that are completely autonomous are being developed: Around the world, fully autonomous UGVs with artificial intelligence and the ability to carry out operations with minimal human interaction is being developed. Defense forces are likely to improve their fighting capabilities by using these robots. Also, research and development operations are underway to build autonomous armed ground systems to safeguard the safety of defense troops on battlefields. For example, the US Army's Tank Automotive Research Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC) is developing a 30-year ground vehicle strategy to design, produce, and deploy scalable autonomous ground vehicles to serve the country's military forces. TARDEC is examining a variety of use cases for autonomous vehicle development, including unmanned tanks that can undertake screening missions and unmanned helicopters that can carry unmanned ground vehicles in hazardous locations. • Malfunction in hardware and software: Hardware and software failures afflict robots. Even though they are intended and engineered to withstand extreme conditions, they continue to face unknown problems. Extreme temperatures, component failures, and software bottlenecks are just some of the issues that can arise. Human operators can control UGVs via tethered or remote-control modes. Human operators may lose control of these robots in some situations, or robots may miscalculate directives, resulting in mission failures. Engineers confront difficulties in developing completely autonomous robots because the technology is still in its early stages. List of advanced military robots across the globe: 1. AVATAR III Robotex's AVATAR III is a tactical robot. It can be employed by military SWAT teams to keep human soldiers safe while performing operations. The robot improves law enforcement and first-responder capabilities by allowing them to assess dangerous situations safely and promptly. The AVATAR III is fully configurable, with plug-and-play payload bays that allow users to tailor the robot to their own requirements. 2. DOGO DOGO is a tactical combat robot with a 9mm Glock handgun that was designed to serve as a watchdog for soldiers in the field. This robot, created by General Robotics, is the terrestrial version of the ubiquitous combat drone. The most intriguing aspect about DOGO is that it weighs only 26 pounds and can be carried by a fully armed commando in one hand. DOGO, according to reports, was created with the help of the Israeli police's counter-terrorist section and the Defense Ministry's research and development directorate to combat terrorism. 3. RiSE RiSE is an insect-like climbing robot from Boston Robotics that employs micro-clawed feet to nimbly scale rough surfaces like walls, fences, and trees. Boston Dynamics, Inc., Stanford University, Carnegie Mellon University, U.C. Berkeley, and Lewis & Clark University collaborated on the project. The RiSE project's purpose is to develop a bioinspired climbing robot that can walk on land as well as climb vertical terrain. The DARPA Biodynamics Program is funding this initiative. 4. SAFFiR SAFFiR (Shipboard Autonomous Firefighting Robot) is a military robot that is 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs 143 pounds. The robot was created by Virginia Tech academics and is designed to put out fires on naval ships. SAFFiR can't stand without a tether, but it can take slow, deliberate steps and handle a fire hose. Its one-of-a-kind system gives it a superhuman range of motion, allowing it to manoeuvre in tight spaces. SAFFiR's ultimate purpose is to operate with Navy officers rather than replace them. 5. MUTT MUTT (Multi-Utility Tactical Transport) is an unmanned ground vehicle that is available in two versions: wheeled and tracked. The fighters are accompanied by MUTT, which makes travel easier by reducing the amount of equipment they must carry when traversing rough terrain on foot. This self-driving military vehicle is available in three sizes: tracked, 6x6, and 8x8. The 808 MUTT has a length of 112 inches and a width of 60 inches, and it can carry up to 1,200 pounds. It has a power output of up to 3,000 watts and can drive up to 60 miles on a single tank of gas. 6. Guardbot Guardbot is a surveillance robot that can move on any terrain, including snow, sand, and dirt. This surveillance robot is capable of swimming as well as moving on any terrain. Guardbot is equipped with two surveillance cameras, a battery that can last for 25 hours, microphones, and GPS, allowing it to be operated remotely as well as via satellites. It was originally planned for trips to Mars. Its smaller version can be used at security checkpoints to search underneath vehicles. 7. Gladiator The Gladiator Tactical Unmanned Ground Vehicle is designed to assist the Marine Corps in the execution of Ship to Objective Manoeuvre (STOM). It employs a small-to-medium-sized mobile robotic device to reduce risk and minimise hazards to Marines in a variety of situations. Although it seems to be a little tank, its basic configuration allows it to execute scout/surveillance, NBC reconnaissance, direct fire, and people obstacle breaching operations. Using existing image intensification or thermal devices, Gladiator can provide day/night remote visual acuity comparable to that of a single Marine.
