The growing need to modernize armed forces is what drives the market for military robots and military ground robot mobile platforms. Dependent on early
response and flexibility, unmanned remote-controlled or autonomous military robots are developed with the aim of overcoming the limitations of conventional
warfare for military or commercial use.
Military robots currently in use by countries across the globe include Elbit Hermes 450 (Israel), DRDO Daksh (India), IAIO Fotros (Iran), Samsung SGR-A1
(South Korea), Shahed 129 (Iran), PackBot (USA), Gladiator Tactical Unmanned Ground Vehicle (USA), Guardium (Israel), RQ-1 Predator (USA), MARCbot,
Goalkeeper CIWS (Netherlands), RQ-9 Predator B (USA), and TALON (USA).
Military Robots: From Science Fiction to Powerful Anti-Terrorism Tools
The Goliath tracked mine, a German-engineered remote controlled demolition vehicle employed in World War II by the Wehrmacht, and the teletank, a series of
remotely controlled unmanned tanks first used in combat at the start of WW II, are probably the first military robots to be successfully used in combat
operations. The secret ‘wonder weapons’ developed by the Germans or the MQB-1 Predator, which CIA officers thought was merely a “decade-old fantasy”,
turned out to be great technological achievements and the military robots market began to take form.
The idea of using robots in warfare has graduated from being a topic of science fiction to becoming a practical reality. Today, military robots are
actually affordable, flexible, and extremely effective in the fight against terrorism and other conflicts. Military robotic platform technology is an
upcoming area that is gaining the attention of government as well as private investors, with organizations such as the agricultural department, the Federal
Aviation Administration (FAA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) pitching in to boost the market for military robots.
The military robots market is presently dominated by players such as iRobot Kongsberg, BAE
Versa / Allen Vanguard, Telerob ReconRobotics, Qinetiq / Foster Miller Lockheed Martin, and General Dynamics Northrop Grumman / Romotec, who have
strengthened their military presence in an evolving global market. Other prominent participants of the worldwide market for military robots include Mesa
Robotics, Robosoft, TechnoRobot, Re2, Inc, Elbit Systems, Pedsco, Vecna Technologies, ICOR Technology, ECA Robotics, RoboteX, Pearson Engineering, Kairos
Autonami, G-NIUS, Thales Group, Boston Dynamics, and Telerob.
Adoption of Automated Processes Fuels Global Military Robots Market
The ability of a country to invade or capture neighboring nations, or conversely, to defend itself from incursions by other countries, depends entirely on
its military strength. Countries with a powerful military force are also more than capable of protecting their economic interests, both domestic and
foreign. Military robots are a means of intensifying military presence in a constantly evolving battle for power. The plethora of inherent advantages
provided by military robotic technology makes them an attractive and viable tool for governments all over the world to acquire.
The adoption of automated processes by military forces across the globe is the primary force driving the military robots market, and the implementation of
innovative software and robotic platforms is projected by analysts to drive the military robots market from a value of US$3.2 billion in 2014 to US$10.2
billion by 2021.
