Introduction to Aerospace and Defense Telemetry
Telemetry is a mechanized mode of communication which is generally used for measuring the data received from remote, inaccessible points. It allows the remote measurement and reporting of data and information. This can be done through wired mode (telephone networks, optical links) or wireless mechanisms (radio, ultrasonic and infrared waves). In aerospace and defense sector, telemetry is defined as the communication of information from space (space crafts, satellites) or defense systems to control stations on Earth or remote space vehicles having receiving and transmitting systems.
Aerospace and defense applications are sometimes custom designed around rotating machinery measurements for specific needs. Temperature, pressure, strain, vibration can be transferred to the shaft with the use of single or multi-channel digital wireless methods.
Market Size and Forecast
The aerospace and defense R&D and production activities have grown rapidly in the recent times. The civil, commercial and military activities related organizations are developing and designing control systems for the aerospace sector, test launch control systems, communication systems, and satellite components. All these R&D activities have supported the growth of the aerospace industry and telemetry market and telemetry is an important part in the aerospace and defense industry. Furthermore, with growth in the aerospace R&D activities, there has been a growth in the telemetry usage and integration in aerospace application. Additionally, there has been growth in the R&D activities for telemetry parameters in UAVs. They contain various sensors and utilize the telemetry systems to transmit raw data from sensors and for processing other diagnostics data.
The global aerospace and defense telemetry market is estimated to surpass USD 17.5 Billion by 2027. The market is anticipated to record a CAGR of around 4.8% over the forecast period i.e. 2019-2027. The market is segmented by type, equipment & application. By type, the market is bifurcated into radio and satellite, out of which, the satellite segment is anticipated to have significant growth on account of increase in the use of smart weapons and unmanned aerial vehicles. Satellite telemetry is useful for commercial and military flight test missions. These systems help in monitoring the data that is collected from onboard instrumentation over an RF link. Moreover, missions such as the launch of 104 satellites in a single rocket by ISRO, is anticipated to boost the market growth during the forecast period.
