Earth Observation: Defense & Security assesses from an economic and political perspective the EO industry focus on defense and security. This is inclusive of national government supply and demand, and commercial solutions being developed to meet some of these requirements - both in manufacturing and in commercial data supply.

Highlights from the report:

The number of countries expected to launch proprietary EO defense capacity is expected to remain limited, despite increases in global tensions. Under exploration by multiple countries are other avenues to receive data capable of image intelligence (IMINT) applications, such as dual-use and commercial approaches.

Only six countries launched dedicated EO defense capacity over 2006-2015; this number is not expected to differ greatly moving into the next decade. Only a few new entrants are expected, as the high costs and technical know-how to develop and maintain capacity capable of submetric/high geolocation accuracy imaging is an inhibiting factor. A further four countries launched dual-use satellites (implying mixed defense & civil financing & usage), spreading the costs across multiple government departments. Several dual-use systems are expected to be launched over the next decade, such as in Peru, Morocco and Spain; in total, 80 defense/dual-use satellites (discounting U.S. classified programs) are expected to be launched over 2016-2025, a marginal increase over that of the previous decade.

Defense is by far the first destination for commercial EO data, totalling over $1 billion in data sales in 2015, nearly three-quarters of the data being from ≤1m ground resolution systems, such as from DigitalGlobe and Airbus Defence and Space. The U.S. NGA remains the single largest procurer of imagery to support defense applications, however non-U.S. markets remain a key growth driver across the commercial data market as a whole. By 2025 it is expected that commercial defense data sales will top $2 billion (7% CAGR). Asia and Latin America in particular are witnessing a strong uptake in the procurement of commercial data, facilitated by direct access solutions provided by the commercial operators and driven by heightened regional unrest.
