The Internet of Battlefield Things (IoBT) will attach soldiers with smart digital technology in armor, weapons, and other objects, to abbreviate the latency of decision cycles, push tailored machine intelligence and improve the resiliency of tactical battlefield analytics when needed. The entire implementation of ubiquitous sensing, pervasive computing, and pervasive communication is known as the Internet of Battlefield Things (IoBT). It creates an incredible amount of information through networked sensors and processing devices.

Key Market Insights:

 The internet of battlefield things market will be experiencing a boost due to increased mandate for better communication and interface with the corporal environment in a more efficient and informed manner in military services. Technological advancements like RCWS, advanced turrets for smooth and efficient operation, and the higher budget allocation for the military and defense sector certainly boost the Internet of Battlefield Things (IOBT) market. As per U.S. Army’s C.E.O., Mr. Iyer said the Army’s I.T. and security budget request is USD 16.6 billion in 2023, the largest of all D.O.D. services.

The sensing and computing devices embedded with soldiers’ helmets, suits, and weapon systems in the battlefield collate static and dynamic data on locations of enemy formations, imminent threats, and the resources available, which can help military troops make more analytical decisions.

The key restraining factors for the IOBT market are the high installation cost of this equipment on any existing system or the introduction of new products in the military market due to a lack of skilled professionals. Also, there is a growing concern about cyber-attacks on I.O.T. devices. Hackers nowadays can control any I.O.T. device and manipulate any private data. For instance, in February 2021, U.S. District alleged three South Korean hackers for their wide range of hacking activities for revenge or financial gain.
