Manned-Unmanned Teaming (MUM-T) Market Size, Share and Russia-Ukraine War Impact Analysis, By Platform (Land-domain, Air-domain, and Maritime-domain), By Interoperability (Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Level 4, and Level 5), By Application (Search and Rescue, Maritime Surveillance, Border Protection, and Others), and Regional Forecast, 2024-2032

Region :Global | Report ID: FBI108397 | Status : Ongoing



The Manned-Unmanned Teaming (MUM-T) concept describes the tactical interaction between people and uninhabited vehicles to accomplish mission goals and tasks all three domains-land, sea, and air-can use Manned-Unmanned teaming technology. The crewed aircraft will use intelligent, modular, networked, and interconnected unmanned systems as force multipliers, improving the team’s capabilities and keeping the pilot safe while still in control.

Key Market Insights:

Advancements in sensors and remote sensing technology, such as high-fidelity sensors, electro-optical sensor integration, and threat detection by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) or drones, drive the manned-unmanned teaming market. This MUM-T concept reshapes aircraft development strategies and revolutionizes future warfare concepts. As future warfare is bending towards unmanned combat, the manned-unmanned teaming image has massive scope for growth. For instance, the U.S. has conducted 13 drone strikes on Somalia since Mid-August of 2022, leading to nearly 72 death tolls, and there have been 252 drone and air strikes in Somalia by the U.S. since 2014.

Interoperability, rapid connectivity, and high-speed wireless communication are also the driving factors of the Manned-Unmanned Teaming market. For instance, in September 2022, Boeing’s MUM-T demonstration included three naval aircraft tasking four virtual, autonomous MQ-25S to conduct intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) missions. There a simulated F/A-18 Super Hornet interacted with a simulated MQ-25. The other aircraft tasking MQ-25s in the demo included Northrop Grumman’s E-2D Advanced Hawkeye command and control aircraft and Boeing’s P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol and reconnaissance aircraft.

The significant challenges for the Manned-Unmanned Teaming (MUM-T) market are fully automated processes, safety standards, and situational awareness management. Also, task saturation and effective use of workload become a severe problem for pilots in manned aircraft when integrating with unmanned vehicles. Moreover, evolving cyber threats for the military and autonomous system is a growing concern for the manned and unmanned teaming market.

Impact of Russia- Ukraine War on the Manned-Unmanned Teaming (MUM-T) Market:

The ongoing conflict of the Russia-Ukraine war has positively impacted the Manned-Unmanned Teaming (MUM-T) Market. Other ideas for the high-tech warfare that Russia envisioned during the war include manned-unmanned and autonomous ground vehicles (UGVs) that collaborate with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and various unmanned maritime systems with ships and other manned and unmanned assets.

The Manned-Unmanned Teaming (MUM-T) Market is segmented into three types. By Platform, it is segmented into land-domain, air-domain, and maritime-domain. Based on the Interoperability domain, the market is divided into Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Level 4, and Level 5. Based on application, this market is fragmented into search and rescue, maritime surveillance, border protection, and others. From a geographical view, the market is categorized into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Rest of the World.

Regional Analysis:

To gain extensive insights into the market, Request for Customization

The European region holds the maximum developed Manned-Unmanned Teaming (MUM-T) Market due to the presence of top players in Europe. The European Aerospace Giant Airbus first experimented with the MUM-T technology, and a few more global companies, such as BAE System, Qinetiq, and Leonardo, based in U.K. joined to explore this concept. But also, the higher portion of the budget allocated for military spending and successively experiments with new MUM-T technology for military purposes by the U.S. government will progress the North American region. For instance, in March 2022, BAE Systems conducted a flight test of advanced Manned Unmanned Teaming (MUM-T) technology belonging to U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).

Key Players Covered:

The report includes the profiles of top players such as Airbus, BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin, Grey Dynamics, Leidos company, Swarming Technologies and Solutions, Leonardo Helicopters, General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, L3 Technologies, Qinetiq, Bell, Korea Aerospace Industries, and others.
