Maritime surveillance and intervention systems are used to optimize maritime security. The MSI comprises various components systems such as combat management systems, detectors, surveillance, tracking system, geographic information system (GIS), and others. They are used to perform reconnaissance operations. The advanced surveillance and intervention solutions are used to offer help for securing merchant vessels, coastal lines, ports, and critical infrastructure facilities. The rising sea traffic due to an expansion in payload vessels for transportation simultaneously sees the increments in oceanic crimes. The MSI can provide protection solutions against various seaways crimes, such as smuggling, piercing, drug trafficking, illegal immigration, human trafficking, illicit fishing, and others. Therefore, the growing deployment of advanced surveillance systems and supportive regulatory intervention will fortify the country's ocean security.

Demand for Maritime Surveillance UAV To Surge During COVID-19 Crisis

The outbreak of coronavirus has created a large impact on the maritime industry. The lockdown has temporarily stopped many marine operations such as transportation, fishing, and oil and gas processing, to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Thus, to monitor coastline, the coastguards are using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to perform maritime surveillance operations remotely. If any lockdown violators are detected, the coastline law enforcement team will take strict action against them for breaking the regulations. Therefore, the demand for maritime surveillance UAV is increased to enhance the coastline security and safety of the coast guard.

In the defense sector, it is used for applications such as intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), rapid environmental assessment, and mine countermeasures.


Growing Focus on Strengthening Maritime Safety and Security to Fuel Demand for MSI Solution

The maritime traffic is ceaseless on the ascent, with growing ocean trade across the world. Maritime trade is the most established and highly preferred form of cargo import and export as it can carry heavyweight goods. The rising seaway transportation has expanded the presence of various trader vessels in the sea, which has simultaneously increased the rate of ocean crimes around the world. This has prompted the adoption of surveillance and intervention solutions to prevent ocean criminal activities such as piracy, illegal immigration, smuggling, and others. Besides, developing international pressure and terrorist activities have fortified the selection of MSI to reinforce the country's oceanic well-being and security. These are the development factors liable to fueled the growth of the market of MSI.

Development of Upgraded MSI Aircraft to Deliver Optimized Surveillance and Intervention Facilities to Aid Growth

The trend-setting innovation-based frameworks, such as satellite radar, thermal imaging, automatic identification system, underwater robotic system, and long-range identification and tracking device, are utilized for improving the capacities of sea reconnaissance and security activity. In this way, the interest in groundbreaking MSI aircraft is expanding, which has coordinated the reconnaissance frameworks. These airplanes are uncommonly intended to screen sea development. If the sensor framework would recognize any unlawful movement, it will get straightforwardly sent to the oceanic law implementation group to deal with the circumstance further. For instance, the sea surveillance airplane fabricated by Saab AB is utilized for a variety of operations, such as safeguarding, illicit control immigration, search and rescue operation, coastline surveillance, and economic zone monitoring. Additionally, the Dassault Aviation SA has agreed to plan another age MSI airplane for the French protection activity.


Detection of Stealth Vessels and Constant Danger of Digital Assault to Hamper Growth

With developing technology, the development of stealth vessels is likewise expanding. The stealth vessels are difficult to detect with low generation monitoring system technology. So, there is a need to build up an advanced surveillance solution. To develop an advanced system, the high initial cost is necessary, and that is the major challenge to the original equipment manufacturers. Moreover, the growing risk of cyber-attack inferable from changing war nature and marine territorial disputes among the neighboring countries is another challenge that is hampering the growth of the MSI market during the figure time frame.
