Most of the countries utilize the defense robotic system or are in the process of
acquiring or building the technology to incorporate into military programs. These
robots are used in form of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), unmanned group vehicles
(UGVs) and unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs). Unmanned group vehicles are robots
that move on wheels or tracks and perform the function of sentry duties and examine
the potential hostile location. Unmanned aerial vehicles are essentially remotely
controlled or automated robots. The use of all these robotic system includes same
purpose of replacing or supplementing human in battlefield situations. Deployment
of autonomous or semi autonomous robotic system in the battle field helps in improving
the military efficiency, operational performance and accuracy. \

Defense robotics has many advantages, the important one being performance similar
to human being without danger of human casualties. Robots can endure damage done by
bombs or other types of weapons that can destroy the human body. Another advantage
includes various sizes of robots which enables them to fit into spaces that are not
accessible for humans. Other advantages include transportation, drones and bomb disposal.
The defense robotic system market across the globe is expected to show a substantial
growth with a single digit increase in CAGR by the year 2019. The growth is due to
the procurement of robotic vehicles for control, communication, simulation, training
and other applications for military purposes.
The market for defense robotics system is driven by factors such as desire to reduce
the casualties in the field of operation and reduce the military spending. Development
in the field of computer programming, sensing technology and material science help
to create more advanced tools. Some of the factors restraining the market growth include
reduced spending on defense system due to weak economic conditions, and high cost
required in manufacturing of robots. Technological availability is enabling diverse
applications of robots besides improving the effectiveness and efficiency of the system.
Applications such as border patrolling are creating an increasing demand for UAVs
and UGVs in countries such as Israel, South Korea, China and United States.
