The Electro-optical (EO) & Infrared (IR) Sensors market is poised to register a CAGR of 3.51% during the forecast period 2021-2028.
Electro-optical and infrared systems also referred to as EO/IR systems, cover a wide range of distinct technologies based on targets and their missions. These sensors include both visible spectrum and infrared sensors, due to which EO/IR systems provide total situational awareness during both day and night, even in low light conditions. EO/IR sensors can be deployed in many ways. They are usually mounted on aircraft or vehicles, used at sea, or are hand-carried, and can identify targets, track moving targets, and assess threats from a distance. Their applications include, but are not limited to, airborne security, combat, patrol, surveillance, reconnaissance, and search and rescue operations.
