Operations led to establish battle space supremacy in the underwater environment, which allows friendly forces to complete the full range of missions and denies rival force for the effective use of underwater weapons and systems. It includes mine warfare operations, antisubmarine andoffensive & defensive submarine.
Underwater warfare systems is one of the three operational areas of naval warfare, aerial warfare and surface warfare. The demand for the undersea warfare systems market systems is anticipated to be driven by increasing disputes over offshore resources, trade routes and maritime borders. Counter and anti-access area denial are becoming a dynamic part of maritime strategies implemented by key navies globally and undersea warfare is anticipated to recover its importance.
Based on type, the undersea warfare systems market is divided into combat systems, sensors, manned and unmanned systems and counter measures & communication. Among various types, in 2015, the combat systemssegment estimated to be the key market followed by manned and unmanned systems and sensors.
