Frost & Sullivan to Host Analyst Briefing on the Armoured Vehicle Survivability Market on Thursday, August 26, 2010 at 4:00pm BST

LONDON, August 12, 2010 - To date, the vehicle survivability market was largely driven by ongoing
conflicts in the Middle East; however the gradual drawdown of these military
operations is resulting in a shift from combat to stabilization operations.
Armoured vehicle procurement across Europe is slowly moving from urgent
operational requirement to regular procurement. The experiences gained during
active combat will be implemented in every process of vehicle design and new
protection systems are being developed to improve the survivability of
vehicles against future threats.


To provide unique insights into the armoured vehicle survivability market
(passive armour, active protection and electronic countermeasure systems),
the Aerospace & Defence Group at Frost & Sullivan ( is pleased to announce that it will be
hosting an online analyst briefing presentation on Thursday, 26 August, 2010
at 4:00pm BST.

By discussing emerging trends and providing forward projections for the
industries involved in vehicle survivability, this briefing will benefit
vehicle manufacturers, Ministries of Defence, passive, active, and reactive
armour manufacturers as well as electronic countermeasure systems

Highlights of the briefing include analyses of: major market trends in
armour systems, active protection systems, and electronic countermeasure
systems as well as a discussion on the challenges facing survivability system

"Survivability system providers are using experience gained during active
combat to better meet future demand for different protection levels and to
better address the inherent shortcomings they entail. It is these
shortcomings that now drive demand for high performance materials and other
survivability solutions like Active Protection Systems and Electronic
Countermeasure Systems," says Frost & Sullivan's Research Associate, Binny
Winson. "Shifting procurement patterns and shrinking defence budgets are
pushing the armoured vehicle industry toward consolidation. This, together
with the lessons learned during war, is forcing survivability system
providers to change their product offering from layered survivability to
integrated survivability. To succeed, industry participants should start
preparing now for the inevitable challenges that lie ahead."
