Defence AI Research
and Develpment

The defense industry is widely changing with the adoption of advanced technologies.

Artificial intelligence in defense market was valued at US$ 6.91 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach US$ 13.15 billion by 2028; it is expected to register a CAGR of 11.7% from 2023 to 2028.

The defense industry is widely changing with the adoption of advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, quantum computing, space-based telecommunications, and robotics.

The rise in threats due to wars and cyberattacks in the defense industry has supported the implementation of the technologies by land, sea and naval –based military force.

The application of AI land autonomus systemshelp these military forces to gain information about battlefield situational awareness and efficently operate precision guide weapons systems.

Factors such as the growing adoption of AI in unmanned aerial vehicles and high government spending on defense to improve AI capabilities are influencing the artificial intelligence in defense market growth. Moreover, the incorporation of quantum computing in artificial intelligence and the growing development of robots using AI are among other factors contributing to the market growth.


Artificial intelligence in defense refers to the integration of advanced technologies withdefense equipment to increase its efficiency and applications. In several developed countries, the defense sector receives the investments from the government.


For instance, according to SIPRI, the US military expenditure increased to US$ 876.9 billion in 2022 from US$ 806.2 billion in 2021. These investments are used in the research and development of new technologies and for developing advanced equipment that can be used during battles or wars. Artificial intelligence equipped with defense systems is capable of handling large volumes of data efficiently.


In addition, these systems have improved self-regulation and self- control due to their enhanced computing and decision-making capabilities. Further, autonomous weapon platforms use computer vision technology to identify and track objects.
