WinterGreen Research announces that it has published a new study on Military Ground Robot Mobile Platform Systems of Engagement: Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2015-2021. The 2015 study has 644 pages, 302 tables and figures. Worldwide markets are poised to achieve significant change as platforms of engagement leverage military grade mobile robotic device capabilities in the fight against terrorism. Economies of scale and new levels of protection availability are provided by military robots. Military robot target markets are military, government, and commercial. Funding sources for military robots are likely to expand beyond the army to the state department and the intelligence community. Beyond that, virtually every government department is likely to purchase military robots.
Funding sources for military robots become more widely dispersed than has been the case with military purchases by the cold war military industrial complex. Instead of a very few large defense contractors fighting for each large contract award, military robots represent adaptations of competitive bidding to suit the military needs for a robot.

Some funding may come from organizations like the FAA, the agriculture department, the CDC, and other government agencies that have outreach responsibility. The point is that military robots are affordable, useful, flexible, able to be re-purposed, and extremely effective in the field.
The military robots that are lasting are those implemented as a versatile platform ready to combat terrorism wherever it appears. Terrorists feed on the unexpected. As a military robotic platform technology that accepts multiple different modules, robots can be repurposed within minutes in the event of a terrorist attack.
A traditional IED military robot deterrent may...
