SECURITY AND SPACE
Enabling and securing progress
Like many other industries, security is in the early stages of its digital and tech transformation thanks to innovations in artificial intelligence, robotics and augmented reality
This tech upgrade cycle gives confidence that the current capex and government spending momentum will last several years and that private contractors will keep delivering above-consensus revenue and earnings growth
Space exploration could be another major source of upside for private contractors as the US plans missions to the Moon and beyond and as the new NASA Administrator is a proponent of outsourcing some of the NASA’s operations to the private sector
Government-led space exploration will also give a boost to commercial space in the medium term
Civil security will be in the spotlight as the Internet of Things opens the way to new cyber attacks and as smart cities become reality, pointing to strong demand for smart devices, inspection and detection systems and cyber security
The rise of smart and safe cities
With the rise of IoT and smart cities, security threats will only keep growing and society will have to adapt
against this backdrop, companies are investing in new technologies that identify, analyze and process threat-related data.
Biometrics uses facial image, fingerprint, iris, DNA or voice pattern to identify individuals.
Biometrics has many applications:
All connected devices and systems will be exposed to security threats. Attacks on the IoT
will hit healthcare, financial services, manufacturing. 50% of new business processes
and systems will include an IoT component by 2020 (source: Gartner).
The cyber security market is expected to grow from USD 122 bn in 2016 to USD 202 bn
by 2021, a 10.6% CAGR (Source: Research and Markets).
How to protect against cyber attacks?
Space is not only important for the future of transportation,
it’s important for the future of imagination…
Georges Whitesides, CEO Virgin Galactic
Space exploration is a source of innovations in the fields of healthcare, materials, robotics and transportation systems but also remains important in defense-related fields such as aeronautics and IT & Telecoms (satellites).
Satellites appear as a major actor in the global security value chain, creating the fundamentals for telecommunication technologies.
Innovation at the service of security and public safety:
Technology as a driver of space exploration:
