Technological Advancements in EO/IR Systems are Driving the Market 

Technological advancements have played a significant role in the substantial growth of the EO/IR market. Rapid progress in technology has significantly enhanced the capabilities of EO/IR sensors. The development of high-performance, low-power electronics has facilitated the creation of smaller and more efficient EO/IR systems. This miniaturization has led to greater portability and expanded the range of military and commercial applications for EO/IR sensors and systems. 

Furthermore, advancements in image processing and computer vision algorithms have revolutionized the field. These improvements enable the processing of vast amounts of data captured by EO/IR sensors, resulting in enhanced capabilities for target detection and recognition. A notable example is the Shotover M2 EO/IR system, introduced in July 2022. This highly advanced system combines EO/IR sensors with advanced stabilization technology, allowing it to deliver high-quality imagery even in challenging environments. It has been designed for various applications, including search and rescue, law enforcement, and military operations. Such advancements exemplify how technology is driving the EO/IR market and expanding its application possibilities.
