Airplanes use a variety of systems to achieve and maintain a safe cruising altitude, including flight propulsion systems and flight navigation systems. The following two reports explore the flight propulsion systems market and the flight navigation systems market.
Air travel is becoming more and more common. While the exact number is unknown, some reports suggest that there are between 30,000 and 50,000 airplanes currently operational throughout the world. According to the U.S. Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS), about 1.73 million passengers board domestic flights each day. To accommodate for the rising popularity of commercial air travel, airlines must expand their fleet by purchasing new aircraft.
There are dozens of different types of commercial aircraft, ranging in size, engine class, frame material and more.
However, all airplanes need a few basic systems to operate as intended, two of which include flight navigation systems and propulsion systems.
The Global Flight Navigation Systems Market Research 2018 report by The Market Reports is a comprehensive study of the global flight navigation systems market. Flight navigation systems are comprised of computers and sensors that help pilots navigate the aircraft. There are gyroscopes, for example, that measure the rotation of the aircraft. And there also magnetic sensors, known as magnetometers, that measure the aircraft's dead reckoning position. When combined and use together as a system, these sensors help pilots navigate their flight route and reach their intended destination.
Some of the key flight navigation system vendors profiled in this report include Raytheon Company, Universal Avionics Systems Corporation, The Boeing Company, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Esterline Technologies Corporation, Honeywell International Inc, Moog, Garmin Ltd, Rockwell Collins, Sagem and others.
The Global Flight Propulsion System Market Research 2018 report by The Market Reports is a second professional study, though it focuses on the flight propulsion systems market rather than the flight navigation systems market. Of course, a flight propulsion system is the hardware and software that airplanes use to generate lift and power. An engine, for example, is part of an aircraft's flight propulsion system, as it features spinning propellers that propel the aircraft through the air. Even the wheels and axles of an aircraft are considered part of its flight propulsion system. All of these components are designed to push the aircraft forward so that it can achieve and maintain lift.
This report segments the global flight propulsion systems market by several criteria. On the basis of product type, the market is segmented into air breathing engines and non-air-breathing engines. On the basis of end-user application, the market is segmented into aircraft, spacecraft, missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Finally, the report segments the global flight propulsion systems market by geographic region, including North America, Europe, China, Japan, Southeast Asia and India.
