Defense Market Research Since 1999
New, Future Products and Markets

Since 1999 our firm has conducted custom market research projects for technology companies seeking new growth and diversification in U.S. and global defense markets.

​Now undergoing unprecedented change, the defense industry offers unique opportunities for new solutions that are true improvements vs. traditional offerings.

Successful suppliers to these markets are solution providers seeking competitive differentiation. They must have relevant, current understanding of customer requirements and emerging opportunities to shape successful product and sales strategies-win new business and be able to keep it.​

Companies hire us to help accelerate their success and enhance internal resource bandwidth. They have unique technologies, capabilities and need more than general market data or off-the-shelf reports to be successful. 

These clients rely on the custom research, tailored analysis, and detailed recommendations developed by our staff researchers to make critical decisions they otherwise could not make. Our contribution is always incremental to what they can develop internally.  

We maintain a broad range of defense industry contacts. Most projects involve extensive, in-depth engagement with subject matter experts and key decision makers.

All assignments are executed confidentially, commonly under an NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement).
