LONDON, 24 October 2011. Government spending on reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition (RSTA) systems will total $3.36 billion globally in 2011, according to Visiongain's latest report, “The Military Ground Reconnaissance, Surveillance, Target Acquisition Systems Market 2011-2021.” The global RSTA systems market provides government contract opportunities for major defense and securityprime contractors, as well as electro-optical sensor manufacturers, analysts say.

RSTA systems, which are critical to the full spectrum of land-based military operations, requires such equipment as night-vision goggles (NVG), thermal weapon sights (TWS), counter-fire radar systems, and vehicle-mounted long-range reconnaissance and surveillance sensors.

Visiongain’s “The Military Ground Reconnaissance, Surveillance, Target Acquisition Systems Market 2011-2021” report includes the following sections:
