Global $29.97 Billion Radar Security Industry Analysis, 2026 – Featuring Profiles of FLIR Systems, Israel Aerospace Industries, Kelvin Hughes, and Other Key Players


DUBLIN, December 20, 2021–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Global Radar Security Market – Forecasts from 2021 to 2026” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The global radar security market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.67% to reach US$29.973 billion by 2026, from US$16.748 billion in 2019.

The growing use of radar security due to the rising security concerns is one of the major factors driving the growth of the radar security market. Also, the rising territorial conflicts and political instabilities in Asia-Pacific and Middle East regions have been a prime factor for the growth of this industry. The increasing demand for radar systems in military applications and the adoption of these security systems by many countries for securing their border are making headway for the growth of this industry.

The adoption of radar security systems for the application of highway safety systems and anti-collision systems for trains is anticipated to contribute to the growth of this industry during the forecast period. The border security application is anticipated to be one of the prime factors for the growth of radar systems in the market. The growing territorial activities across the border, monitoring illegal activities like human trafficking, illegal entry of immigrants, securing imports and exports at the borders are the major drivers of the radar security market. Also, the minimization of defense budgets in some developed economies has shifted the focus towards miniaturization & automation of defense & surveillance systems.

Companies Profiled in the Report

  • FLIR Systems

  • Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd.

  • Kelvin Hughes Limited

  • Lockheed Martin Corporation

  • Raytheon Company

  • SRC Inc.

  • Saab AB

  • Thales

  • Northrop Grumman Corporation

  • Reutech Radar System

Increase in the investment and development of ballistic missiles and another defense system

One of the major reasons for the growth of this industry is the increasing investment and development of the defense sector including the ballistic missile and other air missiles which has accounted for countries to invest in radar securities that can sense and alert the intrusion of any foreign missile in its radar.

High development and…

Global Botnet Hijacks $500,000 In Crypto Transactions In Just One Year


A stealthy botnet that has infected computers in nearly 100 different countries is silently stealing cryptocurrency from its victims. From November 2020 to November 2021 it hijacked nearly $500,000.

The Phorpiex botnet has been operating since 2016 and is made up of hundreds of thousands of compromised devices. Back in 2019 it was grabbing headlines for an alarmingly successful sextortion email campaign that was raking in $20,000 a month for its criminal controllers.

Phorpiex also has the ability to steal cryptocurrency, which it does by “crypto-clipping.” In these attacks, malware on an infected devices waits for cryptocurrency transactions to be take place. When a transaction is detected, the malware clips the original destination wallet address and replaces it with one controlled by the attacker.

According to Check Point Research the Phorpiex crypto-clipper supports more than 30 different cryptocurrencies. Since April of 2016 Phorpiex has hijacked thousands of transactions and swiped around 38 Bitcoin and 133 Ether. At today’s exchange rates that works out to around $2.2 million in stolen cryptocurrency.

From last November until this November alone Phorpiex successfully clipped 969 transactions. Those attacks netted its controller(s) more than $650,000.

This summer, however, the botnet activity suddenly tailed off. In August one of its creators allegedly walked away from cybercrime and the other decided to sell the Phorpiex code to the highest bidder.

Whether or not a sale actually happened, Phorpiex was back a few weeks later with some new tricks. A new variant called Twizt emerged.

One of the biggest differences with Twizt is that the botnet is now able to communicate peer-to-peer. That means it’s not dependent on specific command and control servers. Infected hosts can send instructions to each other.

Twizt has also added a double-encrypted protocol for communication and new data integrity functions. Check Point researcher Alexey Bukhteyev says The emergence of such features suggests that the botnet may become even more stable and therefore, more dangerous.”

Hard Numbers: Global vaccine good news, rampant ransomware, 5G growing fast, Spanish wind power


58.1: As of December 17, 56.6 percent of the global population has received at least one COVID vaccine shot. We sometimes don’t realize how big of an achievement this is from just a year ago, when frontline health workers were the first to get jabs.


11: A ransomware attack occurred every 11 seconds in 2021, according to one estimate. Earlier this year, hackers carried out their most famous attack to date against Colonial Pipeline, which supplies almost half of the oil and gas consumed in the US Eastern Seaboard.

540 million: Global 5G connections are expected to reach 540 million by the end of the year, according to a new report. That’s more than double the amount in all of 2020.

23.1: Wind became Spain’s top energy source this year, overtaking nuclear for the first time. Half of the country’s energy now comes from renewable sources, which the government hopes will help bring down sky-high power prices in 2021.
