Urban Defense Operations (Urban Warfare) - Thematic Research
Published: July 3, 2020 Content info: 22 Pages
Description

Urban Defense Operations (Urban Warfare) continue to be an important element of warfare, as villages, towns, cities and an increasing number of megacities are becoming increasingly connected to each other through networks, access to resources and infrastructure.

Urban operations is not just another part in the spectrum of warfare. It is found in every part of it, ranging from high-intensity to low-intensity warfare. As such, there are plenty of historical examples such as those from Stalingrad, Aachen, Hue city and Fallujah, to Grozny, Panama City and the effort to clear Iraqi urban areas from ISIS combatants.

Warfare in an urban environment is still important for military planners and will be of extreme importance due to the increasing urbanization and the potential of a near-peer confrontation between major powers, in densely populated areas of the world.

The report summarises the Urban Operations market and provides information about the business opportunities in it and the direction of market trends.

This report focuses on Urban Operations, which are important for military planners and will be of extreme importance due to the increasing urbanization and the potential of a near-peer confrontation between major powers, in densely populated areas of the world.

Urban Operations thematic research offers a detailed analysis of how it affects force structures, procurement and operational concepts. The research includes insightful industry analysis of the Urban Operations and key use cases highlighting how militaries and constabulary forces around the world have started working on the development and implementation of the associated technologies.

Scope

  • With urban operations spanning both from low to high-intensity warfare scenarios, the forces required to fight it are both heavy and lighter ones. Fighting in an urban environment is a complex operation that includes many phases.
  • It should not be regarded as an independent type of operation but rather interconnected and dictated by the geography and the nature of the terrain, and most prominently by the fact that urban areas are interconnected between themselves, forming part of an economic, political, social and technological web.
  • All these variables require a wide set of combat capabilities. However, due to the difficulties of the urban terrain, where every artificial structure is used as an obstacle, disrupting the pace of operations and the cohesion (situational awareness) of combat units, there are certain technologies capable of providing an advantage to units and soldiers.
