The Internet of Military Things, or IoMT, is at early stages, even for advanced militaries. Information always has been, and always will be, at the centre of warfare. Modern warfare is increasingly information-based, and soldiers and decision-makers need a continual flow of up-to-date information to quickly make the best decisions possible. Here, IoMT can speed up and increase the efficiency of the observe, orient, decide, act (OODA) loop.
The IoMT uses multiple sensors deployed across various domains to acquire full situational awareness and control over diverse conflict zones and battle areas. Advanced military forces have invested in command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems and infrastructure to collect, analyze, and disseminate data.

This report provides an overview of the IoMT market, outlines advances in technology and key programs, and discusses the challenges that forces will face when implementing IoMT programs.

Key Highlights

  • Case studies of key programs conducted by the US, Russia and other major forces.
  • Challenges to successful Internet of Military Things adoption.


  • The key defense challenges that forces and defense sector suppliers face are covered.
  • There investment opportunities, for forces, suppliers, and institutional investors, across the whole IoMT value chain are covered.
  • Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), prime contractors, Tier 1 & 2 subcontractors, Tier 3, 4, & 5 suppliers, and end-users (military forces) can implement technologies and services from across the entired Internet of things (IoT) value chain for gains: devices, connectivity, data, apps, and services are available and can act as a force multipler.
