In recent conflicts (e.g. Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Gaza) , wherever the U.S., NATO, Israel and other nations have overwhelming combat power, their adversaries (e.g., Al-Qaeda, Taliban, ISIS, Hamas, Hezbollah) resorted to a much more primitive combat strategy, the use of underground tunnels and structures. The challenge posed by these clandestine tunnels and underground structures is the key to the emergence of transformational counter-terror technologies and tactics. The maturity and deployment of these technologies are forecasted to alter the asymmetric landscape of subterranean warfare into a symmetric encounter.

Future subterranean warfare techno-tactics will be based on:

  • Fused Multi-Modal Multi-Sensor systems for clandestine tunnels & underground structures detection.
  • Proactive Subterranean Warfare, in which remotely controlled “Detect and Kill” subterranean robots will search, locate and destroy the adversary tunnels and buried structures.

These new developments will open a new era of “Subterranean Warfare” in which a host of ever-changing technologies and tactics will be employed by armed forces and law enforcement agencies. The report examines each dollar spent in the market via two orthogonal money trails: by Technology, Solutions & Service Sectors and by Country-Region.
