1 Introduction
1.1 What is this Report About?

        This report offers detailed SWOT analysis of the global military rotorcrafts market. It provides detailed
        characteristics of the military rotorcrafts market determining the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and
        threats.

1.2 Definitions

        For the purposes of this report, the following timeframes apply:

                   Forecast period: 2011 to 2021

        The following are definitions of military expenditure:

                   Capital expenditure (capex) covers research and development (R&D), procurement, maintenance,
                    transportation, and the storage of weaponry and other equipments. It also includes expenditure
                    relating to aircraft and aero engines, heavy and medium vehicles, naval equipment, and the
                    purchase of land, construction, plants and machinery.

        The following are definitions of military rotorcraft’s categories:

                  Transport helicopter are fixed and rotary wing cargo aircraft which are used to deliver troops,
                   weapons and other military equipment by a variety of methods to any area of military operations.
                   They operate in three classes: assault, medium and heavy.
                  Attack helicopter a military helicopter specifically designed and built to carry weapons for attacking
                   targets on the ground, such as enemy infantry, armored vehicles and structures. The helicopter has
                   no standard cargo capacity and is used as a "flying tank" in close air support or battlefield air
                   interdiction.
                  Multi-mission and rescue helicopter also known as a utility helicopter is used to carry out various
                   roles such as ground attack, air assault, cargo, surveillance and troop transport. Sizes range
                   between cargo helicopters and light observation helicopters and they are capable of lifting troops
                   but are also used in a command and control, logistics, casualty evacuation or armed helicopter
                   roles.
                  Maritime helicopter are helicopters used for sea-based missions, operated primarily from frigates,
                   destroyers and oil rigs. They are generally used for the recovery of personnel from the ocean, anti-
                   submarine warfare, guidance and mid-course update aircraft.
                  Training helicopter is a light class helicopter used primarily for the purposes of pilot training.
                   However, some countries such as the UK use it additionally in operations.
                  Reconnaissance and observation helicopter is used to provide terminal guidance to anti-tank
                   guided weapon systems (ATGWs), laser guided bombs and other missiles and munitions fired by
                   armed aircraft. It can also be used to provide limited direct fire support or close air support.
