Michael Blades, a senior analyst at the market research and consulting firm Frost & Sullivan, said the training and simulation market is attractive because while other programs in the defense budget are experiencing cuts, funding for training remains stable. Blades projected that the combined annual growth rate from fiscal year 2015 to fiscal year 2020 for total spending on training and simulation would increase about 1.7 percent per year. That number is close to the rate of inflation, which means training and simulation is a steady market, he said.

Another reason companies like Lockheed would be interested in investing in such systems is because militaries in general want to do more with less, he said. "They want to be able to do more training for readiness with the same amount of dollars."
One solution to that problem is using immersive virtual training as opposed to expensive live training, Blades said.

Blades said it could be difficult for Lockheed to maintain its role providing the training and the sustainment on the F-35 in years to come. They have the advantage up front because they are the original equipment manufacturer, he said.

Michael Blades is an analyst with market research firm Frost & Sullivan; he follows the commercial drone market.

"The airspaces in Australia and Brazil, for instance, aren't nearly as crowded as ours. And the first time one of these unmanned vehicles accidentally takes down a plane, the FAA will be torn apart. So the rule-making process is tricky, because in a way, the sky is a political battleground," said Blades.
