High frequency technology is employed in cases where secure communication is required along with reliable communication. Extremely high frequency technology is the next level where data is transmitted securely irrespective of the distance. Data can be transmitted through any medium and over any platform without fear of the data being intercepted, corrupted or jammed. Because of the hardware, software and special middleware which is required for the technology, it is not used commercially across all segments and hence is restricted to just aerospace & defence, telecommunications and space exploration. Within telecommunications, the technology is again not used for day to day enterprise applications but along the lines for secure data communications at the highest level of the respective country.
Extremely high frequency technology is also used for navigation purposes wherein through the data transmitted and received, navigation can be made possible. The technology is used extensively by the armed forces and agencies for intelligence gathering and military communications. The technology has extensively been used by the US and European armed forces for over the last decade and as such are the largest contributors to the market as of 2015. The technology has been used to provide real-time data to ground troops on enemy movement and possible threats in the vicinity. Based on data and intelligence gathered, troops are able to make informed decisions. As a result of the tactical advantage which extremely high frequency technology provides, the military of numerous governments have invested heavily into the technology.
In terms of investment in space exploration, the technology is widely used for transmission between satellites and stations, probes etc as the data transmitted through the large distance is done so with minimal loss which is extremely important considering the type and volume of data being transmitted over the large distance.
