A direction finder (DF) can be used by an aircraft or ship as a navigational aid. This is accomplished by measuring the direction (bearing) of at least two transmitters whose locations are already known. When the measured directions from each transmitter are plotted on a map, the intersection of the two plotted lines gives the location of the aircraft or ship carrying the DF. This technique, using the directions to two or more transmitters of known location, is called triangulation.
The Major regions to produce automatic direction finder are United States, Germany and Japan, which accounting for more than 80 % of production value in total. Germany is the largest production region (production value share 40.07%). Direction Finder product demand is in a certain space, and the main consumer countries are moderately developed countries and developed countries.
Despite the presence of competition problems, due to the global recovery trend is clear, investors are still optimistic about this area; the future will still have more new investment enter the field.
In the last few years, the total number of new type of direction finder developed by domestic manufacturers is limited. This shows that the efforts to develop new product in China is not enough, but also shows that the allocation space of domestic direction finder still need to expand. There is still a big gap compared with the imported direction finder.
As large demand of high-end products at home and abroad, many companies began to enter the field of high-end. Currently, the Chinese direction finder industry needs to transit to high-end products, this industry still has considerable development prospects in China.
