David Fishering - Analyst Profile
Defense Industry Analyst, Homeland Security Lead
Frost & Sullivan
Aerospace & Defense
SummaryMy primary role is to monitor and analyze emerging trends, technologies and market behavior in the homeland security and defense industries. Through secondary research, primary interviews, and both qualitative and quantitative analysis techniques, I have completed reports and research on various subjects including CBRNE detection and defense, container security, aviation security, critical infrastructure protection, defense budget and policy, C4ISR, cybersecurity, tactical vehicles, and weapon systems. Along with syndicated research, I have developed, designed, managed, and fulfilled custom consulting projects both independently and with teams of analysts for major U.S. defense contractors. Through these engagements I have had to learn and adapt quickly to deliver on projects outside the norm including land warfare, analytical modeling software, aviation seat actuators, and piezoelectric ceramics. Diversity in the subject matter that I have covered has coincided with diversity in client base; over the last 3 years I have worked with clients in the U.S., Canada, Israel, and Singapore.
