Discovering new detection capabilities to tackle future threats

Military radar systems have undergone substantial changes since they were first deployed, with new challenges forcing new operating procedures and capabilities in radar. With the emergence of UAV’s and drones, and the increasingly and overwhelmingly cluttered Electromagnetic Spectrum, military radar operators now face their greatest challenge in recent history. As the threat develops across new and multiple fields, engaging with these challenges now is a critical requirement for all radar operators.

Taking the lead in the new era of radar systems, the conference this year will focus on the upcoming major US radar procurement programme, designed to totally revolutionise their radar network. Led by the strategic and technical leads of the SENSR programme –the largest US radar procurement in recent history – the conference will outline the technical requirements, critical development path and the expectations of industry from the programme heads of key agencies involved in SENSR – HQ NORAD and the NOAA.

Ahead of the programme going to market next year, the military radar conference will demonstrate the full extent of the programme, exploring the latest in academic research, technical capacity and industry capability to inform the programme, and challenge industry to present new creative approaches to the future of radar.

Join a panel of experts at the 16th annual Military Radar summit, as they establish a critical path for applying advanced radar technology to address new challenges. Take part in the only summit committed not just to realising the latest research, but to understanding how this research is being applied by the world’s leading defence agencies.
