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.

While these new systems undoubtedly present major challenges to the radar community, they also present one of their greatest opportunities; new developments in UAV’s and autonomous drones, for instance, have created new opportunities for micro-radar systems as guidance systems – a particular focus for numerous autonomous last mile delivery programmes currently being developed by the world’s military

Military Radar 2018 will identify the critical improvements to radar functionality. Key to the programme will be an update on the US inter-department radar procurement to detect and track UAV’s, and updates from leading figures on the Autonomous Last Mile Resupply programme in the UK.

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..
