9:30 am - 9:40 am CHAIRMAN’S OPENING REMARKS

9:40 am - 10:20 am IS RADAR STILL INTEGRAL TO MILITARY OPERATIONS IN THE 21ST CENTURY

       Understanding how current radar systems are deployed by NORAD
       Assessing the capability of SatCom and advanced surveillance systems to replace radar
       Demonstrating why radar systems are still utilised and developed by the world’s defence forces
       Will radar ultimately be replaced by future surveillance techniques?

10:20 am - 11:00 am ‘SUPER RADARS’ AND THREAT DETECTION

Darren Coe - Technical Lead - Airborne Radar Qinetiq
       Understanding the operational requirements of multi-system radars to provide 360 degree coverage
       Demonstrating how interoperability between multiple radar systems can be improved
       How radar functionality is maintained across NORAD’s multiple platforms
       Is radar still the most appropriate means of target identification and tracking at extreme range
