Main Conference Day One

9:10 AM UPDATING LEGACY RADAR SYSTEMS TO IMPROVE INTEGRATION AND ENHANCE THREAT DETECTION

  • What are the operational requirements of a multi-system “super radar”?  Combining the functions of several platforms in order to reduce cost, maximise coverage and enhance threat-management
  • Prior to developing a multi-system platform, how can interoperability between multiple radars be improved, regardless of mission or operational domain?
  • Delivering radar functionality across NORAD’s area of operation. What are the critical requirements of air defence radars, and how do these needs differ to those of missile defence radars?
  • To what extent is radar a worthwhile sensor for long-range detection? How can long-range radar be combined with other sensors to maximise threat identification over increased distances?
