Military Radar


Published on

Military Radar 2011 offers the most comprehensive and influential speaker panel yet in the ninth annual occurrence of this unique series. This year’s conference will go further than ever before to help you to achieve effective radar systems on air, sea and land, by interacting with the world’s foremost military and industry radar experts.

In the past year radar technology has continued to evolve rapidly. The next generation of radar technology such as AESA, multi-static, through-wall and dual band radar systems are now an operational reality driving new platform and retrofit development. In addition the demand for radar technology allowing 360 degree real time battlespace awareness has continued to increase driving research, development and procurement in the military radar sector.
