Published on

IDGA is excited to announce registration is now open for the 7th Annual Military Radar Summit – the premier military radar community event of the year! We had an excellent turnout last year and are building on this success through innovative sessions and speakers for 2014.

This year’s event is on the “business of radars” that seeks to bridge gaps between DOD, US Government, OEM’s, subcontractors, academia, and businesses of all sizes. It provides a forum for radar stakeholders to look to the future of military radar while examining projects aimed at prolonging the lives of current US military radars.
