Past event: Military Radar 2019 Conference

Discovering the Critical Developments and Latest Requirements in Radar Systems & Technology

Delivering Future Effect to the Todays Radar Operator

Hypersonics and 5th generation fighters have changed the balance of power across Europe. With potential adversaries fielding new advanced capabilities, military radar operators across NATO are developing new systems to identify, track and monitor new threats to their airspace.

Over the three-day summit we will examine the latest advancements and initiatives in radar systems; assessing new developments in AI to develop cognitive radar systems, technical advances to enable passive and 3D phased array systems, and advanced target tracking innovations utilising Active and Passive Electronic Scanning Array and strategic challenges of airborne surveillance.

With sessions led by leading technical research institutes and strategists looking to deploy these new systems on operations, the Military Radar summit will continue to inform the future of Military Radar.

Top Reasons to Attend:

  • Hear directly from HQ NORAD on how they intend to deploy AWACS and airborne surveillance capabilities to counter future operational threat
  • Discover the critical advances in system capability making cognitive and passive radar deployments a reality of the next operating theatre
  • Develop autonomous systems in AESA radar to ensure systems remain operationally viable and capable against the next generation of airborne threat
  • Explore the challenges of operating in the clustered electro-magnetic spectrum ti ensure survivability against developed radar counter-operations

"The summit provides a unique opportunity for military, industry and researchers to exchange opinions on current military radar requirements in a volatile and changing operational environment"
Commander, 25th Air Defence Brigade, Czech Army - Past Delegate

"The conference provided me with valuable insight into military requirements across the globe."
