Past event: Military Radar Summit 2020

Speed, Complexity, and Concealment: Accelerating Military Radar Development

Our Military Radar Summit, now in its 13th successful year, will once again provide the essential platform to discuss the ongoing efforts to advance detection and survivability capabilities for radar technology in support of emerging US National security priorities and battlefield overmatch.

The ongoing proliferation of next-generation missile and hypersonic threats, to include the rapidly increasing instances of UAV and UAS threats, leadership across the Armed Services is poised to leverage advanced radar and sensor solutions that address these future challenges. Our senior level faculty can speak to how the ongoing development of radar and sensor technologies will meet these emerging threats.

Leadership across the Services have routed radar development to focus on advancing small target detection, sensor fusion, cognitive radar, SWAP-C, autonomous assets, survivability and resiliency to enable improved mission success. Our previous iteration offered senior-level understanding across these trends, and our 2020 summit will revisit and update them, while also focusing on new areas such as AI and ML for improved radar, ongoing service-wide sensor efforts, hypersonic detection and more.

Join Our Military Radar Summit 2020 for the unique opportunity to collaborate and network with key leaders, solutions providers, and subject matter experts across the radar community. Attend our summit not only for the chance to guide your professional radar understanding and development aligned with Military priorities, but also to network and benchmark your solutions with the Military Services, Federal Government, and DoD, sharing their next-generation radar roadmaps, acquisition priorities, future technology priorities, and much more!

Why Attend?

  • Better Understanding on military and government needs and processes for acquisition, in order to secure the bid.
  • Discover New Emerging Technologies and innovative strategies, improving interoperability and radar capabilities to enhance operation efficiencies.
  • Test New Technologies during our Demo Drive, evaluate and analyze new technology to advance operations.
  • Hear from key thought leaders in the Radar community including the latest challenges and requirements for the next generation of radar technology
  • Join Our Technical Training Day to get an inside perspective and learn more about cognitive radar, spectrum challenges and supporting domain awareness.
