Military Radar Summit

Washington, DC, United States

Speed, Complexity, and Concealment: Accelerating Military Radar Development

Our 13th Annual Military Radar Conference will provide a means 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. Advancing radar technology across the Military is critical, perhaps more than ever due to the widespread maturation of advanced UAV technology and ballistic missile threats. Large or small, it is imperative for the Military to advance and develop detection and overall Radar capabilities as future threats continue to grow in complexity and concealment.

Since the integration of radar technology into the Military environment in the 1930s, it has long since served as a tool to better detect and provide greater situational awareness. Leaders across the Services, Federal Government and Academia have worked tirelessly to improve and develop small target detection, sensor fusion, cognitive radar, SWAP-C, autonomous assets, survivability and resiliency that enable operational mission success.

Join our 13th Annual Military Radar Summit for the unique opportunity to collaborate and network with key leaders, solutions provides, and subject matter experts across the radar community. Join our esteemed faculty as they provide updates on emerging acquisitions and procurements, roadmaps for future technology and integration, next-generation scientific capability, and much more!
