Title: Recent Radar and Phased-Array Breakthroughs

Date: May 2, 2018

Time: 8am PT / 11am ET

Sponsored by: Rohde & Schwarz

Presented by: Dr. Eli Brookner


The advent of the active electronically steered array (AESA) enabled significant improvements in radar capabilities. Beyond just the change in architectures, system capabilities are increasing due to the confluence of improvements in microwave and signal processing technologies:

  • GaN power amplifiers
  • MMIC and Extreme MMIC integration
  • T/R module cost reduction
  • Silicon RF performance to >100 GHz
  • Moore’s law continued advance
  • Electro-optic integration
  • Digital Beamforming (DBF)
  • New materials: metamaterial, graphene and carbon nanotubes
  • New Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) architecture
The webinar will discuss these trends in enabling technologies as well as the evolution in phased array systems.

Presenter Bio:

Dr. Eli Brookner is well known for his contributions to radar technology. He retired from Raytheon as Principal Engineering Fellow in 2014 after a long and distinguished career. He has contributed to radars for air traffic control, defense, space and navigation – virtually every major defense radar program. Eli has been recognized with numerous awards and honors, including Fellow of the IEEE, AIAA, and MSS and the 2006 IEEE Dennis J. Picard Medal for Radar Technology and Application and the 2003 IEEE Warren White Award. He has written numerous papers and articles and four books on radar systems, phased arrays and tracking. Eli received his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the City College of New York and his master’s and Dr.Sc. from Columbia University.
