Technology Trends for Radar Systems
February 12, 2013
8:00 AM PT/ 11:00 AM ET/ 4:00 PM UTC
While the use of active electronically scanned arrays is becoming a prevalent feature for future radar systems, there is also a large base of legacy systems that will also remain operational over the next twenty-five to thirty years. There are a range of technologies that are available including solid-state electronics and traveling wave tubes, each with their unique feature sets and advantages that make them suitable for radar applications. This webinar will explore what enabling technologies will underpin future system architectures as system designs evolve.
