Title: Latest Trends and Technology in Phased Arrays

Date: October 27, 2020

Time: 10:00am PT / 1:00pm ET

Presented by: Rick Sturdivant, Ph.D., Chief Technology Officer, MPT, Inc.

Phased arrays have traditionally been used for military radar systems. While this remains a significant and growing use for phased arrays, new applications have emerged. In fact, phased arrays are being used or planned for use on a wide range of systems such as 5G, satellite communication, and ground stations. As a result, significant investment has occurred in developing innovative phased array solutions. In this talk, Dr. Sturdivant will describe phased arrays, their key features, solutions, and latest innovations being developed.

This talk will provide an up to date overview of these recent trends with a contemplation on what’s in store for the future. Specific topics include:

  • Cognitive radar
  • Advanced waveform adaptivity/agility
  • MIMO radar advances
  • Low C-SWAP radars
  • Advanced embedded computing and signal processing
