Radar has played a crucial role in the military during the 20th century. This technology of using radio waves to detect the existence of faraway metallic objects was however developed in the late 19th century.
Fast forward nowadays RADAR has become a technology with massive and divers applications in air-defence systems, space and ocean surveillance, outer space and radar astronomy, missile applications, air and terrestrial traffic control, self-driving cars and so many others.
Radar and Electronic Warfare (EW) are undergoing rapid growth and innovation in both government and commercial sectors.
New advanced and cognitive radar/EW architectures are emerging that leverage advances in key enabling radio frequency (RF) technologies, high performance embedded computing (HPEC), and machine intelligence. Applications include advanced phased array radars, multistatics, UAV radar, ground penetrating radar (GPR), cognitive radar and EW, health monitoring and automotive.
