The radar enterprise is experiencing significant growth and change in both government and commercial sectors. Military radars are continuing to evolve ever more sophisticated capabilities such as waveform agility/adaptivity, advanced high-power operation, and new cognitive operating capabilities. Moreover, this is a major thrust in developing radars and other RF systems specifically for unmanned aerial systems (UAS) that places a premium on low cost, size, weight and power (C-SWAP). The commercial sector is likewise experiencing significant growth in similar areas in the automotive and UAS detection and tracking industries. Indeed, the first cognitive radar for automotive applications was just announced in 2019. 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
