RADAR (Radio Detection and Ranging)
Radar systems with enhanced features are much sought after for surveillance, tracking and imaging applications, required for both civilian and military contexts.
Advanced radar technologies are needed to face the problem of complex environments, with changing electromagnetic properties of targets, such as vehicles, ships, buildings and terrain, for different frequencies, polarimetric modes and configurations.
For the last few decades radar imaging and sensing technology has made major scientific and technical progress. The first applications of this technology were devoted mostly to military uses.
Nowadays, radar imaging and sensing techniques are widely used in many civilian applications, ranging from medicine, though security, to safety assistance sensors widely used in transportation, including cars, trains and airplanes, among others.
In fact, these technologies are now present all-around us.
Many prominent technology growth sectors rely upon solid-state radar and new methods of fabrication and programming.
These sectors include autonomous vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and various commercial/civilian applications.
Experts in this area believe this resurgence is a byproduct of escalating advancements in radar, stealth and jamming technologies for defense that is driving conventional radar solutions into obsolescence. A wide accessibility to sophisticated digital-signal processing (DSP), agile RF transceivers and cutting-edge antenna techniques is fueling this accelerating change.
A contributing factor to enhanced capabilities and decreased costs is the development of new antenna and radar fabrication technologies such as GaN power transistors, low noise amplifiers (LNA) and active electronically steered array (AESA) antennas have been central to recent radar and radar jammer military contract awards and system deployments around the globe.
It’s now commonly agreed that radars employing these technologies outperform conventional radar systems and have spurred a flood of new and innovative radar design and fabrication approaches.
For example, new AESA technologies have enabled an evolution to higher (millimeter wave) frequencies providing greater resolution with smaller phased-array antennas, while modular design approaches enable rapid adoption of new digital processing and computation techniques.
