In the past year, radar technology has continued to evolve rapidly. The next generation of radar technology such as AESA, multi-static, through-wall and dual band radar systems are now an operational reality driving new platform and retrofit development. In addition, the demand for radar technology allowing 360 degree real time battlespace awareness has continued to increase driving research, development and procurement in the military radar sector.

Arnie Victor, Director of Strategy & Business Development in Tactical Airborne Systems, Space and Airborne Systems at Raytheon, will be speaking on this topic at the 9th Annual Military Radar (http://www.militaryradarconf.com) conference being held in London on 26-28 October 2011.  As well as discussing the current status of F-15 AESA retrofit programme, Arnie Victor will also be scrutinising the benefits of AESA with particular focus on:

  • Maintainability and sustainability
  • Through life reliability compared with previous generation mechanical radars
  • Building on AESA - Radar Common Data Link - a partnership which turns AESA systems into high-powered communication nodes.
