RAdio Detection And Ranging (RADAR) has become such a ubiquitous part of today’s society, both commercially and in defense, that the acronym “RADAR” has largely been replaced with the word “radar.” In spite of its pervasive use, many people don’t understand the basics of this critical technology.
This interactive journey, from the humble electron all the way up to the self-driving car, explores sound and light, size, wavelength and frequency. Attendees will get an overview of the history and evolution of radar. From the origins of radar prior to WWII, through Pulse Doppler radars, Continuous Wave radars, Monopulse radars, and to modern Active Electronically Scanned Arrays (AESA), the attendee will understand the fundamentals of how radars work.
The 30-minute presentation will be followed by a 10-15 minute Q&A period where you can bring your questions to the presenter. This webinar, aimed at everyone from layperson to expert, carefully builds in easily understood concepts, combining them in a way that reveals radar as one of technology's greatest achievements.
Do you know a high-school or college student that is interested in a STEM career? ...or maybe a co-worker that would benefit from a fundamental understanding of radar? This webinar is a great opportunity to invite them to learn about radars, and hear about the AOC at the same time. Take this opportunity to invite a mentee to learn about the exciting, cutting-edge work being done in the world of Electromagnetic Warfare.
