4 Game-Changing Underlying Technologies for Advanced Radar

November 27, 2018
The electromagnetic spectrum is an increasingly contentious warfare domain.  This evolution presents new challenges for scientists and engineers who are designing intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) systems. Engineers are asked to develop increasingly complex systems using more cost- and time-effective methods.
 
Yet, the underlying technologies that enable these sophisticated systems are also evolving to meet these challenges. NI believes the following four recent innovations will have the biggest enabling impact on radar technology over the next several years.
 
1. Gallium Nitride for Front-End Components
2. High-Speed Data Converters for Transmit and Receive
3. Evolving FPGA Technology for Cognitive Techniques
4. High-Bandwidth Data Buses for Sensor Fusion
