About the conference

 Chairman's welcome

Tony Kinghorn (photo)  "Radar technology contributes greatly to our safety and security, with applications ranging from military defence systems to air and land traffic management, weather forecasting and remote sensing.

"The role of radar in tomorrow’s world will be no less significant. The development of radar over the last century has been characterised by outstanding innovation and teamwork between industry, academia and government laboratories, an approach which will continue to be essential to meet the major technical challenges of the future.

"I urge you to take the opportunity to attend Radar 2017, where innovative research is published and shared within the radar community. International co-operation is likely to be of even more importance in the future, and this conference provides an excellent opportunity to build relationships.

"I look forward to meeting you in Belfast."
