Radar 2017

International Conference on Radar Systems

23 – 26 October 2017 | Belfast Waterfront Conference Centre, UK


Tutorials programme - 23 October 2017

Over the years tutorials have been a key component of the Radar conference series, providing an excellent educational opportunity for all aspiring and practising radar engineers.

The tutorials cover all aspects of radar from introductory material to advanced and emerging concepts, and you don’t have to be attending the conference to sign up. The Radar 2017 tutorials are ideal for students and young engineers based in Northern Ireland.

This year’s programme is very broad and run by a diverse panel of international industry and academic experts. 12 tutorials organised in 3 parallel streams address a variety of topics from MIMO in Radar Applications to Passive SAR/ISAR imaging:
