Radar systems are experiencing considerable technology disruption in the rapidly changing electromagnetic battlespace. Active electronically scanned arrays, ultra-wideband technology, and cognitive radar systems present a new design and test challenges.
Explore the trends that will influence the future of radar systems and examine NI’s software-defined, FPGA-based approach to radar design and test.
In this webinar, learn how NI's modular platform can help you:
  • Design and prototype cognitive radar systems
  • Perform parametric measurements and analysis to test radar components
  • Validate system-level radar performance with real-time, closed-loop target simulation
