The ongoing proliferation of next-generation missile and hypersonic threats, to include increasing examples of UAV and UAS threats, leadership across the Armed Services is poised to leverage advanced radar and sensor solutions that address these future challenges. The current buildup of radar technologies along the Pacific AOR illustrates a need to rapidly bolster our current technological standing to keep at pace with threats, and IDGA’s senior-level faculty will speak to how ongoing radar and sensor technology developments will meet these emerging threats.

Leadership across the Services have routed radar development to focus on advancing small target detection, sensor fusion, cognitive radar, SWAP-C, autonomous assets, survivability and resiliency to enable improved mission success. Our previous iteration offered senior-level understanding across these trends, and our 2020 summit will revisit and update them, while also focusing on new areas such as AI and ML for improved radar, ongoing service-wide sensor efforts, hypersonic detection and more.
