The 18th European Radar Conference (EuRAD 2021) will be held from the 16th to 18th February 2022 in London, UK, in the framework of the European Microwave Week 2021.
This Radar Conference is the major European event for the present status and the future trends in the field of radar research, technology, system design and applications. The EuRAD conference will bring together a global network of researchers, practitioners and institutes working on topics related to the following four areas of focus.
The Radar Sub-systems and Phenomenology topic comprises radar electromagnetic phenomenology (including radar cross section) modelling and characterisation, antenna design (simulation and measurements) including innovations and methods in antenna characterisation, active or passive phased arrays and transceiver technologies as well as reconfigurable front-ends and sub-systems.
The Radar Signal and Data Processing topic aims to attract innovative research contributions on digital beamforming and other multiantenna processing techniques (including MIMO, multi-static and networked), interferometry, polarimetry, tomography, waveform diversity, detection, tracking and target localisation, high-resolution radar signal processing techniques, classification, robust multidimensional signal processing techniques and compressive sensing. Submissions are also expected in the use of machine learning, deep learning and adaptive techniques for radar.
The Radar Architecture and Systems topic incorporates the latest development of sensors from the classical designs such as CW, over-the-horizon, passive, noise and polarimetric radar, up to the most complex and sophisticated architectures, incorporated in, for example, remotely piloted aircraft, multi-sensor and multifunctional systems, UWB systems and millimetre-wave and THz radars. New tools for radar simulation and system performance modelling, model-based design, as well as new trends in cognitive, bio-inspired and software defined radars are encompassed.
The Radar Applications topic encompasses various domains such as automotive radars, defence and security, ground/space radar, remote sensing, subsurface and ground penetrating radar, surveillance, traffic control, as well as other radar uses, related to medical, industrial, and system diagnostic applications. Novel applications benefiting from multi-static radar systems, passive radar, short range and near-field radars, bio-medical imaging, millimetre-wave and THz technology or any other new emerging radar application are also included. A transversal focus is also expected on the re-emerging areas of electronic surveillance and countermeasures for radar applications also in relation to the growth of the internet-of-things.
