EDI CON USA 2017 Announces Addition of European Radar Summit

The 2nd Electronic Design Innovation Conference and Exhibition (EDI CON) USA run by Microwave Journal, will take place at the Hynes Convention Center from 11-13 September in Boston, MA. The event will bring together RF/microwave and high-speed digital design engineers and system integrators for networking, training, and learning opportunities. This year, they have announced the addition of the European Radar Summit to the conference program.

EDI CON USA 2017 will have multiple parallel tracks covering RF/microwave, high-speed digital and EMC/EMI topics. The conference features extended tutorials and short courses on Monday, September 11 followed by technical sessions, invited talks, workshops, panels and exhibition on Tuesday and Wednesday. Technical sessions focus on actionable, educational information for working engineers rather than product pitches and commercial presentations.

Organizers of RADAR technology sessions at the IEEE Phased Array Conference and the European Microwave Week Defense Forum have selected a number of papers to present at the EDI CON USA European Radar Summit on Tuesday, September 12. Led by Alfonso Farina, Selex ES-Italy retired, the session’s papers will cover topics such as conformal and phased array antennas, multi-static passive/active array radar, wide band signal processing and overall radar trends.

Planned papers include:

  • A Family of Secondary Surveillance Radars based on Conformal Antenna Array Geometries,” Massimo Angelilli, Leopoldo Infante, Paolo Pacifici, Leonardo Company S.p.A., Land and Naval Defense Electronics Division (Rome, Italy)
  • Enhanced target detection and localization by cueing in multistatic passive-active radar systems,” T. Brenner, L. Lamentowski, R. Mularzuk, PIT-RADWAR SA (Warsaw, Poland).
  • "Design Aspects for Dual-Polarized Phased Array Antennas with Low X-pol Contribution," Dennis Vollbracht, Selex-ES GmbH (Neuss, Germany)
  • Innovative Algorithm for Wide Band Digital Signal Processing in modern AESA RADAR Architecture,” Roberto Lalli, Caterina Rapisarda¸ Alessandro Manuale, Valerio Tocca, Land & Naval Defence Electronics Leonardo S.p.A. (Rome, Italy)
  • Technology Trends for RADAR,” Hans van Bezouwen and Dr. Michael Brandfass, HENSOLDT (Ulm, Germany)

EDI CON USA 2018 will be held at the Santa Clara Convention Center (Santa Clara, CA) October 17-19, 2018.
