EDI CON USA 2017 to Hold a European Radar Summit

The Electronic Design Innovation Conference and Exhibition (EDI CON) USA, will be adding the European Radar Summit to its conference program this year. EDI CON is an industry event that brings together RF/microwave and high-speed digital design engineers and system integrators. The 2017 event is scheduled to be held at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, MA from September 11 - 13, 2017.

EDI CON USA 2017 is building on its inaugural 2016 conference with multiple parallel tracks covering RF/microwave, high-speed digital and EMC/EMI topics. The conference will feature extended tutorials and short courses on the first day, followed by technical sessions, invited talks, workshops, panels and exhibition from the next day. 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 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.

Some of the planned papers include:

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

This year, EDI CON USA is the only RF/microwave industry conference and exhibition in the continental USA, and the largest high-speed technical conference on the US East Coast. There will be a number of networking opportunities on the exhibit floor, and attendees can enjoy a welcome reception and happy hour.
