Growing advancements in radar systems benefitting in digital signal processing and to extract valuable information from the high noise levels is likely to gain traction in the radar market in the near future. Launch of new radar systems have improved the technological development, thereby enabling the countries with security issues. Multi-function radars are expected to witness growing adoption in the military base, in a bid to improve defense throughout the border.
Radar Proves Significantly Beneficial for Counting Migrating Birds: Reveals Scientists
Scientists at Cornell Lab of Ornithology, North America have leveraged the use of data from nearly 43 weather radar stations throughout North America for counting the number of birds migrating from Canada to U.S, Mexico and beyond. This new data helps in pricking on the future trends as well, along with information on the emerging problem areas. Migrants passing northern border consist of shorter migrations from Canada’s breeding grounds to the wintering grounds across U.S.
Development of New Facilities to Drive Radar Operations
Development of new radar facility enables in tracking Russian military aircraft that is approaching north of UK. The all-new £10Million Remote Radar Head facility offer important information regarding the aircraft movements across North Sea as well as QRA (Quick Reaction Alert) operation. Another company named Raytheon has developed a new facility for testing and production of its s-band radars. The products will be inclusive of next-gen SPY-6 air as well as missile defense system of Navy.
Focus on Advancing Mobile Technology to Drive Innovation in Radar
Project Soli, motion sensing device based on radar recently received approval by U.S. FCC (Federal Communications Commission) for operating at high power levels with growing application of the product to be operated aboard aircraft as well. The advanced radar is expected to cater to the demands of public interest, thereby offering innovative device control provisions by means of touchless hand gesture technology.
Development of New Radar Systems to Enhance Coverage
New types of radar systems have emerged recently with diverse characteristics that can inspect wide-ranging areas as well as stationary targets. Bismarck’s National Weather Service is taking lucrative steps for improving the weather radar coverage benefitting the western North Dakota, soon after gaps in coverage were witnessed in Watford City. The enhanced radar coverage is likely to benefit northwest and north central North Dakota.
Apart from this, Canada’s federal government is enhancing marine traffic monitoring along the B.C. (British Columbia) coast for improving safety for the ships passing through challenging and narrow waterways. Installing six new radars are expected to fill in the existing coverage gaps for risky and busy stretches of water towards Queen Charlotte Strait from Georgia Strait’s northern end. In addition, Canada is likely to witness development of a new technology – quantum radar for improving detection of the stealth aircraft. Compared to conventional radars, this new radar technology theoretically detects objects consisting of higher accuracy level.
Automobile Industry to Witness Deployment of Radar Technology in the Next-Gen Automobiles
Every new radar technology comes with innovative and advanced ideas, integrated with unique ideas for attracting customers. Automakers are installing radar sensors in automobiles since more than two decades for enabling adaptive cruise control as well as blindspot detection systems. With rapidly increasing integration of ADAS (advanced driver assistance systems) in NCAP (new car assessment program), NXP, Dutch manufacturer of automotive radar silicon recently introduced an all-new radar platform for easy and affordable installation of radar sensors. The Dutch chipmaker has taken immense efforts in working towards advancement in capabilities of future radar systems. New RDK-S32R274 platform caters to the demand of future highly-automated driving solutions.
