Target Centric Surveillance

However, in the last 15 years, a number of authorities have found a deficit in the rate of fundamental advance in radar applications.

In this presentation, Dr Oswald identifies a basis for this deficit in the relative lack of focus on the radar targets, and on the need to acquire all the information that radio interrogation can provide. The changes he advocates and the products he describes depend on low cost electronics and high-capacity computing, both of which have become available in the last decade. He illustrates the advantages of an approach, known as Holographic Radar, in which more precise and comprehensive target intelligence is obtained, and which now forms the basis for a scalable range of radar sensors.
