For 2017, the IEEE Radar Conference returns west after eight years and arrives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest for the first time. The conference timing coincides with the centennial anniversary of incorporation of Boeing; our theme, “Building on a Century of Innovation,” unites the past and future. Looking back, we highlight seminal radar developments including the co-invention of Pulse Doppler Radar, advances in civil aviation, and the world’s first digitally-processed Synthetic Aperture Radar image from space. Looking forward, we envision an exciting week of exploring the latest developments in research, development and deployment of radar systems for applications from local indoor monitoring to spaceborne remote sensing.
The recently-updated Westin Seattle Hotel, located in the heart of downtown Seattle, is an ideal venue for the conference. In addition to providing the formal conference areas and functions, ample space ensures opportunities for the camaraderie amongst attendees that is a hallmark of this conference. For convenience, the hotel has light-rail service to the airport and is a short walk to sites of interest such as the waterfront, Pioneer Square and Pike Place.
This conference will be a continuation of the annual IEEE radar series (formerly the IEEE National Radar conference). These conferences cover the many disciplines that span the applications of modern radar systems. This includes systems-level through subsystem and component technologies, antennas, and signal processing (deterministic and adaptive). The scope includes systems architectures of monostatic, bistatic and multistatic, and ground-based, airborne, and spaceborn realizations.
Please clear your calendars for 8-12 May, 2017 and join us in the Emerald City.
