Known as birthplace of the country, the dynamic city of brotherly love is also well-known as a science place of firsts. From Ben Franklin’s elementary electricity experiments to ENIAC’s far more advanced use of electricity, innovators have come to Philadelphia for centuries and the city has rewarded them.

Philadelphia is home to the oldest annual awards for scientific achievement, the Franklin Institute of Philadelphia’s gold medals; over a hundred recipients have gone on to win Nobel prizes. The region is also home to many companies whose products have for over 50 years shaped what the radar community acknowledges as some of the world’s most advanced radar technologies. Join us in this city of science and participate in advancing radar science by participating in the IEEE Radar 2016 conference appropriately themed "Enabling Technologies for Advances in Radar.”

Original papers describing new technologies and techniques that significantly advance radar system capabilities for ground penetration, land, ocean, air, space and astronomy applications are welcome. Innovative system applications in air-defense, anti-missile, imaging, and mobile are encouraged. Technology areas such as radar, wideband, MIMO, and antenna signal processing, hardware and devices, materials, lasers, scattering, big data processing, architectures, multi-function operation, multi-site coordination and more are appropriate. In addition to the presentation of contributed technical papers in high quality oral and poster sessions, the committee has planned a conference agenda that includes invited talks from leading experts within our community, an excellent selection of tutorials, exhibits, and informal gatherings for colleagues to share ideas.
