Radar technology and its significance

The battlefield scenario is continuously changing with sophisticated emerging technologies and therefore the operational environment of modern radar systems is becoming increasingly more complex. Stealthy, long-range, high altitude, high speed, manoeuvering targets, intense jamming environment, large fluctuations of radar cross-section with small change of aspect angle of targets, pose challenges for efficient detection, tracking, measuring,

Radar technology has greatly evolved since its development, now serving many different commercial and military applications on the ground, in the air, and at sea.

Radar originally was developed to meet the needs of the military services, and it continues to have critical applications for national defence purposes.
