Passive Radar & Multistatics Focus Days 2021

Dear Friends,

Ordinarily the PCL Focus Days series would take place in Spring/Summer 2021 at Fraunhofer FHR in Wachtberg, Germany. However, owing to continued global lock-down measures and uncertainty surrounding travel, we have decided to organise a lunch-to-lunch virtual event.

The 2021 event has a slightly broader scope to reflect recent research activities on cooperative multistatic sensing – in addition to the flourishing core field of Passive Radar. Registration is mandatory, as participation is restricted to NATO and selected Partner countries.

The intention of this lunch-to-lunch virtual event is to bring together armed forces, research institutes, and industries who work in the area of multi-/bi-static and passive radar systems to share their experience and discuss new approaches for future systems.

As always, we look forward to your participation. We invite to register on the link by Friday 23rd April 2021.

MS-Teams is used as the video conferencing system.
