The first Radar has been patented almost 110 years ago. Meanwhile the applications became numerous and the system concepts have been adopted to the available technologies for the special application requirements. Typical examples are the pulse Radar, Synthetic Aperture Radar, Phased Array or automotive Radar, to name only four.
In the next years the state of the art Radar system concepts will experience almost a revolution; the implementation of the technologies that are available since quite some years, mostly resulting from communication technologies, has been too long delayed. The major ideas/technologies for future Radar system concepts are: 
  • intelligent signal coding 
  • MIMO Radar 
  • digital beam-forming 
  • array imaging 
  • combination Radar x communication = RadCom 
These new technologies will allow completely new functions and applications and they can replace most of the existing system concepts. The Radars of the future will render more information, be more flexible and it will also be smaller and significantly cheaper. The presentation will explain these new technologies and show their integration for the Radar of the future.
