Military Radar in the Age of UASs and Hypersonics: FY20 DoD BUDGET HIGHLIGHTS

Military Radar in the Age of UASs and Hypersonics: FY20 DoD BUDGET HIGHLIGHTS

The global threat landscape is changing. In between the proliferation of UAVs/small drones and the looming threat of hypersonic weapons, advancing radar technology across the military is critical, perhaps now more than ever.

Ahead of the upcoming Military Radar Summit this January, we took a look at the DoD’s FY20 budget to identify where the services are investing when it comes to advancing small target detection, sensor fusion, cognitive radar, SWAP-C, autonomous assets, survivability and resiliency to enable improved mission success. DOWNLOAD our latest Budget Highlights infographic to see what we found out. 

What you’ll learn:

  • 2020 investment priorities & budget breakdown for the MDA, Army, Navy, Marines & more!
  • The latest military radar acquisitions & contracts
  • An overview of the key projects that will define the DoD’s military radar strategies now and for years to come
