Webinar: Latest Technologies in Electronic Warfare with NI

Jul 1, 2020

Being able to design, prototype and test Electronic Warfare applications fast and accurately is key to Aerospace companies reaching a leading position in the global marketplace. Keeping your aerospace research or industry project on schedule and within budget, while keeping asset failure at a minimum, is a requirement you cannot miss if you want to be a player in this competitive market. Research and Test & Evaluation facilities require cutting edge technologies for emulating complex electromagnetic scenarios based on wideband multichannel acquisition and generation and real-time signal processing of RF/uW signals.

We want to share with you how we are helping companies solve the engineering challenges associated to the modern Radar and EW systems. Please join us and our partners NI and Elettronica for a live session on how Multifunctional and Cognitive sensor capabilities can be operated as software-connected solutions together with function sharing AESA antennas, to allow achieving novel and unprecedented operational capabilities in Radar EW.
