A contemporary combat aircraft is needed to strike surface targets on the ground or at sea in addition to intercepting hostile aircraft.
Such an aircraft’s radar must be capable of carrying out these specific military missions. Because the criteria for each mission vary, this is not an easy task.
Different types of radar waveforms are necessary due to the various ranges, accuracies, and rates at which the radar data is needed, the impact of the environment like land or sea clutter, and the kind of target like land features or moving aircraft or different pulse widths and pulse repetition frequencies.
Additionally, a suitable signal processing technique is needed to retrieve the specific data necessary for each military mission. Therefore, multimode radar is required for combat aircraft.
The Europe Military Radar Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2027.
The PADR programme for defence research in Europe has begun a new endeavour. The CROWN project will concentrate on a European active electronically scanned array for military applications that combines radar, communications, and electronic warfare capabilities.
Under the bids for “Electromagnetic Spectrum Dominance” under the EDA-managed EU Preparatory Action on Defence Research, the project, with a big budget and a short timeframe, was chosen (PADR).
The CROWN collaboration, which is led by Spain and includes a number of major business players, academic institutions, and a SME from seven EU nations.
Early last year, the consortium members, EDA, and European Commission representatives participated in the project’s official launch.
