The series of IEEE National Radar Conferences, in conjunction with the International Radar Conference, has grown to be the most important radar conference series in the world - bringing together innovators, leaders, and users from the civil, space, and military communities to address important issues and share the most recent advances in radar. Join us in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the Wyndham Philadelphia at Franklin Plaza hotel on April 26-29, 2004 and enjoy history and culture while we explore together the latest radar developments and the innovative technologies on which they are based.

The theme for this year's conference is Innovative Radar Technologies - Expanding System Capabilities. Radar has always been a multidisciplinary science, drawing from developments and understanding in materials, mathematics, signal and data processing, physics, optics, and system architecture. New understanding of materials and processes and new analytic techniques backed up by upward spiraling computational capability is expanding radar capability - putting large radars into space, and small radars on automobiles for collision avoidance. Dramatic developments in the subsystems of radar: antenna, transmitter, receiver, and processor lead to new configurations and new capabilities such as foliage and ground penetration and ultra-wideband systems. At the same time innovative technology provides more challenges for radar detection: e.g. reduced radar cross-section. This conference will serve as a forum to exchange ideas on research and applications. In addition to the presentation of contributed papers in high quality oral and poster technical sessions, the committee has planned a conference agenda that includes invited talks from leading experts within the radar community, an excellent selection of tutorials and exhibits, and interesting keynote and banquet speakers.

Philadelphia is not only the birthplace of America but has been a driving force in science and engineering innovation. This innovation is represented by Benjamin Franklin's accomplishments, ENIAC, the world's first digital computer, and the recent Nobel Prize laureates in Physics. In the days preceding and following the conference, attendees will have the opportunity to visit (1) historic sights such as the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and the National Constitution Center, (2) world class museums including the the Rodin Museum, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Franklin Institute Science Museum, and the Academy of Natural Sciences, (3) The Kimmel Center, (4) attend concerts, theatres, and sporting events, and (5) dine in some of the world's finest restaurants.

Come join us for the 2004 IEEE Radar Conference in Philadelphia.
