    Photonics and nanotechnologies are emerging revolutionary technologies that will provide a revolution in the sectors of sensors and radar systems. SELEX Sistemi Integrati intends to face this evolution as a leader by pro-actively supporting and developing its state-of-the-art. One century after the first RADAR ¿idea¿ we registered the Nanotechnology Optical Detection And Ranging (NODAR) trademark. Such NODAR, by including both photonic and nanotechnologies, aims to implement multi-functional, multi-role, multi-domain sensors, as well as adaptive, flexible, knowledge-based sensors. NODAR requires pro-active studies and developments on: nanotechnology vacuum tube amplifiers (TX reverse nano triode): wide bandwidth Tx-Rx optical beam-forming network by means of optical modulator, combiner, analogue optical receive and programmable true time delay; broadband photonic analogue to digital converters; thermal management and interconnection by means of carbon nanotubes; and nanotechnology infrared and chemical state-of-the-art sensors.

    Active phased array antennas in state-of-the-art radars, adopt many high power amplifiers. High power transmit-receive modules are assembled in dense electronic environments and have to cope with severe environmental operative condition. Radar state-of-the-art systemic signal processing requires growing and enormous power calculation in order to obtain unprecedented hard real-time performances as well as implementing adaptive knowledge-based algorithms. Unfortunately, the present steady growth of the micro-processors performance are reaching a saturation point due to the approaching limit of miniaturizations. Present and future active phased array antennas and signal processors have large and increasing heat dissipation problems. Nanotechnologies are emerging as enabling technologies that will provide a revolution in the sectors of sensors and radar systems. These innovative technologies could enable new solutions and improve weight, size, speed, power consumption, efficiency, and so on. In addition, the nanotechnologies could solve the increasing heat dissipation problems by adopting Carbon NanoTubes CNT ropes or arrays for thermal management and interconnection.

  • Ambient vibration testing of bridges by microwave interferometer

    Recent progress in radar techniques and systems led to the development of an interferometric radar suitable to the application in dynamic testing and vibration monitoring of civil engineering structures. The main characteristic of the new radar system is the possibility of simultaneously measuring the (static or dynamic) displacement of several points of a structure with high sensitivity. This describes the major characteristics of the microwave interferometer and its application to ambient vibration testing of full-scale bridges. View full abstract»

  • Phased array technology in Australia

    Australia has been developing and fielding phased array appUcations since the early 1950s. The application areas range from radio astronomy and atmospheric sciences, through over-the-horizon radar (OTHR), surface wave, microwave ship, and airborne systems. Given Australia's unique geographical size, position, single continent, and national identity, it is not surprising that much of this effort has focused on long range over-the-horizon technology both for environmental observation and surveillance of the extensive land and maritime regions of national interest and responsibility. This discussion will draw focus on just a few of the historical and current programs finishing with an overview of the current application of actiive phased array developments for ship defence.
