Traditional radar systems almost exclusively employ beam scanning through a volume of space to detect targets followed by determination of their location. The holographic radar concept takes a very different approach dispensing with scanning entirely. Instead holographic radar looks in all directions all of the time. This leads not just to excellent detection performance but also provides echoes rich in target specific information. This talk will introduce the concept of Holographic Radar together with the supporting architecture and technology It will then move on to show how micro-drones, that fall into the challenging category of ‘low, slow and small RCS ’, can be both detected and classified.
