Early Warning Radar Sustainment

Early Warning Radar Sustainment
Virtual Tech Discovery Event

22, 24, and 26 June 2020

Summary:

AF CyberWorx hosted a virtual tech discovery event where government participants defined existing challenges and learned about new capabilities to address those challenges from early warning radar industry experts. Stakeholders sought the best ways to extend the serviceable life of the radar systems with state-of-the-art technology to improve users’ ability to fulfill their mission.

Proposed Solutions:

Participants explored current form, fit, and function advancements, remote management capabilities, sensor technology, power generation, and survivability/maintainability in extreme environments among other topics. AF CyberWorx led the government participants through a human-centered design session to more accurately and definitively identify the users, their needs and challenges, and the desired capabilities from the users’ perspectives.

Problem Statement:

How might we be able to sustain the early warning capability for at least the next 20 years?
