Microwave Engineering and Electro-magnetics are key technology areas. Many of the modern day electronic gadgets and devices owe their existence to some derivative of electromagnetics and microwave engineering. Radio sets & radio broadcasting, televisions & real time video transmission through satellites, speed monitoring radars to space borne imaging radars, sophisticated avionics to what has become a necessity of contemporary times, cellular communications all stem from advancement in microwave engineering.
Historically, it was the advancement in radar development during Second World War that substantiated the potential of microwave engineering. As the products evolved through the corridors of time, technologies associated with this sphere of engineering became pivotal in imparting cutting edge to number of military and civilian equipment. The Wireless Communications and Radar track of IBCAST offers a broad coverage of topics related to RF and microwave technology making it a premier event in this area for scientific and educational community in the country. Our endeavor is to promote research in this key technology area and bring academia and industry closer to bridge this technology gap.
This track also has a unique feature of microwave technology coverage related to civil and military radar. Topics related to systems and applications are covered such as waveform generation; radar signal processing; antenna systems; radar imaging and object classification etc. Another salient feature of this year's activity is a special session on "Multifunction Phased Array Radar Design Challenges".
High quality papers reporting on novel solutions on the following topics are encouraged:
