Broad areas of sensor application for radar technology

New electronic components and ingenious instrument designs have made sensors even more powerful and opened ever broader areas of application for radar technology. Frequency ranges that could not be realised just a few years ago now promise a solution to many of today's challenges. Yet it is difficult for the average user to recognise the advantages of the various technologies and benefit from them to the fullest extent possible

 

Take note

  • New components and ingenious instrument designs have made sensors even more powerful.
  • Frequency ranges for radar that could not be realised just a few years ago now promise a solution to many challenges
  • Every frequency has both advantages and disadvantages and the entire application must be taken into consideration when considering the most appropriate choice.
