Radar: 'Outpacing the threat' with NORAD
“Working with the customer is essential. Through customers, industry can evaluate what is needed and develop products to meet customer’s expectations.”
The customers in question? The world’s militaries. Brian Lihani is the Chief of the Radar Warning Branch at NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) HQ, a binational and combined organisation co-led by the United States and Canada. The NORAD Agreement establishes three primary missions for NORAD: they are Aerospace Warning, Aerospace Control, and Maritime Warning for North America.
In this article, Lihani explains how a “system-of-systems” approach to radar development is helping NORAD to patrol the skies and "outpace the threat".
