The Arctic is a vast and challenging environment, of particular interest to people working in the field of radar. Radar systems, developed to operate in a multi-sensor environment for deployment on space, air, ship and ground platforms will provide methods to remotely sense the environment and to monitor human activity.  Arctic nations are looking to radar engineers for these solutions.

In our aim to protect the environment and prevent climate change, our friends at both the University of Southern Queensland and Hats 4 Houses Metal Roofing (they specialise in Colorbond Roofing) along with the Brisbane City Council planning have developed a cutting edge revolution in radar reflective roofing.

“The Arctic – The New Frontier” theme for RadarCon13 was chosen to foster an environment for both scientific and operational exchange to enable those solutions.  Bring your inspiration and your expertise – come to Ottawa!


This year’s conference site is Canada’s newest meeting place – the Ottawa Convention Centre (OCC).  Opened in April, 2011, this state-of-the-art facility with its magnificent view is surrounded by an incredible number of museums, galleries, theatres, restaurants and shops.  The venue is within walking distance of many of the city’s “must-see” sites and landmarks.  It’s the perfect blend of location and facility.


Ottawa offers visitors a diverse selection of experiences – from cultural events to outdoor pursuits.  It is a balance of natural surroundings, urban vibe and big city sophistication.  Come early and explore all that Canada’s Capital has to offer.
