9th Conference on Radio-Elecronics Devices and Systems

The 9th Scientific Conference on Radio-Elecronics Devices and Systems was held on 14-16 November this year, at the Warszawianka Congress Center, in Jachranka near Warsaw, as a part of the 2017 Radiolocation Days. The three-day event fuses 2 major radiolocation and radio-electronics conferences in Poland, and this year edition of Radiolocation Days was held under the official patronage of the Polish Minister of National Defense, Antoni Macierewicz.

The Radio-Elecronics Devices and Systems Conference is a scientific congress organized as a platform to discuss in more detail major technological issues concerning radiolocation systems, and to strengthen the cooperation between national scientific centers, R&D units and the national industry.

This year, the scope of discussed topics included:
•    Acoustics and acousto-electronics
•    Antennas and micro-waves
•    Use of UAV and protection against their unauthorized use
•    Biomedical electronics
•    Electromagnetic compatibility
•    Optoelectronics
•    Processing of signals and data in radio-electronics devices and systems
•    Radiolocation
•    Radio-navigation
•    Radio-electronics for space applications
•    Special devices and systems.

There were more than 100 participants, and more than 50 speeches were given by the representatives of Polish universities, scientific and technological centers, among all, from the Military Academy of Technology, Warsaw University of Technology, Gdańsk University of Technology, Wrocław University of Technology, the Military Institute of Aviation Medicine, the Military Institute of Armament Technology and PIT-RADWAR S.A.

Like every year, the Conference was an occasion to launch the competition for the best conference presentation open to young researchers. 3 prizes and one distinction were awarded.

The winning presentation concerned “Modern FPGA systems for radiolocation uses on the example of adaptive filter module” by Michal Knioła from the Military Academy of Technology.

The second award for the speech on “Selected issues regarding the design of combat micro air vehicles” went to Michał Kuc from the Military Institute of Armament Technology.

The third winner was Marcin Góralczyk from Warsaw University of Technology, and his speech on “the State of aluminum nitride microwave elements technologies”.

The additionally honored work was presented by Paweł Brzoski and concerned “GNSS-based relative positioning for Proba-3 mission”.

The conference was organized by PIT-RADWAR S.A., the Military Academy of Technology, the Military Institute of Armament Technology and the Armament Policy Department of the Ministry of National Defense.
 
It was sponsored by the following companies: AM Technologies, CST AG, National Instruments, Aeronautics Group and Mex Technologies.

The official media patronage of the event was provided by Polska Zbrojna monthly and Defence24 portal.
