Radar and Measurement Technology

Cutting-edge, custom-made radars, RF systems and measurement technologies

Radar ScreensSPC has over 25 years of experience in the design, development, and use of radar systems. Our main focus is on instrumentation radar systems, high-speed data collection systems, and radar data processing systems for government and private industry. Customers have included the U.S. military services, U.S. Department of Transportation, NASA, and the French Space Agency (CNES).

Building on years of intimate knowledge of radar applications and system design, SPC can build custom radars or use existing assets for nearly any measurement campaign. We have provided five generations of state-of-the-art instrumentation radars for the radar cross-section (RCS) community, and performed measurement services in frequency ranges from 50 MHz to 100 GHz.

Our scientists, engineers, and technicians provide customers the following:
