Offshore Wind Turbine Radar Interference Mitigation Webinar Series: Long-Range Radar

You are here

November 30, 2020 11:00AM to 1:00PM EST

The Wind Turbine Radar Interference Mitigation Working Group—a consortium of federal agencies composed of DOE, the U.S. Department of Defense, the Federal Aviation Administration, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), and the Department of Homeland Security—invite you to attend a series of virtual webinars to discuss offshore wind turbine radar interference mitigation strategies and research needs for offshore wind development that may impact sensitive radar systems.

Long-Range Radar
11 a.m. – 1 p.m. ET

This webinar will feature briefings on long-range radar systems, potential offshore wind turbine interactions, mitigation solutions, and address future research opportunities and partnerships.

Register for the webinar by November 27.
