Offshore Wind Turbine Radar Interference Mitigation Webinar Series: Marine Navigation Radar

You are here

July 13, 2020 11:00AM to 1:00PM EDT

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.

Marine Navigation Radar
Monday, July 13, 2020, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. ET

This webinar will feature a moderated panel with representatives from the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), BOEM, Ørsted, and Responsible Offshore Development Reliance to discuss marine navigation radar issues, existing studies, and hear perspectives from a wind developer and a mariner on the issues.

Register for the webinar by July 11. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
