Event presenter Fernando Gonzalez says the aim is to show the impact of this pervasive technology as well as promoting careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The presenter is the national chapter president of the international Association of Old Crows, is a deputy president of the SA Division of Engineers Australia, and also is a Squadron Leader in the Royal Australian Air Force.
"Radar has been a part of our lives for over 100 years," SQNLDR Gonzalez said. "Among the earliest radar technologists were the military, codenamed Ravens during World War II. Later they were affectionately renamed Old Crows."
SQNLDR Gonzalez will bring to life the principles and practices of radar technologies in use today all over the world.
Joining him will be a team of young technology mentors from eLabtronics, specialists in designing and programming microchips.
"We are looking forward to a fun, informative and fully interactive experience using highly visual and tactile exhibits," SQNLDR Gonzalez said.
