The article reflects that the radar systems are important in modern warfare strategies and also in commercial applications. It is said that radar technology is used in a wide array of military applications, but also in any number of non-defense-related ones. It is also said that analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and digital-to-analog converters (DACs) are taking on more of the signal generation and analysis in radar systems.
