Profile


Clem Robertson – Product Capability Manager

“Radars are often perceived as a complicated & expensive solution only suitable for niche applications but things are changing. Radars are becoming more cost effective due to the significant amount of R&D investment in the automotive market. This is opening up opportunities for small size, weight, power and cost (SWAPc) radar sensor solutions capable of being used for commercial, industrial, medical and consumer applications.

We’ve built our business on radar & communications technology, and offer design support throughout the product lifecycle. This includes specifying the most suitable radar technology or designing a bespoke system through to product approvals and manufacturing.”

Client Impact

Millimetre-wave Radar System

Plextek has been working at mm-wave frequencies (above 30 GHz) for some years now. At these extremely high frequencies (EHF), systems often require highly directional antennas that have narrow beamwidths and can be manufactured in a cost-effective…

Micro Radar Sensor

Our major strength is the ability to bring together specialist expertise across many disciplines to engineer something very special. Plextek’s current micro-radar project is an excellent example of this. The project was funded through Autonomous Systems…
