Innovating With Radar – ATI Courses

The use of increasingly sophisticated Radar technology today is pushing the limits of what used to be unimaginable.  Adaptive Cruise Control, is just one example of how Radars can be used in new and innovative ways.  If you would like to learn more about radar so you can innovate new uses for radar, consider taking the upcoming ATI course Radar – Basic Principles.  This course is intended for scientists, engineers, and technical managers who require an introduction to the basic principles and techniques used in modern radar systems.  This is a new 3-day ATI course which replaces previous ATI Courses Radar 101 and Radar 201, which are no longer being offered.  You can learn more about Radar – Basic Principles, and register for it here.

What The Heck is Astropolitics? – ATI Courses

Have you ever wondered ……“What the Heck is Astropolitics?”  Me too, and since ATI will soon be offering a course on the subject, I attempt to answer this question in this week’s ATI blog.  Please take a look, and you may find that one of the topics addressed by Astropolitics is truly compelling, in fact, it is out of this world.  You can learn more about a Astropolitics Free Session, and Astropolitics – ATI Courses at these links.  We hope to see you at one or both of these upcoming events.

There are so many applications of Acoustics in every day life.  In fact, scientists are coming up with new applications every day.  Many people think of the most popular applications of Acoustics like Ranging and Imaging.  If you think the only applications of Acoustics are Sonar and Ultra Sound Imaging, you would be so wrong.  Consider taking the ATI course Acoustic Fundamentals, Measurements, and Applications to learn about ways that Acoustics can be used in applications that may never have occurred to you before.
