The IEEE Queensland Section and its Aerospace and Electronic Systems Chapter, in conjunction with the 2018 International Conference on Radar (Radar ’18), are proud to present a public lecture by two leading authorities on the Jindalee Operational Radar Network (JORN).  Don Sinnott will present the main part of the seminar, tracing the development of Australian radar technology from World War 2 through to the establishment of JORN in 2003.  Gordon Frazer will then take up the story to outline its recent history, current status and its exciting future under the recently announced $1.2bn JORN Phase 6 upgrade.
