About us

The South African Radar Interest Group (SARIG) is a non-profit organisation established in 2008 to further the cause of radar in South Africa. Organisations from all over South Africa, including industry, research councils and university join hands to foster the future of radar as a technology that makes a difference in our country. With applications in many aspects of our lives, ranging from automotive radar, through improving your golf swing, to protecting the airspace of our beautiful country, radar has truly become a pervasive technology. However, in South Africa, the technology is not so well known and to defend its future SARIG intends to help by educating, opening up opportunities and spreading the word.
