Technical Training on CML-R Rader Simulation Platform began on Monday at Department of Research and Innovation in Yangon.
The 10-day training till the 1st of August is to promote high tech industry of the country. The training is part of the MoU signed between Myanmar’s Department of Research and Innovation and Beijing Institute of Radio Measurement (BIRM). The 5-year MoU on China-Myanmar National Joint Laboratory was signed in 2015.
Director General, Department of Research and Innovation (DRI), Win Khaing Moe said “We’ve cooperated with Beijing Institute of Radio Measurement (BIRM) on 3 sectors … Satellite Communication, Micorelectronics and Radar. We built Satellite Communication and Micorelectronics laboratory. This training is to build a radar laboratory, and courses cover radar concept and others with theory and practical especially for weather radar. We have plans to cooperate with Department of Meteorology and Hydrology.”
BIRM specializes in research, design, manufacture and service of electronic information systems. Experts from BIRM and Department of Meteorology and Hydrology are sharing knowledge in this training.
Vice Director, Beijing Institute of Radio Measurement (BIRM), Du Xin said “This time we have all the equipments of joint laboratory to Myanmar and this time we will focus on training on Radar System. Also we will talk about Radar Technical application for Myanmar in the future”.
About 20 trainees including teachers from universities joined this Technical Training.
Trainee, Dr. Nann Laung Kham said “We are operating communication field at the university - this training would be a help for us. I will share what I get to learn from this technical training with my colleagues and students.”
It is also learnt that Department of Research and Innovation (DRI) under the Ministry of Education and Beijing Institute of Radio Measurement (BIRM) will sign another MoU on “X band Phased Array Weather Radar Joint Research Project” on the 30th of July.
