INTELLIGENCE IS EVERYTHING: SAR

As a contributing technology in many geospatial intelligence efforts, the advantages of SAR are well known. Using energy in the radio spectrum not visible to the human eye, synthetic aperture radar systems use their own source of illumination to reveal, with equal clarity during day or night, how the target area looks. Due to their unique wavelength characteristics, the radio waves used in synthetic aperture radar are not obscured by atmospheric obstructions and thus can see through cloud cover, smoke, fog and many other weather conditions. Because of the nature of the synthetic aperture of SAR, altitude and distance do not prevent SAR systems from capturing high-resolution images. With these advantages unique to SAR, the NSP-5 Ku is an indispensable part of any advanced sensor system.

MULTI-INT CAPABILITIES

Every year, technology continues to shrink in size yet grow in capability. World-class imaging radar technology is no different. While being the smallest of its kind, the NSP-5 Ku packs some very powerful capabilities.
SYNTHETIC APERTURE RADAR

SAR is an all-weather, day or night, imaging system used to generate high-resolution imagery of the ground from an aerial platform.

MOVING TARGET INDICATOR

MTI identifies and tracks moving targets by sending out radar pulses and analyzing the Doppler shift of the returned signals.

COHERENT CHANGE DETECTION

CCD processes two SAR images of the same scene taken at different times to create a new image highlighting the differences.

MARITIME MONITORING

SAR signal returns from water and the signal returns from targets provide a high-contrast, easily discernable identification.
