This technology is already being used, as Imsar
's Nanosar and Leonardo systems can import the imagery that they gather into programs such as Google Earth.
First introduced in September 2017, the NSP-5 ER enhances the innovative functionality of IMSAR's NSP-5 product line into an extended range, high-resolution imager for higher and faster aircraft.
IMSAR is a world leader in miniature Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) technology and providing our customers with high performing radar solutions that are smaller, lighter, require less power, and are more affordable than typical radar systems.ISD is a US-based, Veteran-Owned Small Business (VOSB) that specializes in airborne and ground systems engineering, logistics, and management services to both government and commercial industries
With a much smaller size, weight, and power (SWaP) footprint, IMSAR's SAR systems provide this capability on smaller platforms than previous possible, much smaller.
The 'ER' in the name represents 'extended range.' The NSP-5 ER leverages the innovative functionality of IMSAR's NSP-5 product line into an extended range high-resolution imager.
This technology powered IMSAR's previously announced family of collision avoidance radar designed for the commercial Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) market.
IMSAR LLC is a privately owned research, development, and manufacturing company located in Springville, UT, that specializes in lightweight, low-power synthetic aperture radar devices and radar image processing.
On the sensor front, Imsar
has come up with the Nanosar, which by being able to fit inside the fuselage of the Boeing Scaneagle drone, must be amongst the smallest synthetic aperture radars available.
Touted as the world's smallest synthetic aperture radar (Sar), the Nanosar, developed by Insitu and Imsar
, has been flight-tested on Boeing's ScanEagle drone.
