Delivering real-time, actionable intelligence
in day, night and all-weather conditions
Enabling multi-INT, all-weather ISR capabilities normally found on larger, more expensive platforms.
SAR/MTI/CCD Radar Data
Advanced, low-SWaP, multi-mode radar in a protected weatherized pod.
Coherent Change Detection
CCD helps discover surface disturbances more effectively than EO or IR alone.
Wide-area search modes
Ideal for maritime patrol, force protection and counter-trafficking missions.

All-weather, high-quality, multi-mode radar
• Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)
• Moving Target Indicator (MTI)
• Coherent Change Detection (CCD)
Multiple radar search modes
• Stripmap – Monitors a swath of ground parallel to the direction of flight.
• Spot light – Monitors a selected area of ground while UAS flies past or around it.
• Wide Area – Monitors the large area within the radar’s FoV for potential targets of interest.
Wide-area search modes
• Ground Moving Target Indicator (GMTI)
• Dismount Moving Target Indicator (DMTI)
• Maritime Moving Target Indicator (MMTI)
• High Value Target (HVT) mode
Developed and produced by IMSAR. Integrated and tested in collaboration between Insitu and IMSAR.
