Tactical Multi-INT Radar
NSP-5
Tactical Multi-INT Radar

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.
