Abstract
IMFRAD is a basically new airborne reconnaissance sensor which is particularly effective in the detection of tactical targets concealed in foliage or located in open terrain. Operating at long radar wavelengths, IMFRAD is inherently a low data rate system which generates real-time imagery in a rectified format, making it ideally suited for automatic data interpretation, automatic change detection, and automatic cueing of high resolution sensors. Because of its ability to penetrate foliage, IMFRAD significantly increases the probability of target acquisition in realistic scenarios, and, in addition, improves aircraft survivability by allowing the use of low risk flight profiles.
