Author Affiliations +
Goleta has been developing low-cost and lite-weight MMW SAR / MTI radars for small UAS applications. Initial models of two different radars have been built, the LUAVR and the LCLPR. The current LUAVR (Lite-weight UAV radar) configuration weighs in at 18-lbs and the first LCLPR version (Low-Cost Low-Power Radar) weighs in at a little under 2-lbs. Initial testing was done from the roof of a van simulating a low flying UAV. Currently the LUAVR is flying in an ultra-lite as part of a UAS demonstration system. The system is comprised of both airborne and ground segments with a data link connecting the two. SAR and MTI Imagery have been generated.
