Abstract
NuSAR (Naval Research Laboratory Unmanned Synthetic Aperture Radar) is a sensor developed under the ONRfunded FEATHAR (Fusion, Exploitation, Algorithms, and Targeting for High-Altitude Reconnaissance) program. FEATHAR is being directed and executed by the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in conjunction with the Space Dynamics Laboratory (SDL). FEATHAR's goal is to develop and test new tactical sensor systems specifically designed for small manned and unmanned platforms (payload weight < 50 lbs). NuSAR is a novel dual-band (L- and X-band) SAR capable of a variety of tactically relevant operating modes and detection capabilities. Flight test results will be described for narrow and wide bandwidth and narrow and wide azimuth aperture operating modes.
