Abstract
Developers have been increasingly successful at installing SAR systems on small UAVs. Within that domain, there is a continuous drive to make systems smaller and cheaper in order to minimize the value of assets placed at risk. We would therefore like to reduce the SAR system hardware to the minimal complement required to form a useful image. As inertial navigation/motion units can signicantly add to platform size, weight, and cost, developing data-adaptive approaches to form useful imagery with minimal navigational inputs is desirous. This paper outlines a challenge problem to focus research eorts towards that end.
