A small and lightweight dual-channel radar has been developed for SAR data collections. Using
standard Displaced Phase Center Antenna (DPCA) radar digital signal processing, SAR GMTI images have
been obtained. The prototype radar weighs 5-lbs and has demonstrated the extraction of ground moving
targets (GMTs) embedded in high-resolution SAR imagery data. Heretofore this type of capability has been
reserved for much larger systems such as the JSTARS. Previously, small lightweight SARs featured only a
single channel and only displayed SAR imagery. Now, with the advent of this new capability, SAR GMTI
performance is now possible for small UAV class radars.
