Next Generation Multi-mode Remote Sensing Radar

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Next Generation Multi-mode Remote Sensing Radar

The objective of this work is to demonstrate a new generation of digital beamforming synthetic aperture instrument technology (DBSAR-2) which has the potential of providing high quality data in support of several disciplines in Earth and planetary sciences and enable future spaceborne and airborne NASA missions.

This effort leverages ESTO and SBIR investments aimed at enabling fully polarimetric digital beamforming multimode radar, high resolution (wideband) measurements, and advanced digital radar waveform synthesis and processing. The effort will build upon the technology path set out by the Digital Beamforming Synthetic Aperture Radar (DBSAR) and leverage three new developments to implement the most advanced polarimetric Digital Beamforming L-Band radar architecture for airborne applications.
