The frequency range of the ICs is well suited for high-resolution radar
imaging applications due to its short wavelength, relatively low atmospheric attenuation, and ability to penetrate debris.
Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, successfully completed a two-day Preliminary Design Review for a synthetic aperture radar satellite payload that will provide military commanders in the field with timely, high-resolution radar
imagery of the earth's surface -- regardless of weather conditions or time of day.
The original specification for this high-resolution radar
was very demanding, and intended to give the modernised aircraft an ability to fly attack mission in all weathers, delivering smart weapons.
SAR is the second payload to be developed by the ORS Office and will produce high-resolution radar
imagery of the earth's surface, even during darkness or inclement weather.
Furthermore, Infoterra holds the exclusive commercial exploitation rights for the high-resolution radar
satellite TerraSAR-X, and plays a leading role in geo-information services within the European GMES initiative of the EC and ESA.
As part of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement, NSSL provides AER access to high-resolution radar
data across the continental United States.
Advanced high-resolution radar
can monitor activity from distances of more than 50 miles.
For example, high-resolution radar
systems now can use fewer parallel channels to digitize the same bandwidth, enabling significantly reduced board size and power dissipation.
It will use high-resolution radar
that can observe Earth during night and day, under all weather conditions.
The use of Intermap's elevation data and high-resolution radar
imagery will enable Sinar Mas Forestry to manage its pulpwood resource more efficiently.
Extremely low RF signature at high data rates is an essential requirement for synergestic performance of a high-resolution radar
with advanced content delivery capability.
Launched aboard NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter June 18 and activated July 8, the system, known as Mini-RF, will take high-resolution radar
imagery of permanently shaded regions of the moon to attempt to detect ice in areas hidden from other instruments.
