Abstract:

A major problem faced by our warfighters utilizing a Micro Air Vehicle is its limited capability to sense combatants under non-optimal environmental conditions. The other issue is that once a combatant is identified the warfighter must personally engage the combatant exposing the warfighter to enemy fighter. The main obstacle of providing a full sensor payload package on a MAV is that the entire sensing payload has to weigh in the order of 1.5 pounds and has to fit in the turret and payload bay. The only way to accomplish this feat is to deeply integrate the payload. ImSAR, the developer of the world's smallest SAR, and Aerius Photonics, the creator of the world's smallest laser range finder, have partnered for this project to deeply integrate the GMTI radar, camera and laser system on as many levels as possible. To quickly push the limits of how far can current technology go ImSAR/Aerius will go beyond modeling and simulation create a prototype payload package that combines GMTI radar, EO camera and laser range finder in a package that weighs less than two and half pounds.
