Abstract
ImSAR and BYU propose to use SAR/STAP/MIMO techniques to provide continous navigation in a GPS denied environment for UAS. The team has expertise in precision location of UAVs targets using a variety of methods inlcuding radar. BENEFIT: Commercial aviation and UAS missions that have become dependant on GPS navigation solutions will have an alternative during GPS outage or in jammed situations.
