Abstract
A major problem faced by our warfighters utilizing a Micro Air Vehicle is its limited capability to provide wide area situational awareness and sense combatants under low visibility conditions such as night, rain, fog, dust, snow and sand. The other issue is that once a combatant is identified the warfighter must personally engage the combatant exposing the warfighter to enemy fighter. If the MAV had the ability to sense 24/7 over a wide area, identify the target and then cue munitions the warfighter could remain at safe standoff during an entire mission reducing the chance of himself and his team from coming under fire. In Phase I we demonstrated that is possible to fly a GMTI radar on the MAV and that we can integrated the camera and laser inside the turret ball of the MAV. In Phase II we will completely integrate the GMTI radar/Day&Night Camera/Laser into a fully integrated module that will be attached and flown on the Honeywell MAV. This is similar to have a short range version of the sensor package of a Apache Longbow on a 15lb. MAV.
