Abstract
Not Available NASA is interested in fielding a sophisticated spaceborne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) for a variety of imaging missions, but historically such systems have proven unaffordable due largely to radar instrument cost, system mass and volume, and associated launch costs. ITN believes that producing a lightweight, cost-effective SAR requires revolutionary approaches and, therefore, we propose a totally new SAR concept, consisting of a flexible antenna blanket with intrinsic structure, thermal control, power and RF distribution functionality. This Multifunctional Structure offers an elegant solution for SAR missions. As with all new ideas, this concept presents an element of technical risk; however, this risk is offset by its high payoff, making our concept perfectly suited for investigation under NASA"s SBIR program.
