NSP-3 Synthetic Aperture Radar

The NSP-3 is an all-weather multi-mode SAR designed for Group 2 and 3 UAS, enabling land and maritime intelligence-gathering operations both during the day and at night. The low-SWaP system is made up of a modular payload enclosure for the radar and processing electronics, and a pod for the antenna subsystem. The electronics enclosure can be installed directly into a payload bay or fuselage and the antenna pod can be mounted externally.

Requiring only power, Ethernet, and a connection to a GPS antenna, the NSP-3 can be controlled via IMSAR's intuitive Lisa 3D Command and Control (C2) and Processing, Exploitation, and Dissemination (PED) software. A Radar Control API is also available for easy integration with third-party and custom-developed software.

The NSP-3 can be connected to a Ground Processing Server via a datalink for real-time data processing, or radar data can be stored onboard for post-mission processing.
