The PicoSAR Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar provides superior all-weather SAR/GMTI capability for Unmanned Aerial Systems and fixed and rotary wing platforms. The array utilises low power, solid state Transmit Receive Modules (TRM) and delivers outstanding reliability. The flexibility of AESA technology allows the radar antenna to be resized to address specific platform constraints. Demonstrated on a number of fixed and rotary wing platforms, PicoSAR has been selected by seven international customers.
COMPACT, LIGHTWEIGHT AIRBORNE GROUND
The PicoSAR Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar provides an unrivalled all-weather capability for Unmanned Aerial Systems, fixed wing and helicopter platforms.
Building on over 50 years of experience in the airborne radar field, PicoSAR combines our knowledge with thelatest technology to meet the evolving requirements of the 21st century.
The key to PicoSAR is the use of AESA technology in a small, compact configuration. Using many low
power, solid state Transmit/Receive Modules (TRM)
within its array, the PicoSAR radar is more reliable than
conventional radar systems.
For the most compact installations PicoSAR can be mounted directly onto the platform and the beam steered electronically, or it can be mounted on a gimbal for an even greater field-of-view. PicoSAR consists of a single small Line Replaceable Unit (LRU). This LRU can be reconfigured if required to ease installation, by detaching the antenna unit from
the processor unit.
