Our graduates have been working on PHAROS, a novel approach to space-borne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR). Measuring 80 x 80 x 100cm, it provides 1cm resolution imagery to ground or air receivers.
This multi-static SAR ensures that ‘no photon is left behind’. Conventional SAR relies on energy reflecting from a target back to the sensor. However, most of the radar energy is scattered by the target away from the source of illumination. This is an effect that ‘stealthy’ targets rely on. With PHAROS, a series of ‘multi-static’ receivers are located away from the source of illumination. These are combined to provide finer image quality, better detection of low-observable targets, and covert observation that is invulnerable to jamming. On top of all that, being radar, it’s all-weather, and operational day or night.
