Site1  For NATO's military and pace-keeping operations, radar and SAR systems for airborne and space-based surveillance, reconaissance, and target acquisition (RSTA) are essential tools for a large number of missions. Its ability to function during day and night, relative immunity to weather, capability of localizing targets in range, long range operation, generating highly accurate interferometric 3D-maps, detection and tracking of mobile targets, and classification of objects, make it the sensor of choice in many  situations. New emerging concepts employ high-resolution multi-channel imaging radars, for instance, and/or multiple radar/SAR sensors distributed over the area of  interest in  a  Network-centric  environment to  enhance the information quality gained by a 
single sensor. They offer multiple benefits, for instance boosting the potentialities to characterize the target by exploiting the multiple observation angles or using already available signals of opportunity.

Topics to be covered: 

  • Sophisticated active and passive radar sensors
  • Multistatic and MIMO radar systems
  • High resolution Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)
  • Multichannel SAR/MTI
  • Multipass/multiview SAR and Interferometric SAR
  • SAR Tomography
  • Sensor data fusion
  • Tracking and sensor management
  • Context-assisted tracking and sensor data fusion
  • Space-based moving target tracking
