IMSAR is excited to announce the release of the NSP-7 Blk II Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)/Moving Target Indication (MTI) radar. The Blk II variant increases the range of the original NSP-7 by over 50% with no increase in the Size, Weight and Power (SWaP). The NSP-7 Blk II is capable of imaging beyond 45 km and of detecting maritime targets in excess of 50 nautical miles, all while consuming less than 300 watts and weighing 25 lbs. This puts the performance of the NSP-7 Blk II in the class of larger sensors weighing and costing substantially more. These ranges bring true strategic Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities to the tactical operator.
The Blk II maintains the MIL-STD 810G weatherization making it an ideal sensor for operators of manned and unmanned aircraft wishing to gain all-weather ISR from their platforms. As an evolution of our NSP family of small SARs, the NSP-7 Blk II brings with it combat-proven SAR imaging, Coherent Change Detection (CCD), Ground Moving Target Indication (GMTI) and Maritime Moving Target Indication (MMTI), providing end-users with true multi-int capabilities. IMSAR radars are designed with modularity in mind and, as such, there is high code and hardware reuse. As a result, the years of dedication and development that went into the original NSP-7 translate directly to the Blk II.
The NSP-7 Blk II radar system is simple to operate with IMSAR’s Lisa 3D Command and Control (C2) and Processing, Exploitation, and Dissemination (PED) software. The NSP-7 Blk II can also be controlled through the Radar API which enables other software suites to slew the radar to an AOI and immediately begin collecting data, access data products, and system status information. Starting with high quality radar data generated by the NSP-7 Blk II, advanced processing techniques are used to create a variety of data products enabling all weather Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) and surface search missions.
Founded in 2004, IMSAR is a privately owned business that designs, builds, and supports security and intelligence products. We strive to provide manned and unmanned platforms with the best Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) technology possible. IMSAR is currently working with many branches of the Department of Defense (DOD) to deploy new capabilities. Located in Utah Valley, IMSAR enjoys both beautiful scenery and access to a wide range of environmental testing opportunities due to Utah’s various climate changes and ecological diversity. The company are based in a 60,000 sq ft facility, which is home to corporate office, research and development operations, and own in-house manufacturing.
