Suborbital Radar Science and Engineering (334F)

The Suborbital Radar Science and Engineering group serves as a virtual and literal testbed for new radar technologies and techniques.

Key products include:

  • Development of new suborbital radars for airborne campaigns to collect scientific data for validation of processing and science algorithms and measurement techniques
  • Development and demonstration of sharable technologies designed to reduce the cost and risk of future radar missions
  • Validation of technology developments such as T/R modules, digital receivers, and onboard processors
  • Training of engineers in all radar disciplines

Radar projects that the Suborbital Radar Science and Engineering group is currently supporting include:

  • UAVSAR (Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar – airborne L-band interferometric polarimetric SAR for deformation and vegetation studies)
  • MSL TDS (Mars Science Laboratory Terminal Descent Sensor – Mars Ka-band landing radar altimeter/velocimeter)
  • Instrument Incubator Program (IIP), International Polar Year (IPY) and Advanced Information Systems Technology (AIST) research tasks to advance radar system architectures and technologies for future missions
