Foliage Penetration Radars

SRC engineers develop both airborne and ground-based radars that can detect moving targets through dense foliage.

Our unique foliage penetrating radar capability has been demonstrated in single and double-canopy environments inside and outside the continental U.S. This advanced technology can detect dismount targets moving under heavy foliage, preventing enemy combatants from hiding and engaging in covert operations.

Mounting the radar on an airborne platform provides stand-off, persistent, wide-area foliage penetration surveillance and detection and tracking of dismounts and vehicles. Optionally, a vehicle-based sensor for obstruction penetration can also be used for FOPEN applications. We continue to develop and improve processing capability that transforms the collected radar data into real-time actionable intelligence for the operator.
