IMSAR Announces NSP-5 ER's First Flight

'Flight Went Smoothly', Company Official Says

IMSAR has successfully flight-tested their new extended range multi-mode radar, the NSP-5 ER, for the first time. The inaugural flight took place in Utah County, Utah, near IMSAR's headquarters in Springville.

During the flight, the NSP-5 ER underwent testing to verify that image quality and impulse response metrics met IMSAR standards. The radar's high-resolution imaging and coherent change detection modes were successfully exercised, creating high quality imagery.

"The flight went very smoothly and the NSP-5 ER produced beautiful Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and Coherent Change Detection (CCD) products," said Larry Moore, Vice President of Engineering at IMSAR. "It was an excellent first flight of the new system and we look forward to additional flights to test all the radar modes and really push the system to its limits."

Previously reserved for small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, IMSAR has increased the operating range of their low Size, Weight, Power, and Cost (SWaP-C) multi-mode radar. The NSP-5 ER was designed for higher-altitude operation on larger, faster aircraft such as the King Air, PC-12, Caravan, and Gray Eagle. The NSP-5 ER provides these platforms with the same capabilities and low SWaP-C currently available on small UAVs while increasing range.
