Passive Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR) and Improved Situational Awareness

NEXT GENERATION SOLUTIONS FOR PASSIVE INVERSE SYNTHETIC APERTURE RADAR (ISAR) AND IMPROVED SITUATIONAL AWARENESS

DIP Contribution: $149,450

Project Summary: Passive ISAR utilises existing transmitters such as TV, radio or satellite, and addresses the challenge of combining multichannel transmissions to enhance passive ISAR imaging performance.

Defence Relevance: Can be deployed covertly to offer improved situational awareness to Special Forces practically anywhere, paving the way for development and commercialisation of next generation situational awareness solutions of benefit across Army, RAAF and RAN.

Team Lead: University of South Australia’s Professor Kutlu Dogancay
