Low-frequency multi-mode (SAR and penetrating) radar onboard light-weight UAV for Earth and Planetary exploration

Project description

How pocket-sized radars onboard drones will revolutionise planetary exploration

The EU-funded FlyRadar project targets the development of a low-frequency radar system to be mounted onboard a lightweight unmanned aerial vehicle. The radar will operate in two modes: as a synthetic aperture and a ground penetrating radar. Both modes are well suited to image and to map the surface and subsurface of planetary and satellite crusts. Until now, the size, weight and power consumption of such radars were only compatible with transport by aerial or satellite platforms. FlyRadar's pocket-sized radar system will be small enough to be installed onboard an electric unmanned drone. The system will be tested on Earth in places analogous to Martian environments. The system could take place in future missions of exploration of Mars or Titan.
