Low-cost position-adaptive UAV radar design with state-of-the-art cots technology

  • US Patent No. 7068210
  • Issued: June 27, 2006
  • Status: Expired

A position-adaptive radar method and device for small UAV platforms capable of detecting “leakage signals” that, for example, propagate between two buildings or “leak through” penetrable surfaces such as walls or layers of the ground. The position-adaptive radar comprises a monostatic radar receiver that measures and processes leakage signals and then “self adapts” in position to establish line-of-sight between a mini-UAV platform and an obscuration channel that propagates the leakage signal. This allows a mini-UAV platform to process signals in real-time while gathering intelligence information and locating objects-of-interest that may be embedded within an obscuration channel.
