MAPIS

Multichannel passive ISAR imaging for military applications (MAPIS)

 

European Defence Agency Ad-Hoc Research and Technology Category B Project
2014/12-2017/12

Based on the APIS project, with extended goals: "To study, define, analyse a new system concept for implementing and demonstrating ISAR imaging capability in a plug-in multistatic array passive radar finalized to target recognition."

The objective of the MAPIS project is to study, define, analyze a new system concept for implementing and demonstrating ISAR imaging capability in a plug-in multistatic array passive radar for target recognition. The activity is focused on the system back-end to allow the passive radar having the following main characteristics:

  •     the use of wideband IOs with specific analysis of satellite waveforms,
  •     mission-oriented signal emitter auto-selection techniques;
  •     adaptive target detection/tracking and ISAR imaging.
