Paper Abstract

Discover II is a technology demonstration program to develop an demonstrate an affordable space-based radar (SBR) with High Range Resolution Ground Moving Target Indication, SAR imaging capabilities and Digitized Terrain Elevation Data (DTED) that will revolutionize surveillance and precision geolocation support to the tactical warfighter. The near- continuous, global access provided by the objective Discoverer II concept, in combination with emerging capabilities to develop and exploit information on stationary targets, moving targets, and terrain elevation, will provide new and significantly enhanced mission capabilities to operational commanders.
