Paper Abstract

Many of the more challenging goals set for future defence systems require a paradigm shift in remote sensing technology. Some of these arise because of changes in the nature of conflict, whilst others are due to the increased emphasis in the use of unmanned platforms, especially in relation to the provision of persistent surveillance. Sensors are required to span the entire electromagnetic spectrum and the UK's Electro-Magnetic Remote Sensing Defence Technology Centre (EMRS DTC) is concerned with research in all relevant areas aimed at developing new military capabilities. This paper explains how the EMRS DTC is meeting many of these requirements, using examples derived from its own programme
