Paper Abstract

Recent advances in microwave radiometric (MICRAD) technology, particularly in millimeter wave components, now allow MICRAD imagers to provide a useful reconnaissance capability. The characteristics of these systems make them ideally suited, for real-time reconnaissance. This paper describes an experimental real-time reconnaissance system implemented by the Naval Weapons Center, China Lake, Calif. It describes the image interpretation techniques used for MICRAD imagery. The paper also describes an advanced, pod-mounted version of the experimental imager unHer development for the Naval Weapons Center by Rockwell International.
