The NSP-5 UWB configuration simplifies integration to provide multiple capabilities on manned or unmanned platforms.
The NSP-5 UWB is designed as a standalone sensor payload or complement to existing payloads. It is quickly and easily attached to an aircraft’s wing or fuselage.
Add the high-resolution ultra-wide band NSP-5 UWB to any aircraft for penetrating SAR imagery, magnitude change detection and related capabilities.
With the lowest size, weight, and power of any SAR system available, the NSP-5 UWB provides smaller platforms advanced capabilities that previously have not been available.
NSP-5 UWB shares the same mounting system as the other NSP-5 Products. Any NSP-5 pod can be swapped quickly and easily to meet mission needs and available resources.
Every year, technology continues to shrink in size yet grow in capability. World-class imaging radar technology is no different. While being the smallest of its kind, the NSP-5 UWB packs some very powerful capabilities.

The NSP-5 family is made for organic operations where the needs of the mission can change quickly and dramatically.
Ultra-wide band SAR has many of the same advantages as Ku-band SAR: provides it’s own illumination, can see through atmospheric obstructions, and has a high-resolution that is independent of range and distance to the target. The major difference between UWB and Ku systems is the bandwidth that it operates in. The wavelength of Ku SAR is what allows it to see through things like clouds and smoke. Operating on a different wavelength means that what UWB can penetrate is substantially different. UWB radar is known to be able to penetrate dense foliage and even, in some cases, the ground. This principle difference between UWB and Ku means that the two systems offer great complement to each other. UWB sees different things from Ku and vice-a-versa. Ultimately, NSP-5 UWB makes a great addition to situational awareness.
The more you can see, the more you know; and the more you know, the more you succeed. Let’s put our all-weather, high-resolution imaging radar with advanced capabilities on your aircraft.
