Abstract

The purpose of the project has been to finalize och verify LORA - an airborne SAR system operating in the VHF and UHF frequency bands. A major part of the work has been focused on development of LORA´s UHF channel. The radar electronics has been upgraded. The functionality of the antennas had been studied. Fast dataacquistion has been implemented. A new design of the VHF mode has been made and simulated with promising results. Extensive field experiments has been made. Studied of different concepts for SAR and GMTI has been made.
