Radar Systems for Any Situation

KeyW radar systems are software-reconfigurable sensors that are readily adaptable to diverse missions and a wide range of aircraft and ground vehicles. Radar provides all-weather, day/night surveillance with varying degrees of penetration, including foliage, building and ground. Our software creates three-dimensional images that show features of land, structures and human activity visible only through radar imaging. Our tools perform terrain characterization and digital elevation model extraction for land cover/land use mapping applications. Our radar systems and associated exploitation algorithms are highly sensitive to man-made objects and man-made disturbances. We also provide fully automated, immediate on-board exploitation and dissemination.

Five Areas of Expertise to Meet Your Needs:

1. Airborne Radars: End-to-End Airborne Radar Development and Deployment

Develops and deploys multi-mission, multi-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and Moving Target Indication (MTI) radars for unmanned and manned aircraft

2. Ground Radars: End-to-End Ground Radar Development and Deployment

Develops and deploys multi-mission, multi-band detection, tracking and imaging radars for vehicles and ground stations

3. Radar Processing, Exploitation/Analysis and Dissemination (PED or PAD) Tools

Creates Tasking, Collection, Processing, Exploitation and Dissemination systems that scale from tiny Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to factory supercomputing clusters for airborne and satellite systems

4. Radar Research and Development

Uses extensive knowledge of radar system theory and application to invent techniques for data exploitation, compression and visualization; develops novel Measurement and Signals Intelligence and Automated Target Detection Recognition tools

5. Radar Quick Reaction Capabilities

Specializes in the rapid deployment of systems to address Urgent Operational Needs for Counter-Improvised Explosive Device, Foliage Penetration, Wide Area Surveillance, Littoral Surveillance and other customer requirements

Key Benefits:

  • Open systems architecture
  • Scalable software defined
  • Modular system that be configured to meet multiple missions
  • Automated imagery analysis that reduce analysts’ workloads

  • Fully automated, immediate on-board exploitation and dissemination
  • Terrain characterization and digital elevation model extraction for land cover/land use mapping applications

Hyperspectral

KeyW also has the ability and experience to incorporate hyperspectral imaging into its collection platforms. These sensors can identify with pin-point accuracy chemical differences in soil, air or water. This precession allows for collection platforms to maximize collection efficiency while finding those extremely hard-to-find needles in the world of haystacks.
