Synthetic aperture ladar based on a MOPAW laser

The synthetic aperture radar (SAR) has been used for years in long range land surveillance for threat detection, terrain mapping and disaster prevention. For certain applications such as subsidence monitoring, landslide hazard prediction and tactical target tracking, the need for better resolution has appeared. In this paper, learn how the SAL platform based on the INO Master Oscillator with Programmable Amplitude Waveform (MOPAW) laser has the potential to vastly improve resolution.
