SPRINGVILLE, Utah. IMSAR has announced the release of the NSP-7 Block II synthetic aperture radar (SAR)/Moving Target Indication (MTI) radar. The Block II variant is designed to increase the range of the original NSP-7 by over 50% with no increase in the size, weight, and power (SWaP). 

According to the company, the NSP-7 Blk II is engineered to be capable of imaging beyond 45 km and of detecting maritime targets in excess of 50 nautical miles, all while consuming less than 300 watts and weighing 25 lbs. 

The Blk II is intended to maintain the MIL-STD 810G weatherization, making it an ideal sensor for operators of manned and unmanned aircraft wishing to gain all-weather intelligence, surveillance, and reconaissance (ISR) from their platforms.

As an evolution of our NSP family of small SARs, the NSP-7 Blk II is designed to bring with it combat-proven SAR imaging, Coherent Change Detection (CCD), Ground Moving Target Indication (GMTI), and Maritime Moving Target Indication (MMTI), providing end-users with multi-int capabilities.
