ABSTRACT:CCAT will research applications and algorithms that can be deployed onboard the MQ-9A platform to improve Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) object detection and Ground Moving Target Indication (GMTI) and lower data link bandwidth requirements. An initial prototype of an onboard app will show the ability to support the local JTAC with an enhanced Common Operating Picture (COP). The app will be built on an industry standard open architecture for integrating subsystems and services into airborne platforms.BENEFIT:An application based on an industry standard open architecture would allow government or commercial customers to easily add a new capability to an existing Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) Lynx SAR radar system or other radar systems on multiple airborne platforms.
