IMSAR’s NSP-5 Radar Moving into Production for U.S. Navy & Marine Corps Small Tactical UAS Program of Record as AN/DPY-2()

IMSAR LLC announced that its NSP-5 radar system is in production to deliver Mission Kits to the RQ-21A Blackjack Program of Record operated by the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC).

The payload project, named “Split Aces,” is a Synthetic Aperture/Ground Moving Target Indicator Radar Payload and has been given the prototype designation AN/DPY-2().

The NSP-5 is powered by operationally proven, Ku-band NanoSAR Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) technology, which is housed in a pod with enclosed electronically scanned array antennas. The NSP-5 provides high-resolution SAR imagery, coherent change detection, and ground moving target indication.

Ryan Smith, President and CEO, said, “IMSAR is excited to provide America’s defense with a genuinely tactical, high-performance radar solution enabling true multi-intelligence for expeditionary platforms at such a critical time.”

The NSP-5 delivers high-performance capabilities despite its small size, weight, and power characteristics. Commercially, the NSP-5 is available in a standard pod configuration that measures 5.4 in. (13.7 cm) in diameter and 45.3 in. (115 cm) in length, weighs 16 pounds (7.3 kg), and consumes 150 watts of power.
