DARPA Looking for Small SAR Satellites for (DRIFT)


Recent developments in small SAR satellites led by commercial industry offer new opportunities to experiment with novel SAR-related concepts. The goal of the DRIFT program is to demonstrate advanced capabilities enabled by a cluster of SAR satellites flown in formation.

The DRIFT program seeks to demonstrate novel processing algorithms on data from a cluster of at least two SAR satellites flown in formation. The program consists of two Technical Areas (TAs), but only abstracts and proposals for TA 2 are sought in response to this BAA.
