Abstract

The aim of the NATO-SPS SOLE project is demonstrating the feasibility and the high performance of a radar network thanks to photonics. Indeed, the coherence offered by photonics makes the proposed distributed radar system capable of an efficient implementation of MIMO processing and ISAR imaging, enhancing the performance in terms of resolution and precision. The advantage of a fully coherent, multistatic radar system here is experimentally proven by a 5-time cross-range resolution enhancement thanks to MIMO processing, and in an efficient focusing in ISAR imaging.
