NSP-3

NSP-3 is an operating in Ku-Band multimode, low-Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) radar system. It was specially developed for use on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).

The NSP-3 pod can be attached to an aircraft in a two pod saddle-bag configuration, with an externally mounted antenna pod and the radar and processing electronics located inside the fuselage, or with two pods with the antenna subsystem in one pod and the radar and processing electronics in the other. The installation is very simple. The radar requires only power, ethernet, and a connection to a GPS antenna to operate.
