LORA (low-frequency radar) is a new airborne VHF/UHF-band radar which has both synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) and ground moving target indication (GMTI) modes. The main motivation for the system is to facilitate detection of man-made objects in a variety of conditions, i.e. stationary or moving, located in open terrain or in concealment under foliage. The LORA system will operate in several configurations extending from 20 MHz to 800 MHz. Initial flight trials during 2002 were successfully conducted using the 200-400 MHz band. SAR image examples are shown including both forested areas and man-made objects. A second band, 400-800 MHz, has also been completed but not yet flight tested. A third band, 20-90 MHz, is being added and will be completed during 2003.
