To achieve surveillance missions at a safe distance, the UAV surveillance radar shall provide Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images and also SIGINT and EO/IR payloads. This presents the flight plans generated for these UAV by new generation technologies (genetic algorithms) respecting the constraints of uses of the sensors (angles, distances of recording), the UAV performances (load factor in bend, height of cruise, speed of maximal stamina) as well as the environment of the theatre of operation (relief, meteorology, and restricted zones).
