Selex Galileo is to supply its PicoSAR sensor to an undisclosed new buyer, with the equipment to be integrated with a tactical unmanned air vehicle platform.

The company says it will deliver three lightweight synthetic aperture radar/ground moving target indication payloads to support an evaluation by what it describes as a “non-NATO export customer”. There is also “the potential for a full production run upon successful tests”, it adds.

Selex Galileo says it has already supplied its active electronically scanned array PicoSAR design to four operators, and demonstrated its capabilities on “a number of fixed- and rotary-wing platforms”. The sensor – which weighs around 10kg (22lb) – has previously been flown on the company’s own Falco UAV, along with an electro-optical/infrared payload.
