I-Master is a lightweight high performance radar developed by Thales Aerospace Division, combining Ground Moving Target Indicator (GMTI) detection and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imagery. The I-Master Radar can be fitted to a wide range of platforms and is used for targeting and intelligence gathering. Igence were contracted to develop an MMI to coordinate data gathering trials for the radar.

Using experience gained on previous projects we were able to provide functionality to ensure the simplistic execution of a flight trial along with flexibility to allow the MMI to be used in complex system test environments.

Design Objectives

  • Allow the operator to manage the data gathering trials as a series of runs.
  • Configure the radar, navigation and data recording subsystems.
  • Present radar output in the form of range doppler maps and range return graphs.
  • Replay recorded trials data.
