RADAR M2. Technical specifications

Movin’Marine, search for mineral resources
VHF band
· Central frequency: 73.8 MHz
· Bandwidth (3dB): 1.8 MHz
The passive VHF band is the core of the System and the reason why the M2 radar is capable of detecting deep metal deposits. Since it works with low frequencies, the penetration can reach 1000 meters.
P-Band (UHF)
· Central frequency: 325 MHz
· Bandwidth (3dB): 8 MHz
The P-band (UHF) is used to compensate the readings for the first tens of meters and up to 100 m.
· Frequencies:
1278 MHz, Bandwidth (3dB): 24 MHz
1413 MHz, Bandwidth (3dB): 20 MHz
1575 MHz, Bandwidth (3dB): 40 MHz
The L-band is used to compensate the surface layers of the soil (0 to 40 cm). These layers are mainly affected by changes in soil moisture.
Microwave antenna
· Dual polarization antennas (H+V).
· Beam width (3 dB): 51º
Terrestrial projection: 70 m @ 100 m altitude of flight
Microwave interference mitigation system The interference mitigation system allows eliminating digital interferences emitted by other electronic devices.
Thermal camera
· Resolution 1024×768 px
· Precision 0.2 K
The thermal camera is used to compensate for the energy received due to changes in the temperature of the ground surface. The deepest layers of the soil are considered thermally stable.
· GPS, Glonass
· CEP position accuracy: 2.5 m
· Format WGS84 EPSG:4326
The collected data is stored georeferenced (latitude, longitude and time).
Inertial measurement unit (IMU) A precision IMU is used to project the antenna beamwidth and compensate for the inclinations of the aerial vehicle.
Electrical power supply
·Voltage: 24 V
Effective consumption:
  ? Electronics: 1 A
  ? Temperature stabilization system.: 12 A
The electronics of Radar M2 are thermally stabilized to reduce the influence of internal temperature changes with the measurements.
· Dimensions: 700 mm x 900 mm
· Weight: 50 kg
