FalconSAR is the lean and compact variant of the DragonSAR. Making use of only a single set of antenna panels, the weight is drastically reduced with the benefit of a reduction in volume. Therefore a low-cost of launch can be achieved and the ability to launch a number of the satellites at once to realise a constellation becomes commercially viable. The FalconSAR makes use of interrupted Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (iFMCW) technology that is different from the more traditional pulsed systems. The major benefit of this technology is the reduction in weight of the satellite due to the reduced requirements placed on the power systems on board of the satellite.
