Resumen (en_US)

A ¨RADAR¨ system, from the English Acronym ¨Radio Detention and Ranging¨. Better known as ¨Radio Detection and Location¨ RDL.  It is a system for detecting and positioning objects through shipping and reflection of electromagnetic waves in terms of the time of issue and the return of the waves and their speed (calculated by the Doppler effect of the electromagnetic signal received).  Meanwhile, an autonomous unmanned vehicle, also known as Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, UAV, which is defined as an aircraft which does not carry a human operator, and uses aerodynamic forces to provide airlift by itself. Therefore, it can fly autonomously or it can be operated by remote control.  This article focuses on the review of experiences where these two technologies are integrated, particularly UAVSAR (Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar). This is done in order to support research concerning the combination thereof to be applied in georeferencing humanitarian missions or military missions that require monitoring of airspace. 

Resumen (es_ES)

Un sistema RADAR -del acrónimo en inglés ¨Radio Detention and Ranging¨, es decir, ¨Detección y Localización por Radio¨, es un sistema de detección y posicionamiento de objetos a través de envío y reflexión de ondas electromagnéticas en términos del tiempo de emisión y regreso de las ondas así como de su velocidad calculada mediante el efecto Doppler de la señal electromagnética recibida. En tanto, un vehículo autónomo no tripulado -cuyo nombre oficial es Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), se define como un vehículo motorizado aéreo que no lleva un operador humano, y utiliza las fuerzas aerodinámicas para proporcionar la elevación del mismo: es decir, puede volar de forma autónoma o ser dirigido por control remoto. El presente artículo se centra en la revisión de experiencias donde se integran estas dos tecnologías -particularmente la UAVSAR (Vehículos aéreos no tripulados con sistema RADAR de apertura sintética)-, con el fin de soportar investigaciones referentes a la combinación de las mismas para ser aplicadas como herramienta de georreferenciación para misiones humanitarias y misiones militares que busquen vigilar el espacio aéreo.
