We present results of ISAR imaging derived from a field trial detecting different non-cooperative targets with a photonics-based dual band radar operating in S and X band. Images of the targets have been extracted from collected data demonstrating the capability of the system to operate as an imaging radar. The innovative features of the photonic system as the frequency flexibility and the coherent distribution to decentralized peripherals open the way to multi-spectral/static imaging.
