Where should imaging radar go?

Right now, I have it in radar MASINT, but I can make a fair argument that specifically imaging radars, as opposed to tracking radars, really belong in Imagery intelligence. I have not yet ported the Wiki article on IMINT, as I wrote much less of it than the other intelligence articles.

Ideally, if there's someone here knowledgeable about IMINT, I'd like him or her to start a new article here, or port and edit the Wiki article. At that point, I'd like to have a discussion about the placement of imaging radar, a discussion I never could get going at Wikipedia.
