It seems to basically be a way of lowering the noise floor in the detector.

"The researchers say it could be useful for short-range low-power radar for security applications in closed and populated environments."

You still have to bounce photons off the target back to the sensor, so would presumably require high power at longer ranges, hence still be very noticeable on the vehicle and spacecraft scale.
