DISRUPT. ENABLE.

Imagine

Drones, autonomous cars and trucks, heavy machines, even flying cars are on their way. To operate safely, these machines need sensors that work flawlessly in a wide range of environmental conditions.

Unfortunately, existing sensors all have fundamental flaws. LIDAR and cameras have limited range and don’t operate reliably in adverse weather; and existing radars have woefully inadequate resolution. Echodyne’s radar vision platform represents a new category of sensor technology – combining the all-weather, long-range, ground-truth measurement capabilities of radar with the high-resolution imaging capabilities normally associated with cameras or high-end LIDAR.

This combination enables an enormous range of commercial, civil, defense and intelligence applications. For the first time, high-performance imaging radar is viable and affordable on commercial and small platforms, including all types of autonomous and unmanned vehicles and machines.

DETECT AND AVOID ON SMALL UAS

Radar is the ideal all weather Detect and Avoid sensor for small UAS operating beyond line of sight of their operator. MESA is small, light, low power, and affordable and delivers the field of view and ranges necessary for small UAS to navigate safely in the national airspace system.

auto

Autonomous Vehicles

Existing sensors may be sufficient for advanced driver assistance systems, but true autonomy demands higher resolution, better clutter suppression, broader fields of view, longer range, and better all-weather performance – all capabilities of MESA.

aviation

Aeronautical

Light, compact, and affordable electronically scanned radars are ideal for a vast array of commercial aeronautical applications including: weather radar, non-cooperative aircraft detection, degraded visual environments, and many others.
