Echodyne has raised $49 million over 2 rounds from an acclaimed group of investors, including Bill Gates, Madrona Venture Group, Vulcan Capital, and NEA

The investment thesis is straightforward: Radar is the indispensable all-weather sensor when having the best sensor matters, with market applications constrained by unattractive price-performance characteristics. Moreover, high performance radar is essential for a range of autonomous machine perception needs, from agriculture to transportation. 

Echodyne's intellectual property unlocks a range of commercial and machine applications across government and industry by combining revolutionary MESA technology with Acuity intelligent software to create radar sensors with unprecedented performance at significant discount to commercial radar pricing. Our radar enables:

  • 3D security for national borders, critical national infrastructure, and public spaces in smart cities;
  • unmanned aircraft systems to operate safely in the national airspace for commercial and enterprise IOT applications, whether operator-controlled or autonomous flight;
  • autonomous vehicles requiring taskable all-weather high-resolution 4D radar.
