The Surprising Key That Will Enable Drones To Change The World

The Surprising Key That Will Enable Drones To Change The World

May 23, 2019

A system that can’t tell a drone from a seagull, or an ordinary drone from a malicious one, is not operationally useful. According to Leo McCloskey from radar manufacturer Echodyne, the magic is in the radar signal processing software. Echodyne’s radar uses indicators within the signal, including object size, flight path, and the Doppler signature from the drone’s spinning blades, to distinguish drones from birds.

Growing Drone Industry Spawns a Growing Antidrone Industry

March 27, 2019

It’s not technically difficult to detect even a small drone with suitable radar equipment. “Almost all radars can detect a drone,” says Tom Driscoll, who is chief technical officer and a cofounder of Echodyne Co., a startup based in Kirkland, Wash., that is selling a radar system specifically tailored to detect small drones. The tricky part is distinguishing them from birds, which have about the same radar cross section. And for that, “the subtleties are important,” says Driscoll.
