EchoFlight airborne radar

The first electronically scanning radar technology designed for mass production at commercial price points. Our compact radar design with low weight and low power is the perfect sensor for integration into a wide variety of UAS platforms. Its long-range all-weather detection and tracking is critical for receiving authorization to fly beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) flights. The precision of our beam-steering radar minimizes collision risk by tracking aircraft locations at all times across a broad field-of-view.

Superior airborne sensor performance ensures safety for remotely piloted UAS missions. Available now.

Size 7.38in x 4.75in x 1.57in (18.7cm x 12.1cm x 4cm)
Weight 730g (forced air cooling)
817g (convection cooling)
Power DC +12V to +28V
Operating <40W
Hot standby <15W
Field of View 120° Azimuth x 80° Elevation

High Performance at Commercial Price Points

A best-in-class, search while track radar that is the size of a paperback book and draws less power than a standard lightbulb.

Highly Accurate Detection & Tracking

With large FOV and sophisticated detection and tracking capabilities, EchoFlight ensures UAS mission safety and success.

True Beam-Steering Radar

Echodyne's MESA radar technology enables superior airborne sensor performance.

Silicon Valley Takes a (Careful) Step Toward Autonomous Flying

August 28, 2018

But the new emergency service will be operated by SkyRyse, a Silicon Valley start-up that intends to augment small helicopters and other passenger aircraft with hardware and software that allow for autonomous flight, leaning on many of the same technologies that power driverless cars. These include the 360-degree cameras and radar sensors built into the nose of the aircraft.

Echodyne’s pocket-sized radar may be the next must-have tech for drones (and drone hunters)

May 20, 2017

Just because we live in an age of many sensors doesn’t mean we always have the right one for the job. One in particular we’ve been lacking is a radar system that can detect obstacles and aircraft hundreds of meters out, yet fit comfortably on a small drone. The laws of physics, it seemed, prevented it — but Echodyne made it work anyway. And it’s ready to put out its first product.
