EchoGuard for GBDAA

Our compact portable solid-state EchoGuard radar is ideal for fixed, corridor, and temporary UAS flight operations. Integrated into several UAS Support Services (USS) platforms under the FAA’s Integration Pilot Program (IPP), EchoGuard has demonstrated its leading airspace management capabilities in Alaska, North Dakota, Texas (Lone Star), and Virginia (VTTI).

EchoGuard's MESA technology provides cost-effective and exceptional sensor performance for UAS mission safety and success.

Weight 1.25kg
Power DC +15V to +28V
Operating <50W
Hot standby <15W
Hibernate TBR <100mW

Beam-steering radar

True beam-steering radar simultaneously scans large airspace volumes and tracks multiple objects of interest.

Optimal C-SWaP

Four-on-a-pole achieves 6km hemispherical airspace management for significantly less than one conventional mechanically rotating radar.

Search while Track

The range and accuracy required to unlock the potential of BVLOS flights for commercial UAS.
