Echodyne, the manufacturer of innovative, high-performance radars for government and commercial markets, announces that it has received approval from the FCC for widespread deployment of its EchoGuard radar for radiolocation and radionavigation in the United States, the company said.
The FCC equipment authorization allows the radar to be used throughout the United States for ground and airspace surveillance applications that detect and track potential security threats with high accuracy and for ground-based airspace management applications that ensure safe navigation of commercial drone missions.
Echodyne´s innovative metamaterials technology and powerful software combine to create an electronically scanning array (ESA) radar in a compact, solid-state format at commercial price points for the very first time. The radar has been demonstrating award-winning performance for government, law enforcement, security, and UAS / UTM customers for some time via experimental licenses.
Features of the EchoGuard high-performance radar include:
True electronic beam-steering with market-leading C-SWaP attributes;
Long-range detection with high reliability and accurate tracking of multiple, concurrent air and ground targets; and
Easy integration into sensor fusion and security systems for unmatched 3D situational awareness.
