UAS Ground Radar

Radar is the Foundation of Airspace Management

The robustness of onboard systems for airspace situational awareness and safe navigation is a decision for regulatory authorities. Smaller aircraft would pay a very steep operational tax for layered sensors to detect uncooperative traffic. Larger aircraft with greater safety-of-life risk are likely to opt for complementary airspace situational awareness data to enhance the safety case.

In the context of dense flight areas, such as cities, corridors, and drone ports, a network of ground-based sensors generating rich airspace situational awareness data benefits all fliers and has substantial cost and operational advantages over onboard sensors alone or, in some cases, at all. Radar data is easily consumed by UAS Service Suppliers (USS) and integrated with UAS traffic management (UTM) data feeds for managed airspace that accelerates advanced air mobility.

EchoGuard ground radar for Airspace Management


Ground-Based Radar for Airspace Management

EchoGuard is ideal for countries with radionavigation service in the K-band (24.45-24.65 GHz), such as the USA, Canada, Mexico, Japan, and India. With a wide field of view and ESA performance in a commercial package, no radar deconflicts the airspace as efficiently. Learn more about EchoGuard for ground station deployment.
