EchoFlight
UAS Radar

An airborne radar designed for airspace detect-and-avoid on unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), EchoFlight's ultra-low SWAP and rich-data output choices complement unique hooks for integration with other sensors, like ADS/B.

EchoFlight is used by dozens of companies testing sensors for unmanned missions, from urban air mobility vehicles and long-haul cargo drones to governmental research centers. If detecting and tracking cooperative and non-cooperative traffic is your requirement, EchoFlight is your radar.
