Airspace Management Radar

Built on MESA technology and in use by multiple Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Test Centers, Federal agencies, and private companies, EchoGuard is the only compact, solid-state radar with ESA beam-steering accuracy at commercial prices. With a choice of rich data output types, it is easily customized to site, user, and mission objectives. Ultra-low SWaP makes it easy to transport and setup, whether installed at fixed sites or deployed for temporary field use. Ideal for sensor network deployments like UAS corridors and Drone ports, EchoGuard's rich airspace data, high data rate, and intelligent networking create comprehensive situational awareness for all UAS operators.
