EchoGuard
3D Radar

Built on MESA technology, EchoGuard achieves mission objectives at COTS pricing. With comprehensive and easy-to-use APIs, flexible embedded software, and multiple data output options, EchoGuard radars can be integrated into sophisticated command and control (C2) systems or can operate standalone using Echodyne’s C2 software. EchoGuard’s precise 3D coordinates and fast update rate can cue EO/IR or other directional sensors for AI or human-based object identification and mitigation response.  

Breakthrough performance at COTS pricing

EchoGuard's MESA technology brings advanced ESA radar performance to Counter-UAS missions at commercial-off-the-shelf pricing. 

Search While Track

EchoGuard continuously searches the configured field of view while simultaneously tracking multiple targets, including swarms. 

Sequential lobing super-resolution

When a target is tracked, EchoGuard revisits the target at up to 10hz for precise airspace coordinates.

Proven. Reliable. Ready to Deploy.

Selected as the radar of choice by dozens of counter-UAS systems providers, EchoGuard delivers outstanding performance to achieve mission objectives.

Low operating profile, high performance 

ESA performance in a solid state format means no parts to service, no maintenance schedule. EchoGuard is designed to perform consistently. 

Built-in interference mitigation

With built-in interference mitigation and user-defined search and masking options, EchoGuard radars are designed to be networked together to create cost-effective volumetric coverage over large areas or along borders.

Rich-data output

Multiple data output options, from fully-processed tracks to raw range / velocity maps) allow for easy integration into C2 systems or for offboard custom processing. 

Proven. Reliable. Ready to Deploy.
