UAV Radar

EchoFlight is an airborne radar designed for airspace detect-and-avoid on unmanned aircraft. With rich-data output choices for onboard or ground-controlled guidance and unique hooks for integration with other sensors, like ADS/B, EchoFlight is ideal for detecting and tracking cooperative and non-cooperative aircraft to enhance mission safety. For MALE/HALE flights that might use commercial airspace, EchoFlight provides unrivaled airspace situational awareness in all weather conditions.
