Echodyne Brings Cutting-Edge Radar Technology to Counter UAS Conference in London

MESA radar technology shown at Counter-UAS Conference

Echodyne, the radar platform company, is setting the stage to enhance its influence across the European defense and security sectors by participating in the Counter UAS Technology Europe 2024 at the Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square in London on April 16-17, 2024. At the conference, Leo McCloskey, Echodyne's VP of Marketing, will host a presentation on important counter-UAS developments in accuracy and mobility. 

The annual conference, hosted by SAE Media Group, brings together stakeholders in Counter-Unmanned Aircraft Systems (C-UAS) from across Europe. The forum addresses the challenges posed by the increasing use of small drones and UAS technology – a growing threat not only in military settings but also to critical national infrastructure and personnel both domestically and internationally. 

Drones are increasingly becoming sophisticated, equipped to carry out complex and covert operations. This presents a dual challenge. On the one hand, there is the technological hurdle of developing sensors capable of precise tracking and identification. On the other, there is the economic challenge posed by the disproportionate costs of countering these inexpensive yet effective devices. Echodyne's metamaterials electronically scanned array (MESA®) is uniquely positioned to address these issues, offering both a cost-effective and high-performance solution. 

For those interested in learning more about Echodyne’s radar for C-UAS operations, including remote weapons stations (RWS), short-range air defense (SHORAD) programs, and more, Echodyne’s presentation at the Counter UAS Technology Europe 2024 is set for 11 am BST on April 16, 2024.
