Echodyne In Final Stages of Testing its Metamaterials Based Electronically Scanning Array Radar
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) has awarded Bellevue-based Echodyne Corporation $200,000 to begin the final testing phase as part of its Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP).
Echodyne received its award for its Metamaterials Electronically Scanning Array (MESA) technology. Metamaterials is a field of study that involves engineering artificial materials to have properties that are not found in nature. MESA uses metamaterials to build a new architecture for fully electronic scanning radar systems.
