Echodyne’s Medium-Range EchoShield Radar Makes Security Sales & Integration’s Top 30 Tech Innovations of 2022 List


The EchoShield radar is recognized for unparalleled data accuracy, resulting in superior security systems to power the next generation of critical infrastructure protection

Seattle, WA. -- December 6, 2022 -- Echodyne, the radar platform company, is pleased to announce the newest addition to its market-leading portfolio of radars, EchoShield, has been selected as one of the Top 30 Tech Innovations of 2022 by Security Sales and Integration (SSI), the security industry’s premier technology and business source of trusted content. SSI’s annual list of the most cutting-edge technology is compiled by the publication’s seasoned technical editors, who hold decades of industry knowledge and expertise.

EchoShield is an advanced software-defined multi-mission radar that sits on the frontlines of protecting critical infrastructure with best-in-class detection, tracking, and classification performance. EchoShield’s architecture builds upon the field-proven success of Echodyne’s proprietary metamaterials electronically scanned array (MESA®) technology. 

Echodyne radars bring advanced performance previously found only in defense solutions to wider markets at commercial prices. Excelling at airspace situational awareness, Echodyne radars allow security organizations to enhance perimeter surveillance and secure the air domain just like they do the ground domain. Echodyne radars offer:

  • Ability to surveil large volumes of air and ground domains for comprehensive all-weather performance
  • Direct and full-featured integration options for ingesting data to higher systems
  • Lowest cost, size, weight, and power (C-SWaP) for radar performance in the industry 

“We are honored EchoShield has been named as one of Security Sales and Integration’s Top 30 Tech Innovations of 2022. Backed by customer demand, this radar was created to fill the need for superior drone detection performance – a challenge critical infrastructure protection will need to address over the coming quarters and years,” said Eben Frankenberg, CEO of Echodyne. “We are especially grateful for this award from SSI as it validates our team’s efforts to deliver advanced detection technology to critical infrastructure and civilian security teams focused on keeping people and places safe.” 

Echodyne accepts this award on the heels of a $135 million funding round in June to expand the distribution, production, and development of its patented MESA radars across the defense, security, and autonomous machine markets worldwide.
