EchoGuard
3D Security Radar

EchoGuard is built on innovative MESA technology that brings industry gold-standard electronically scanned array (ESA) radar to commercial markets for the first time.

With an ultra-low SWaP profile, EchoGuard intelligently searches, detects, and tracks objects of interest in both ground and air domains. As the primary sensor in a multi-sensor system, EchoGuard rapidly and accurately slews other sensors such as PTZ optical cameras, even at high zoom levels and while tracking fast moving targets such as drones, and records valuable data for prosecution of offenders and performance evaluation. 

Highest performance in its class

Thanks to our innovative MESA technology, EchoGuard is the only compact ESA radar that provides the best performance at commercial prices.

Built for systems integration

EchoGuard's rich data and choice of outputs create simple, powerful integrations that cue pan-tilt-zoom optical sensors for visual tracking and create detailed records for existing security systems.

Feature rich, highly configurable

EchoGuard is a software-defined radar that can be customized and configured to support a range of tasks and locations through an intuitive interface. 

Proven, reliable, ready to deploy

EchoGuard has been selected as the preferred radar by dozens of security systems integrators. It continues to operate without interruption in harsh conditions and environments.

Breakthrough performance at breakthrough pricing

EchoGuard's MESA technology brings advanced ESA radar performance to counter-drone perimeter security at commercial pricing. 

Security system integration

EchoGuard is designed for integration with other sensors and existing video management systems (VMS). We support systems integrators and provide radar expertise as they design security solutions for their customers' facilities.

Superior airspace tracking

EchoGuard actively revisits tracked objects at up to 10 Hz to achieve precise airspace tracking for human-in-the-loop or AI visual confirmation.

Proven, reliable, ready to deploy

Already selected by dozens of counter-drone system Defense suppliers, EchoGuard delivers outstanding performance to achieve the security objectives of high risk critical infrastructure.

Real human-portability

A single EchoGuard radar with quick-mount bracket on rugged tripod with two BB-2590 batteries weighs less than twenty pounds and provides ten hours of operation.

Dual use sensor

Law enforcement has two primary use cases for an airspace surveillance radar – (1) ensuring clear airspace for approved UAS operations, and (2) detecting and tracking unauthorized UAS that could pose a danger to the public. EchoGuard addresses both.

Compact, solid state, affordable

EchoGuard is a solid-state radar with no moving parts and no required maintenance or calibration. Maximum performance at commercial prices.

Proven, reliable, ready to deploy

Proven in demanding environments, backed by real human support, and ready to deploy for a range of law enforcement, fire, and SAR uses.
