Echodyne, renowned manufacturer of innovative, high-performance radars for government and commercial markets, has announced the release of its ‘Protecting Critical Infrastructure From Drones’ white paper. The white paper is being released in conjunction with the Global Security Exchange (GSX) conference taking place September 8-12 in Chicago. 'Protecting Critical Infrastructure From Drone' The white paper offers an important look at the security risks facing today's critical infrastructure and the limitations of current deployments in the face of increasing overflight from small unmanned aircraft systems. It details how critical infrastructure security requires new airspace surveillance sensors, like high-performance radar, to address the threat from drones. The paper offers a detailed look at a variety of airspace sensors currently available on the market and their capabilities and limitations. "Traditional approaches to securing critical infrastructure must be re-assessed to meet new challenges and threats, specifically the growing drone market and resulting increase in drones involved in perimeter security breaches," said Eben Frankenberg, CEO of Echodyne. "Our high-performance radar is a game-changing sensor that provides comprehensive 3D situational awareness for critical infrastructure."
EchoGuard receives FCC Equipment Authorisation allowing widespread deployment of the radar for security, surveillance, and airspace management applications. EchoGuard radar Echodyne, the manufacturer of innovative, high-performance radars for government and commercial markets, announces that it has received approval from the FCC for widespread deployment of its EchoGuard radar for radiolocation and radionavigation in the United States. FCC Equipment Authorisation allows the radar to be used throughout the US for ground, airspace surveillance The FCC Equipment Authorisation allows the radar to be used throughout the United States for ground and airspace surveillance applications that detect and track potential security threats with high accuracy and for ground-based airspace management applications that ensure safe navigation of commercial drone missions. Electronically Scanning Array radar Echodyne's innovative metamaterials technology and powerful software combine to create an electronically scanning array (ESA) radar in a compact, solid-state format at commercial price points for the very first time. The radar has been demonstrating award-winning performance for government, law enforcement, security, and UAS / UTM customers for some time via experimental licenses. "We are excited that EchoGuard has received this authorisation allowing its widespread adoption in the US," said Eben Frankenberg, CEO of Echodyne. "With the growing number of troubling drone incursions at airports, stadiums, and other facilities, there is tremendous demand for high-performance radar sensors. Tackling drone threats Eben adds, "Our innovative radar technology and software greatly increases the ability for security systems to accurately detect and track drone threats, as well as improves ground tracking of people, vehicles, and vessels. Our radar outperforms every other radar in its class, is priced for commercial markets, and has proven to be the best mid-range surveillance radar in the market." Features of the EchoGuard high-performance radar include: True electronic beam-steering with market-leading C-SWaP attributes; Long-range detection with high reliability and accurate tracking of multiple, concurrent air and ground targets; and Easy integration into sensor fusion and security systems for unmatched 3D situational awareness.
Echodyne, the manufacturer of innovative, high-performance, small electronically scanned array (ESA) radars for government and commercial markets, has announced that it will demonstrate enhanced airspace situational awareness by visualising EchoGuard sensor data through augmented reality at AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2019 in Chicago, IL. The UAV systems company will showcase the technology at Booth #2805 from April 30th to May 2nd, 2019. AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2019 At AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2019, Echodyne will display its state-of-the-art EchoGuard radar system During the AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2019 international security conference, Echodyne will display its state-of-the-art EchoGuard radar system and demonstrate how it offers superior performance for both primary UAS (Unmanned Aerial Surveillance) use cases: commercial mission safety, and counter-UAS (counter drone surveillance). The demonstration will feature an AR interactive experience using Microsoft’s Hololens and allows participants to experience unprecedented airspace situational awareness. Echodyne has quickly emerged as the preferred airspace situational awareness provider with its small, commercially-priced ESA radar– the first of its kind in the industry. Recently, the Company affirmed its participation in a number of initiatives at UAS Centers of Excellence across the country, including NASA’s Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) Technical Capability Level (TCL), FAA’s UTM Pilot Program (UPP) and FAA’s UAS Integration Pilot Program (IPP). Airspace management solutions In addition, Echodyne’s co-founder and CTO, Tom Driscoll, will be leading a session track at AUVSI on sensor data fusion for successful airspace management solutions on Wednesday, May 1st at 11:00 AM. “Having the ability to demonstrate how our EchoGuard radar contributes to airspace safety at the premier conference for the unmanned systems industry is just another exciting step for Echodyne,” said Eben Frankenberg, CEO of Echodyne. “This is another example of Echodyne delivering high-tech innovation that enhances both mission and public safety.”
Echodyne, the manufacturer of innovative, high-performance radars for government and commercial markets, announces the immediate availability of the EchoGuard Rapid Deployment Kit for surveilling borders, securing critical infrastructure perimeters and temporary events, and enhancing situational awareness. Echodyne’s innovative MESA™ technology and powerful software deliver the leading performance of electronically scanning array (ESA) radar in a compact, lightweight, solid-state format for the very first time. Portable surveillance kit The Rapid Deployment Kit is built for field agents, law-enforcement, and security personnel charged with temporarily or intermittently securing ground and airspace perimeters. With essential components weighing under 20 lbs., the kit is extremely portable and enables surveillance in the most remote or hard to access locations. Securing events and borders “Echodyne is excited to announce the Rapid Deployment Kit, specifically designed for securing temporary and special events and critical infrastructure, remote surveillance, and border security” said Eben Frankenberg, CEO of Echodyne. “Being able to rapidly deploy a high-performance radar sensor is a field force multiplier, significantly enhancing agent safety, and dramatically improving situational awareness. This is another example of how our MESA technology can provide exceptional performance in a low cost, size, weight, and power package.” Features of the EchoGuard kit: Industry leading 3D radar performance in a super lightweight kit Intuitive radar UI software Ruggedised high-performance computer Wired and optional wireless connectivity Choice of tripod size Essential components weigh less than 20 lbs
