The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has certified Echodyne’s EchoGuard 3D radar for radiolocation and radionavigation in the US. The FCC equipment authorization allows the radar to be used in the US for ground and airspace surveillance applications including ground-based airspace management applications that ensure safe navigation of commercial drone missions.
EchoGuard is an electronically scanning array (ESA) sold state radar which can be integrated with existing security ecosystems to track small targets. Combined with the company’s Acuity software the operating range for small UAS detection extends to 1km. Operations to date with UAS/UTM customers have been under experimental license arrangements. The FCC certification shows electromagnetic interference from the electronic product is within approved limits.
