OWT Global – a services and solutions provider for C5ISR, UxS and air domain awareness and defence solutions – and Echodyne Corp – a radar platform company delivering high-performance commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) radars – today announced a strategic relationship to develop and bring to market next-generation situational awareness solutions across OWT Global’s portfolio, including the counter-UAS sector.
“Echodyne’s ultra-low size, weight, and power (SWaP) radars offer electronically scanned array (ESA) performance at COTS price points that radically expands situational awareness capabilities across deployed forces and assets,” said a company press release. “Integrated into OWT Global’s advanced Intelligent Sensing as a Service (ISaaS) platform, the precision radar data improves end-end system performance.”
The companies will focus on optimizing existing capabilities and expanding these into new applications. Strategic applications include: counter-uncrewed aircraft systems (C-UAS), where data accuracy vastly improves identification and targeting, and COTS equipment corrects financial asymmetry; C5ISR, where highly portable, low-SWaP, high fidelity situational awareness improves mission outcomes; UxS operations, where low-SWaP and high-fidelity performance are key design objectives for maritime assets, air & ground vehicles, and ground stations; and improved critical infrastructure protection, where airspace awareness is paramount to security design and operations.
