Today UAS traffic management company OneSky has announces that Echodyne, the radar platform company, has become a member of the OneSky Future of Flight Program – a coalition of Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) stakeholders developing scalable operations within the AAM market.
Echodyne produces compact, solid-state radars based on the company’s proprietary metamaterials electronic scanning array (MESA®) technology. Echodyne’s MESA radars create high-precision airspace data that is invaluable for the AAM industry to design aircraft and operate services to the highest levels of safety and reliability.
Michael Tornetta, Head of Sales and Strategic Growth at OneSky, said, “More and more operators are inquiring about surveillance feed integration with OneSky Solutions. Almost every company we speak with has either spoken with Echodyne or plans to. Being able to quickly demonstrate how our systems work together raises confidence in the minds of the operator. Ecosystem synergies like this are critical to the success of safe BVLOS operations.”
OneSky and Echodyne have already integrated Echodyne surveillance feeds with the OneSky airspace management system to provide total situational awareness for UAS operators. The data from Echodyne’s ground-based and airborne radar solutions provides aircraft operators with advanced airspace deconfliction capabilities.
