Echodyne announced the release of its “Protecting Critical Infrastructure From Drones” white paper. The white paper is being released in conjunction with the GSX 2019. 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.
Echodyne announced that its EchoGuard radar played a key airspace safety role in the successful completion of the FAA UTM Pilot Program. The radars supported beyond visual line of site operations in the Grand Forks urban area and the rural environment of Thompson for challenging UAS use cases. For several of the scenarios, clearing the airspace of traffic involved both UTM messaging and verification through Echodyne’s ground-based radars.
Echodyne announces that it has received approval from the FCC for widespread deployment of its EchoGuard radar for radiolocation and radionavigation in the United States. The FCC equipment authorization 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.
Echodyne announces the immediate availability of the EchoGuard Rapid Deployment Kit for surveilling borders, securing critical infrastructure perimeters and temporary events, and enhancing situational awareness. Echodynes 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.
Echodyne announced that its security radar, EchoGuard, has been selected by Black Sage Technologies, Inc. as the preferred radar sensor for mid-range C-UAS security solutions. The radar is recognized in the industry as the best-performing sensor in its class and is a critical component for UAS detection, tracking, classification, and identification in multi-sensor arrays. Echodyne’s breakthrough MESA™ technology creates a small ESA radar with high-fidelity data output with excellent range, detection and tracking accuracy.
Echodyne announced that it will be showcasing its groundbreaking Metamaterial Electronically Scanning Array (MESA™) radar at the Security Counter and Terror Expo in London on March 5-6, 2019. The Company will be exhibiting its EchoGuard radar in Stand F20. Echodyne radars offer an unprecedented degree of 3-D situational awareness by accurately detecting and tracking ground and air intrusions.
Echodyne announced that it has received a commodity jurisdiction (CJ) determination from the US State Department for its EchoFlight radar. The CJ determination classifies the EchoFlight radar as a commercial product exportable under the U.S. Export Administration Regulations (EAR) rather than the more restrictive International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) that apply to military items.
Echodyne announced that it has been selected to advance to the final phase of the prestigious Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP), sponsored by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T). The company’s work in the program focuses on border surveillance. Echodyne provides advanced MESA™ radars for securing critical infrastructure, borders, public spaces, and smart cities.
