Company that is Reinventing Radar Takes Airspace Safety to a New Level
CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/AUVSI?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#AUVSIlt;/agt;–Echodyne,
the manufacturer of innovative, high-performance, small electronically
scanned array (ESA) radars for government and commercial markets,
announced today that it will demonstrate enhanced airspace situational
awareness by visualizing EchoGuard sensor data through augmented reality
at AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2019 in Chicago, IL. The Company will showcase the
technology at Booth #2805 on April 30th-May 2nd.
During the conference, Echodyne will display how its EchoGuard radar
offers superior performance for both primary UAS use cases: commercial
mission safety, and counter-UAS. 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).
“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 innovation that enhances both mission and public safety.”
Echodyne will also be making additional announcements at AUVSI
XPONENTIAL 2019. To schedule a meeting with Echodyne at the show, please

Echodyne introduces the world’s first compact, software-defined,
solid-state, true electronically scanned array (ESA) radar sensor.
Ideally suited for machine perception in an autonomous age, Echodyne
offers high-performance commercially-priced radars to governments,
industries, and integrators engineering solutions for border security,
critical infrastructure protection, first responders, unmanned aircraft
systems, and autonomous vehicles. Privately held, the company is based
in Kirkland, Washington, and is backed by Bill Gates, NEA, Madrona
Venture Group, Vulcan Capital, and Lux Capital among others. For more
