Echodyne, the radar platform company, announced the release of EchoGuard CR and RadarHub to enable greater drone/aircraft detection in dense locations and simplify multi-radar deployment. These products represent a big step forward for the Counter-UAS space, broadening the capabilities of security systems in challenging environments.
EchoGuard CR provides high performance, active beam-steering, 3D radar capability in urban and dense environments or locations with reduced range requirements, and RadarHub simplifies multi-radar deployment and management.
The products extend Echodyne’s unique ability to bring high performance beam steering radar capabilities to commercial markets.
“We’re excited to continue to add to our product stack. Our new beam-steering radar, EchoGuard CR, brings highly accurate ground and airspace perimeter surveillance within the budget of the vast majority of critical infrastructure customers,” said Eben Frankenberg, CEO of Echodyne. “In addition, RadarHub provides a platform to easily deploy and manage multi-radar installations through one central interface and is a strategic addition to our expanding product lineup.”
EchoGuard CR radar uses MESA radar technology to meet demand for high-performance radar for close range security within commercial budgets. The solution delivers advanced 3D perimeter surveillance for critical infrastructure with reduced energy output for greater accuracy in cluttered and busy semi-/urban environments.
EchoGuard CR’s ultra-low size, weight, and power (SWaP) is ideal for guarding ground and airspace perimeters of critical infrastructure and high-risk facilities in semi-/urban locations, and reliably identifies motionless or in-motion drones that may be spying from distance. A highly intuitive user interface allows configuration of the radar to site and mission requirements and offers options for integration into security platforms or as a stand-alone system. The lightweight solid-state hardware design simplifies mounting for fixed site deployments and offers rapid setup for portable or temporary needs.
RadarHub is a pre-engineered control cabinet solution that simplifies deployment, networking, and operations of multi-radar installations. The solution connects up to 5 radars and conveniently manages all key performance parameters, including power and network, through a single interface.
RadarHub is compatible with the growing EchoGuard family of radars and can be easily integrated with security system infrastructure or used to quickly deploy standalone hemispherical surveillance for temporary missions. Radar Hub provides flexible support for a variety of sensor fusion configurations such as radar + camera + additional sensors, e.g. RF or ADS-B, and has a UL-508A compliant design and construction.
