DeTect makes radars for aviation: for counter drone and drone detection purposes, bird detection, and to facilitate BVLOS flight for unmanned systems. Their newest offering provides a long range solution for multiple purposes.
An X-band, solid-state air and marine surveillance radar, the BAR(TM) series radar has been in development by DeTect since 2021 for extended range airspace security, beyond visual line-of-sight (BVLOS) drone operation, Aircraft Detection Lighting System (ADLS), bird monitoring and long-range coastal surveillance use cases. The first production article of the radar is currently undergoing final certification testing at DeTect’s Florida-based R&D range. The solution is anticipated to be released to the market by the end of the second quarter of 2023.
“With this radar, DeTect now offers a full range of 2D and 3D radars from small, lightweight, short-range units to large, long-range radars, allowing DeTect to deliver ‘The Right Radar for the Job’”, said DeTect President and CEO Gary W. Andrews.
