Echodyne Corp and OWT Global have formed a strategic relationship to develop and bring to market next-generation situational awareness solutions across OWT Global’s portfolio. 

OWT Global is a services and solutions provider for C5ISR, UxS and Air Domain Awareness & Defense solutions, while Echodyne Corp is a radar platform company delivering high-performance commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) radars.

Echodyne’s ultra-low size, weight, and power (SWaP) radars offer electronically scanned array (ESA) performance at COTS price points that radically expands situational awareness capabilities across deployed forces and assets. 

Integrated into OWT Global’s advanced Intelligent Sensing as a Service (ISaaS) platform, the precision radar data improves end-end system performance. 

The companies will focus on optimizing existing capabilities and expanding these into new applications. Additionally, the relationship establishes a proven services support model to grow with Echodyne radars. Strategic applications include: 

  • Counter-Unmanned Aircraft Systems (C-UAS), where data accuracy vastly improves identification and targeting, and COTS equipment corrects financial asymmetry. 
  • C5ISR, where highly portable, low-SWaP, high fidelity situational awareness improves mission outcomes. 
  • UxS operations, where low-SWaP and high-fidelity performance are key design objectives for maritime assets, air & ground vehicles, and ground stations. 
  • Improved Critical Infrastructure Protection, where airspace awareness is paramount to security design and operations. 

Eben Frankenberg, CEO of Echodyne, said; “As our radars are designed into more mission-critical systems, creating relationships with trusted suppliers is key to our success. 

“OWT Global represents deep knowledge of systems and platforms that are being tasked with detecting, tracking, and defeating modern threats like drones. OWT Global’s expertise augmented by best-in-class Echodyne radars is a winning combination for end users.”

Eric Fuller, CEO of OWT Global, commented; “OWT Global’s vendor agnostic support to our customers enables us to see and use emerging products from across the market and keep pace with evolving requirements. 

“It’s clear to us that Echodyne’s radars provide an accuracy and reliability far beyond existing legacy solutions and enable OWT to bring our customers optimized options to keep pace with the latest threats. We’re excited about the growing partnership with Echodyne and are committed to always staying aligned with the best capabilities for our customers and their missions.”
