Our RA1000 micro radar enables a drone to detect objects in the flight path, whether in the air or ground based. It includes no moving parts, has fully electronic beam-steer antennas arrays, and is designed for the small weight, size, and power (SWaP) requirements of civil UAS.

As well as measuring the relative position of potential obstacles, the radar also directly measures relative velocity. This could prevent course changes being initiated if objects in the flight path are detected but are already moving away from the UAS.

Radar is ideally suited for long range detection performance, large field of view covering the direction of flight, in all weather conditions, day or night, and is barely affected by fog, dust, bright sunlight or night-time operation.

Detected objects can instantly be relayed to onboard flight controllers for automatic avoidance control. Alternatively, when there is a risk of a collision the relative location of all obstacles can be sent by the UAS datalink to on-ground flight controllers. The Radar measures point cloud and clustered objects, and track data is currently under development. The Radar interfaces to 3rd party flight controllers through open the Sensoriis Application Programming Interface (API).
