Echodyne has developed a core technology platform that enables a new architecture of all-electronic fast-scanning RADAR systems by leveraging the unique properties of metamaterials. This platform, the Metamaterial Electronically Scanning Array (MESA) enables the same beam-steering control of a phased-array antenna, but with dramatically reduced cost and complexity. Echodyne believes this technology has the potential to revolutionize the accessibility of imaging radar systems, and is now developing MESA for a broad range of markets - both commercial and government.
