Echodyne’s Metamaterials Electronically Scanning Array (MESA) is changing the way people think about commercial radar. Built on decades of research, Echodyne brings high-performance radar to commercial markets and applications constrained by Cost, Size, Weight or Power.

It’s not often you get the chance to change industries by bringing truly breakthrough technology to market – technology that not only disrupts existing markets, but creates vast new ones. It’s hard and challenging work, but it’s also exciting, energizing, satisfying, and rewarding!


Drones, autonomous cars and trucks, heavy machines, even flying cars. To operate safely, these machines need sensors that work flawlessly across all environmental conditions. Echodyne has applied the physics of metamaterials to create a new category of sensor that provides the critical high-resolution, ground-truth data that autonomous machines and vehicles need to operate safely at any time and in any weather. Advanced control and processing software is a key part of Echodyne’s intelligent radar solutions, and Echodyne’s software team is setting the bar for high-reliability smart sensors for commercial applications.
