Drones have the ability to change the way we do a variety of different deliveries and services but are not currently allowed to do so under FAA law, which Echodyne radar systems hope to change. The new device created by the company aims at making drones capable of flying autonomously and with sense-and-avoid technology to make them safe to fly beyond the sight lines of the pilot.
While a number of projects are being created by many different companies, the technology is largely being studies on a larger scale for UAVs of a bigger size. The new radar systems from Echodyne would allow for expansive capabilities for small-scale drones for brands and companies looking to partake in drone delivery. As the market shifts towards this kind of delivery model, the R&D from Echodyne will continue to prove essential.
