Ainstein Long Range Radar Altimeter Recognized at Commercial UAV Expo

Ainstein, a leader in intelligent radar systems, was honored at the Commercial UAV Expo in Las Vegas for drone technology innovation. Ainstein’s Long Range Drone Radar Altimeter (LR-D1) was recognized as one of the top ten most innovative products at the Expo, nominated by a select group of industry media representatives at the show.


“As Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations become mainstream, Ainstein’s miniaturized radar altimeters and sense-and-avoid radar technology will help pave the way for safer UAV operations,” said Jeff Salmon, associate editor of geospatial magazine xyHt and a Pitch the Press program judge. “I was very impressed with the range, size and intelligence of Ainstein’s technology.”


The LR-D1 is a low-cost, high-performance mmWave radar altimeter designed to enable safe takeoff and landing for advanced UAVs, manned helicopters, and other aircrafts. Built to withstand rugged environments, the LR-D1 continuously monitors incoming data, assuring the measured altitude is accurate, even in low-visibility conditions up to 1,640 feet. The LR-D1 is part of a radar altimeter offering that also includes Ainstein’s US-D1 altimeter, the smallest and lightest radar altimeter on the market at under 60 grams.


“We’re really encouraged by the tremendous interest Ainstein’s radar products received at the Expo,” said Andrew Boushie, Vice President of Strategy and Partnerships at Ainstein. “Our products were identified as some of the most exciting new innovations. Being chosen as a finalist highlights the world-class expertise we’ve developed in radar systems engineering.”


Ainstein also released new customizable ultra long range airborne (ULAB-D1) and ground-based (ULGB-D1) drone detection radar sensors capable of tracking 100 targets simultaneously while capturing relative speed, distance, azimuth, and elevation data points for each target. Ainstein announced the products – which round out the full portfolio of advanced drone detection radar solutions, ranging from short to ultra long range – and their use cases at Commercial UAV Expo:


Ainstein is the only provider offering a full radar system portfolio, including everything from short to medium range drone detection and altimetry for small UAVs, to ultra long range radar systems for larger UAV applications, such as advanced aero vehicles with vertical take off and landing (VTOL). Ainstein’s full product portfolio enables autonomous drone landings and takeoffs, beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) flight, collision avoidance, and terrain tracking. In addition to UAV/UAS, Ainstein’s products are used for industrial process control, automotive sensing and control, perimeter security and more.
