the manufacturer of innovative, high-performance, small electronically
scanning array (ESA) radars for government and commercial markets,
announced today the expansion of its product line to include compatible
mounting kits for its EchoGuard radar. The new Tower Mounting Kit is an
all-weather, 24/7 airspace surveillance deployment solution for securely
mounting multiple EchoGuard radar units.
The Tower Mounting Kit precisely positions radars for simultaneous
overlapping coverage to support 360° azimuth by 80° elevation airspace
surveillance without the inherent track update delay or mechanical
unreliability of rotational radar systems. The Kit features easy
configuration for mounting up to four radars and swiveling arm brackets
for customized radar orientations.
“The Tower Mounting Kit dramatically simplifies the installation of our
high-performance MESA radars for an unprecedented level of airspace
situational awareness,” said Eben Frankenberg, CEO of Echodyne.
By designing the Tower Mounting Kit to be positioned anywhere along the
pole versus only at the cap, it facilitates more effective deployment of
other sensor modalities on the same pole structure, such as slew-to-cue
pant-tilt-zoom cameras or radio frequency trackers.
Key Features of the Tower Mounting Kit Include:
- Modular system includes separate arm brackets and pole adapters
- Easily configurable for mounting 1, 2 or 4 radars
- Powder coated, solid aluminum construction with mounting hardware
- Accommodates pole diameters from 65 to 225+ mm (2.6” to 8.6”+)
- Arm brackets include swivel for customized radar orientations
- Additional options for building parapet and corner mount solutions
- Cabling solutions for any scenario
