Echodyne is the radar platform company that designs and delivers high-performance compact, solid-state radars based on the company’s patented metamaterials ESA technology.

Echodyne offers the world’s first compact solid-state true beam-steering radar for a wide range of industries and applications.

Echodyne was founded in 2014 by Eben Frankenberg and Tom Driscoll. The company is headquartered in Kirkland, Washington.


Echodyne combines patented Metamaterial Electronically Scanning Array (MESA™) technology and Acuity™ intelligent radar software to achieve maximum radar performance at commercial price points, often pennies on the dollar for comparable capabilities.
