Why Choose Radar?... For when you have to be sure.

For the drone industry to succeed, multiple drones need to be flown at the same time across the skies, performing various operations, and be able to work alongside general aviation. 

These Uncrewed Aerial Systems (UAS), or drones as many refer to them, will need to be able to detect-and-avoid other objects in flight, land in all conditions, and find targets to ‘deliver’ to. 

And the regulators must be convinced that this can all be done safely and reliably, time and time again.

The SOLUTION, in virtually every other market is RADAR based.

That’s why Sensoriis was founded in 2020 to be able to take all our years of experience in radars and develop a low Size Weight and Power (SWaP) micro radar that could be easily integrated and flown on a UAS. 

The lower weight is critical to enabling greater payload, without limiting mission times.  This is a key driver of the cost and performance of our radars.  Embedded intelligence also allows rapid and multi-capability analytics where it matters most, on-board the UAS.

Sensoriis have proprietary radar technology which uses the FMCW (Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave) methodology and have delivered this in a ‘micro’ form factor

We have a 4D radar design, and so we measure the range, bearing (azimuth), elevation, and direct velocity from the Doppler measurement. 

We have patented our technology which allows a unique ‘cooperation’ between primary and multiple secondary radars.  We refer to this technology as Active Radars Cooperating or ARCTM. 

Our radars are small and lightweight, low powered with no moving parts.  They are highly sensitive and so provide a high spatial resolution over long range.   

They have a strong ability to penetrate fog, smoke, and dust when compared with optical sensors such as infrared and laser sensors, and cameras, and are highly effective in most weather conditions. 

Our micro-radars are able to ignore ‘reflections’ and clutter from background infrastructure and provide resilient localisation for in GNSS denied scenarios when satellite navigation systems are temporarily unavailable, occluded by buildings, or have been actively blocked due to high-risk security threats such as in military use cases.

Our radars are ever-present and able to deliver pin-point localisation, with an accuracy to 1 centimetre resolution, and are highly resilient to malicious intrusion (spoofing) or jamming mechanisms.

At Sensoriis, we pride ourselves on supporting easy integration with the UAS by providing an API (Application Programmers Interface).  We provide radar-based precision positional information via the MavLink Precision Landing protocol that can be automatically consumed and enacted by MavLink compatible flight controllers, such as ArduPilot.

We have the in-house engineering expertise to develop radar systems, leveraging best in class components to limit weight and drive unit economics.

We are confident that our radar sensors lead the way in terms of resilience, and functionality.  And our continual innovation programme will see game changing advances for many industrial airborne systems.

Radar is the best-in-class technology…….

Resilient | Best Resolution | Cost Effective

We have developed our radars to meet three main drone capabilities:

  • Detect-and-avoid
  • Automation and 
  • Localisation

We have two products:


Airspace radar solution for UAS collision avoidance, and Airspace Management.

Active Radar Cooperating (ARCTM)

Radar systems for providing accurate localisation, and autonomous landing capability, possibly in GNSS denied environments.
