Zeus Radar System
A compact radar system, developed specifically for UAV applications.
Zeus enhances situational awareness via detection of aircraft entering the operational airspace. Since there are a variety of circumstances which may lead to the presence of non-participating aircraft, Zeus is a vital technology that ensures safe and responsible UAV operations.
Zeus is an enabling technology for flights extending Beyond Visual Line Of Sight (BVLOS). The system employs state-of-the-art coherent and solid state radar hardware along with advanced signal processing techniques in order to achieve long range detection of general aviation (GA) aircraft.
Due to current regulations, only select aircraft carry ADS-B transponders. Therefore, to ensure the safety of all manned aircraft, most industry regulations forbid flying UAVs at BVLOS. With the advent of SMA’s Zeus technology, the UAV industry is one step closer to achieving its full potential in making commerical BVLOS flights possible.
