Burlington, MA (February 13, 2024) – MatrixSpace Radar – the smallest, lightest, lowest cost, and highest performance radar – is now shipping to commercial and public organizations in the United States and approved international countries. The award-winning product’s commercial delivery follows its recent Federal Communications Commission authorization.

Designed and developed in the USA, MatrixSpace Radar offers robust situational awareness of airborne and ground-based objects, regardless of lighting and weather conditions. This facilitates highly accurate drone detection and Counter Unmanned Aircraft System (CUAS) capabilities Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) flight for uncrewed, autonomous, and tethered aircraft and general aviation safety.

MatrixSpace Radar is a very low SWaP-C (size, weight, power, and cost), requires no additional infrastructure, and is deployable in minutes without specialist training.

“The demand for fast, effective ground and air surveillance is growing rapidly, and partners and customers tell us of their limitations with current solutions,” commented Dan Nobbe, Vice President of RF and Radar Systems for MatrixSpace. “MatrixSpace Radar is designed to provide radar for the rest of us – cost and performance which allows for use cases previously out of reach to commercial, public safety and defense situations.”

Manu Lubrano, CEO and co-founder of INVOLI added, “MatrixSpace provides scalable, comprehensive, low altitude, noncooperative detection at any time of day or weather, at a price point that finally makes powerful radar readily accessible. This is key for accelerating advanced air mobility as well as a wide range of public safety and commercial programs such as drone first responder, drone detection, and critical infrastructure inspections.”

MatrixSpace’s mission is to offer real-time AI and edge processing-based sensing with the ability to detect and track multiple types of objects in any environment. Combining industry-leading sensing, AI edge processing, and RF communication in real-time is a major technology breakthrough that will reinvent business models across multiple vertical market applications, in particular the defense and public safety industry. MatrixSpace Radar is the foundational product of this open architecture sensing platform.

MatrixSpace Radar has the lowest cost, size, weight, and power (SWaP) of any comparable radar on the market today. Key features are:

  • Portable– Small form factor (8.7cm x 14.1cm x 4.2cm) allows you to place units in any location and carry them to new locations as needed. Easily attach to autonomous vehicles or fixed locations like water towers, buildings, or poles for a 360-degree view.
  • Detect and monitor relevant movement in any environment – humans, airborne objects, ground vehicles – even in visually challenging conditions, including rain, fog, and smoke.
  • Fast to deploy– Install and configure the device in minutes. No specialized training is required.
  • Ultra-low power supply– The radar’s low energy consumption means it can be powered by solar or battery for remote, long-term usage. No standard electricity connection is needed.
  • Open and extensible– MatrixSpace Radar is based on an open architecture that integrates with industry-wide UTM, Command and Control, counter UAS, and traffic and video surveillance systems for a comprehensive, unified view.
  • 4D imaging radar– MatrixSpace Radar is the most advanced radar technology designed to detect and visualize objects while capturing key aspects of telemetry, such as range, location, heading, altitude, etc.
  • Ability to export
