Prototype Miniaturized Radar for sUAS
While manned aircraft have used onboard radar for decades, the size and cost of the equipment has limited its use primarily to large, unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). Lei Shi, founder of UAVradars in Lawrence, Kansas, is trying to change this. His company—a spinoff from research conducted for NASA at the University of Kansashas developed a miniaturized radar for use on small, fixed-wing UAS which Shi expects will help with their integration into the national airspace.
