Skyler is changing the way we think about radar surveillance and systems by designing radars as a network to solve some of today’s challenges. Skyler provides innovative data for low-altitude flights of smaller aircraft and drones, while simultaneously supporting higher altitude air traffic and high-resolution weather products for safety of people and property.
Skyler features an adaptive scanning, dual-polarization radar pencil beam that provides localized high-resolution weather data, enables small drone detection and tracking, assists in wildfire detection, and delivers elevation and geographic gap-fills. Skyler brings to life data that is nonexistent with current sensors.
Skyler can be installed as a single radar or networked together to provide long-range coverage without gaps. Building a network of software-defined, phased-array radars creates mission adaptability on the same hardware platform to serve multiple consumers simultaneously over large geographic areas.
Skyler is a surveillance platform with “apps” that support multiple missions. This is possible through the use of AESA technology, which allows Skyler to instantly steer its beam, giving applications the capability to track a storm in real-time without waiting for the radar to spin around again or optimally surveil important targets.
