CES 2018: Fortem TrueView Radar for Drones

I interview Timothy Bean from Fortem Technologies about their new, compact radar designed for use on drones. The TrueView radar is lightweight (< 1.5 lbs), draws little power (37 W) and enables beyond visual line-of-sight autonomy for drones. This radar allows the drone operator to quickly and easily detect objects from the air at long range to avoid manned aircraft or other non-cooperative objects such as birds or other drones. Optional modules allow for complete end-to-end integration for tracking, classification, command and control, and pre-integrated autopilots. Using TrueView-equipped drones, companies can provide safe and cost-effective package delivery services, large infrastructure inspections, border patrols, etc. Once federal laws are modified, a drone equipped with the TrueView radar and a net gun can be used to locate and take down other drones flying in unauthorized areas. The setting is Pepcom at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas. Learn more at http://www.fortemtech.com/r20.html
