Spyglass Short Range Surveillance Radar


Numerica’s new 3D radar for C-UAS & short-range air defense missions

What happens when an advanced algorithm company turns two decades of air and missile defense expertise into a precision surveillance radar, purpose-built for short-range air defense?

Introducing Spyglass radar, a short-range surveillance radar product of Numerica Corporation.


Designed to fill the need for exceptional C-UAS detection and tracking performance, Spyglass radar will be available for a broad set of applications including facility security, border surveillance, convoy and vehicle protection, air space monitoring and more.

“Spyglass radar was born out of our first-hand experience with gaps in the short-range radar market,” Nate Knight, vice president of air and missile defense at Numerica, said. “The rapidly-growing autonomous drone threat presented an opportunity to turn our attention to building a new radar from the ground up that would leverage our decades of experience solving critical air and missile defense problems and applying our proven radar processing and tracking technologies in new ways.”

Spyglass radar is designed to detect and track small, autonomous, UAS beyond three and a half kilometers with precise measurements to support a range of mitigation techniques. With a high degree of configurability and out-of-the-box support for distributed operations, Spyglass radar’s software-driven control capabilities will enable seamless integration into layered defense systems.

Superior Precision

The Spyglass radar utilizes Ku-Band Phased Array technology to provide high-precision measurements, improving targeting and classification performance at longer ranges and providing critical time for decision making and threat mitigation.

See farther + react faster

Advanced signal processing algorithms and autonomy extend the detection range of the 3D radar allowing you to see farther and faster.

Close the gap

Traditional pulse-doppler radar designs leave you blind up close, the Spyglass radar’s simultaneous transmit and receive design ensures you don’t miss the threat that’s right in front of you.

Deploy anywhere

With a rugged, solid-state design, low-power consumption and low-transmit power, the Spyglass radar is built to be deployed anywhere you need it.

Your mission, covered

With embedded C2 and AI software, the Spyglass radar is designed to enable broad-area autonomous sensor networks. Software-defined operating modes enable rapid customization to specific mission requirements.
