The MMI-series radars

Top Performance in a Compact Package

aiRadar’s Multi-Mode Interferometer (MMI) series provides a modular radar system that is lightweight and energy-efficient, offering top performance in various challenging applications. Operating in the V-band, these radar systems deliver exceptional accuracy and reliability across a range of uses.

MMI series radars are software-configured in two ways: as conventional Active Electronically Scanned Array radars, with Elevation Interferometry and Moving Target Indication (MTI) capability; or, as Ultra High-Resolution Synthetic Aperture (5cm resolution) Radar (SAR) with Interferometry, Digital Surface Modeling and Moving Target Indication.

Product Models:
There are three models in the MMI series. Each model offers different levels of power, coverage, and storage, ensuring there’s a solution for every need.

Core Capabilities:
All MMI models come pre-loaded with optimized modes for:

  • Detecting drones and other targets
  • Micro-Doppler analysis (detecting subtle movement patterns)
  • Interferometry (measuring elevation with high precision)
  • Electronic scanning (+/- 45 degrees)
  • Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)

The MMI series works exceptionally well for:

  • Situational awareness
  • Detection, tracking and identification of small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS)
  • Airborne C-sUAS
  • Dynamic positioning (measuring positions precisely even with non-cooperative targets)
  • Cognitive Adaptive Radar

Standards & Reliability:
Every aiRadar product meets rigorous aerospace standards (MIL-STD-810) to ensure reliability in harsh environments. They are built to withstand extreme shocks, vibrations, and moisture, with IP67-rated protection, all while remaining lightweight and compact.
