ARADO is a 2D doppler radar. Its application range includes border or site surveillance.

Its purpose is to immediately detect moving objects (people, vehicles, etc).

ARADO is able to adapt its waveforms in a dynamic way, to zoom in on any part of the landscape like a camera. Through this, ARADO is able to optimise its surveillance mission from a knowledge of the field.

ARADO is dedicated to be integrated in a surveillance system, a vehicle, or to be worn by a man and used with the optional kit independently.
