it's time for radar

Just as the digital camera has propagated over the last 20 years or so, and more recently the deployment of LiDAR for perception, now it’s time for radar.  At Zadar we see a future where every system that perceives the world is better with radar.

Our vision is to empower critical perception systems with flexible, high performance radar platforms. We don’t make black boxes, we collaborate and build solutions. Our focus is on opening up new opportunities to advance autonomous systems’ capabilities and safety.

Our founders, Mahmoud and Mo saw a need for better radar. Both coming from a background in autonomous vehicle development, they experienced first hand the many barriers to radar implementation as well as the challenges in performance. Zadar was founded on the idea that radar should be a tool, not a hurdle.
