Autonomous Drone Landing & Takeoff System

Compact. Simple to use. All weather-proof radar altimeters.

Introduction to Smart Drone/ UAV Landing/ Takeoff

Ainstein designs, develops, and deploys intelligent radar systems for small drones, eVTOL and UAVs.

Our radars are:

  • Highly accurate and smooth above-the-ground altitude reading, especially over water, grass, brush and other challenging environments
  • Same high-performance in low-light or no light conditions, such as rain, fog, darkness and more
  • Customer-proven for accurate terrain tracking commonly required for precision agriculture
  • Essential for BVLOS UAV operation, ensuring safe autonomous take off and autonomous landing
  • More reliable altitude readouts due to increases in processing power
  • Ability to include multiple US-D1 altimeters without cross-radar interference for sensor redundancy configuration or sensor multiplexing for enhanced detection

Use Cases for our Radars:

  • Agriculture Monitoring
  • Agriculture Spraying
  • Detect and Avoid Buildings, Vehicles, Tree Branches, Powerlines Ground Surfaces, Parcel Delivery, and more

The Challenge of Out-of-the-box vs Autonomous

Operating at distance

relying on telemetry data and onboard cameras is challenging

Flying below not above

mistakes lead to a 100% loss of UAV

ok over land but not over water or in inclimate weather

The Benefits of Smart Landing


With rugged design and considerations for small and mid-size UAVs, our intelligent radar sensors are ultra compact and low power-consumption.


Modular antenna design, real-time firmware update, FPGA and sensor fusion, and advanced digital signal processing (DSP) allows you to easily and quickly customize for your own applications.


Packed with the latest radar technology, advanced digital signal processing (DSP) algorithm, cutting-edge antenna design and more.

How our customers react to our altimeter solutions

We at Jetpack Aviation are very excited to implement Ainstein’s radar altimeter technology in our Jetpacks because there is no other technology out there that will give us such an accurate and responsive measurement no matter what surface we are flying over. Our main goal is to keep our JetPack as light and compact as possible and Ainstein’s radar altimeter fits perfectly with our vision.

Boris Jarry

Operations Manager, JetPack Aviation, Inc.

I’ve been very satisfied with Ainstein’s radar products. Ainstein is the only drone radar provider on the market with high performance and low price in a single package. I don’t see any other manufacturers with the same capabilities and value.

“Many people will use a laser or LiDAR range finder. Great over land but once we hit the water, the numbers went all over the place. We looked at other LiDAR range finders and different powers. We also looked at sonar, but unfortunately sonar’s got a very short range… We found Ainstein. It just plain works. “

Benefit & Profit

Why Radar?

  • No Camera means no privacy or sensitive issues
  • Ultra-low power consumption. The radiation is only one-tenth of Bluetooth which is harmless to human body
  • Long detection distance which is suitable for various installation heights
  • The detection range can be set freely, which is suitable for spatial areas of different sizes and shapes
  • Not affected by environmental obstacles, such as smoke, dirt, low light, heat sources, etc.
