Upward Radar Device Submitted to FCC for Approval

A drone technology company has filed a request with the U.S. Federal Communications Commission to approve a new “upward radar” device that can potentially be used in advanced drone-related scanning operations.

According to an article posted on the Drone DJ website, the upward radar device is based on a new technology developed by DJI, an established drone company based in Guangdong, China. It is described in the company’s FCC filing as “DXX – Part 15 Low Power Communication Device Transmitter,” which operates on the 24.15 GHz frequency.

An FCC test report of the device confirms the basic information contained in the Drone DJ website article, stating that the device is “an Upward Radar…(that) contains a 24 GHz compatible module enabling the user to detect the object from the blindside through a radar detector.”
