About us

ECHOES s.r.l. is an Italian Small-Medium Enterprise born in July 2015.

ECHOES is mainly involved in the design, development and commercialization of low emission, small size and low energy consumption radar systems.

ECHOES was born as a spin-off company of CNIT (Inter University Consortium for Telecommunications) and it is strongly linked with its National Laboratory of Radar and Surveillance Systems (RaSS). Nowadays, the company is operating within the business incubator of Polo Tecnologico in Navacchio (Pisa). ECHOES has also obtained the status of spin-off company from University of Pisa in January 2016 and it is registered as “Innovative Startup” since February 2016.


ECHOES offers products and services within radar technologies framework. ECHOES segmented its market in four main areas: terrain & infrastructure monitoring, maritime traffic control, space applications and airborne systems.

Our expertise lies in the following areas:

  • Hardware solutions
  • FPGA based signal processing
  • Embedded systems
  • Radar imaging (SAR, ISAR)
  • Beamforming
  • Multichannel and multistatic systems
  • MIMO radar
  • Detection and tracking processing
  • Automatic Target Recognition
  • Change Detection.

The innovation proposed by ECHOES is in the components of the radar system and software solutions for signal processing. The products offered by ECHOES exploit frequencies up to Ku-band (0-18 GHz).
Also the use of compact and stationary antennas minimizes the footprint of each sensor allowing its easy installation on existing structures thus reducing installation costs.
The ECHOES’ products are the result of years of research and prototyping.
These prototypes were designed, developed and tested in the field at national and international research projects, where innovation and efficiency of such devices were the added value compared to existing products on the market.


Advisors & co-founders:

  • 3 University professors;

  • 9 Post-Doc researchers.

Their expertise is within radar system design, low power radar system development, radar signal and data processing.
Founder members developed their expertise at the Department of information Engineering of the University of Pisa and at the National Laboratory RaSS of CNIT, as post-doc researchers and PhD students involved in research and development activities related to radar remote sensing.
Echoes has the license for the utilization of RaSS laboratory facilities that is equipped with all instrumentation needed for analysis, design, implementation and test of the innovative radar systems.
ECHOES is based in Pisa at the National Laboratory RaSS (Radar and Surveillance Systems) of CNIT.
The company’s main object is the development and marketing of hardware, software products and innovative services with high technological value related to radar, surveillance systems and ICT systems.
