What is the MRA Type 1?

Designed for unmanned platforms

Designed for plug and play installation, the MRA Type 1 is environmentally robust and will operate in dusty or misty conditions, as well as over water. The MRA Type 1 is an ideal fit for target drones that operate at high speeds and require high maneuverability. This is a standard fit on a series of unmanned platforms.

Parts of our MRAs have been to Mars

We are proud to have worked on the British Beagle 2 Mars Lander. Our Miniature Radar Altimeter was used to deploy the air bags to cushion its landing on Mars on Christmas Day 2003. Infamously, contact was lost with the lander when it began its descent to the Martian surface. In 2015, NASA found it was the lander’s solar panels that failed to deploy.
