What is the MRA Type 2?

Precision for controlled landings

With a range down to just 20cm, the MRA Type 2 altimeter provides the measurements necessary to facilitate safe and controlled landings in a range of conditions. High precision at 2cm makes the MRA Type 2 ideal for aerial platforms. This is a standard fit on a series of unmanned platforms.

Single transceiver with an integrated antenna

Plug and play installation

Environmentally robust and able to operate in dusty or misty conditions, as well as over water

Landing accuracy
With a range down to just 20cm, the MRA Type 2 can facilitate safe and controlled landings

Key benefits

Precision range
Operational range up to 100m and down to just 20cm, making the MRA Type 2 ideal for providing height measurements for landing, vertical take-off and low altitude flights

Compact design
Compact design and integrated antenna mean the MRA Type 2 is significantly smaller than traditional radar altimeters

Maximising payload space
Using the MRA Type 2 can offer substantial weight reduction, allowing greater payloads to be carried

Energy efficient
Consumes less than 3W on average

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.
