Ainstein UAV Standard Radar Altimeter US-D1


Ainstein’s UAV Standard Radar Altimeter US-D1 is a must-have mmWave Radar sensor, enabling autonomous takeoff and autonomous landings for drones, as well as terrain tracking commonly required for precision agriculture.

1. Built tough for tough environments

  • Water & dust proof – designed to meet the highest Ingress Protection rating requirements IP67 for water and dust
  • Robust for high speed and turbulent flight – single board electronics design leaves no room for failure
  • Solid state – no moving parts means fewer possible failure mechanisms

2. Compact Size

Fits in the palm of your hands, Ainstein UAV Standard Radar Altimeter D1 is small and light enough for your camera drones

3. Easy to Use

Plug-and-Play and CAN/URT firmware upgrade

Ainstein’s UAV Standard Radar Altimeter US-D1 is a must have for any UAV that performs autonomous take-offs and landings. In addition, it is optimized for terrain tracking commonly required for precision agriculture.

With high speed signal processing and a 100Hz update rate, the US-D1 provides a smooth readout of your altitude. It is designed to work in a multitude of environments, from mountainous terrain to tree canopies, sand to water.

Do you plan to fly over lakes or the ocean? It’s normal for your UAV’s components to get wet from the choppy water, or simply from rain or fog. Worried your expensive UAV electronics getting coated in mist from agricultural spraying, or covered in dust during takeoffs and landings?

Worry no more! We’ve designed US-D1 to meet IP67 requirements, the highest Ingress Protection rating for dust and water; so it is impervious to these conditions and more, providing better performance and a longer lifespan for your UAV.

Watch US-D1 in action! The Ready To Fly drone in the video is equipped with US-D1. US-D1 accurately measures above the ground altitude, it also provides the same high accuracy measurement over the water.
