Located in Columbus, Ohio, GhostWave is a startup committed to revolutionizing the radar space.
Our product has applications in three main areas: Unmanned aircraft systems, automotive collision-detection sensors, and studying bees.
GhostWave aims to revolutionize the radar space by introducing an innovative approach to radar that serves to improve the safety, security, and reliability of radar systems.
Radars operate by emitting frequencies that can detect other frequencies in the vicinity. But if two radars are emitting the same frequency, they will interfere with each other and impact the ability to detect one another. Our radars send millions of random signals that eliminate the risk of interference and overlap.
With the Internet of Things (IOT) growing at an alarming rate, we need to better prepare smart infrastructures for the noise and interference to come.

GhostWave radars utilize our patented, pseudo-random radio frequency generator to solve the problems presented by other methods. By using pseudo-randomly generated radio frequencies, the likelihood of a nearby radar utilizing the exact same frequency at the exact time dramatically decreases.
We save assets (UAS and Packages) and missions by avoiding collisions. Our product offers a low cost, high performance solution that is different from any current technology.
Cameras falter as the distance between the camera and object increase, especially in poor weather conditions or other Degraded Visual Environments. Using an advanced electro-optical and infrared sensor package, our radars will have both near and distant detection abilities, as well as specific target object classification.
Current radar based sensors aren't protected from jamming and are highly susceptible to interference with other electrical devices within their range. Our RF Noise Radar uses a pseudo-random radio frequency generator and is significantly less susceptible to interference which increases safety while driving.
Current threat detection systems do not cover 360 degrees or offer much use for low altitude threats. GhostWave's low probability of detection (LPI), low probability of jamming (LPD), and stealthy radars were originally developed for the U.S. Army's low altitude threat detection and have been proven to be effective.
Honey bees today are subject to numerous natural and manmade pressures which are leading to colony loss and wild pollination extinction. GhostWave is proposing a solution of the first radar-based, non-invasive hive monitoring system, utilizing our patented radar technology to safely measure the health of a colony.
