Detect and Avoid Systems
for Unmanned Aircraft​

Mission Proven Solutions, Ready When You Are​

Sagetech serves up the most advanced technology core for type certifiable detect and avoid (DAA) systems for unmanned aircraft. Whether you’re flying for civil beyond-visual-line-of-sight (BVLOS) industrial applications, military IFF-enabled missions, or coming on line with new urban air mobility (UAM/AAM) platforms, Sagetech can assist you with ACAS-based situational awareness components and system design today.

Miniature. Tiny SWaP-C. Plug and play integration. Certifiable. Our solutions are proven on unmanned platforms for more than a decade, and ready to take off today.

Sagetech offers ACAS-based, certifiable DAA components and system design.





Sagetech’s new MXR Mode S interrogator for UAVs and eVTOLS delivers omni-directional active surveillance and ADS-B track validation from a single miniature SWaP solution. Includes complete ADS-B In and Out and flexible I/O featuring Ethernet.

Small, powerful, and ready to serve, Sagetech’s next-gen MXS micro transponder provides Mode S and integrated ADS-B In/Out for worldwide compliance of your unmanned system. Featuring antenna diversity and Ethernet connectivity, this transponder provides the ultimate in visibility and safety.

Pair them up in your DAA system to deliver a type certifiable solution. 



Whether you need assistance with your system design or you’d like to see our DAA system roadmap, we’d love to talk.

Easier integration. Significantly reduced SWaP-C. Type certification with ACAS sXu, Xu, and Xr compliances. We understand the drivers and requirements of this market and can guide you there.

Contact us to preview our ACAS-based DAA solutions and see how we can deliver the integration and engineering expertise it will take to launch your program.

Detect and Avoid System Applications

BVLOS commercial

Deliver cargo, inspect  utility infrastructure, survey land, and more with BVLOS flight enabled by DAA

urban air mobility aircraft

Prepare your  UAM/AAM aircraft for type certifiability with an ACAS Xr  system suitable for your mission

military Unmanned aircraft

Equip drones with an all-in-one DAA system that includes certified Mode 5 Identify Friend or Foe capabilities


Sagetech is forming partnerships across the industry to create DAA technology solutions that interoperate with next-gen technologies.

We’re interested in integrating with non-cooperative sensors, radars, satcom systems – whatever might plug in to our DAA solution for situational awareness and communication.
