Sivers IMA today announced that CAE S.p.A., a state-of-the-art system supplier of environmental monitoring systems, has selected Sivers IMA as their radar module partner for their Level Probing Radar (LPR) Hydrometer product. Under this partnership Sivers IMA will deliver FMCW radar technology allowing CAE to provide a state-of-the-art LPR Hydrometer solution.
“The LPR is now available in the market, both in a version for measuring water level in streams, rivers and reservoirs, as well as in a version for wave measurement applications. It has been a great pleasure working with Sivers IMA’s FMCW radar front end, it provides great resolution and work very well in harsh environments, which is a perfect fit for CAE LPR product”, says Lorenzo Giandomenico, Technical Director of CAE.
“This design win is yet another proof point that radar becomes more and more commonly used in many different applications. Using radar for measuring distance, speed or positioning is receiving more and more traction within the use cases that Sivers IMA is addressing. I am very pleased that Sivers IMA’s technical radar expertise and experience from high resolution and harsh environments, has been able to help CAE develop an excellent and innovative product like the LPR”, says Anders Storm, CEO of Sivers IMA.
LPR prototype has been finally approved in 2015 and the sensor has received the ETSI and the FCC certifications during 2016. Following the beginning of the industrial production, Sivers IMA has recently received a first relevant order of radar front ends for the LPR units. The components will be delivered in in two batches, one in December 2016 and the other one in January 2017.
