SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Echodyne, the radar platform company, is pleased to announce that Eben Frankenberg, CEO of Echodyne, has been elected “Businessman of the year 2022” by the readers of Battlespace, an international publication dedicated to the most advanced developments in the defense electronics industry. Frankenberg will receive the award at the Chepstow Military Race Day charity event hosted by Battlespace; Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA); and Chepstow Racecourse.
The event pays tribute to both serving and former members of the United Kingdom’s Armed Forces and the unwavering commitment of those cared for by veterans. The awards ceremony will take place in conjunction with six competitive horse races, with each race sponsored to raise funds on behalf of three military charities: Combat Stress, The Royal Hospital Chelsea and SSAFA.
Frankenberg accepted this award following a $135 million funding round in June to expand distribution, manufacturing and development of its proprietary metamaterials electronically scanning array (MESA®) radar in the defense, security and autonomous machine markets worldwide.
“I am honored to have been chosen as ‘Businessman of the Year’ by the Battlespace readership, which includes some of the most forward thinking military electronics specialists, defense researchers and defense industry professionals in the UK and beyond,” said Eben Frankenberg, CEO of Echodyne. “Since introducing our first radar in 2017, we have seen tremendous success with our proprietary metamaterials electronically scanned array technology, both in the United States and internationally. As we continue on our mission to be the world’s leading radar solutions company, our team couldn’t be more grateful to receive this recognition from such an important market and in front of an audience of the UK’s most dedicated compatriots.”
