Spartan Radar, a Los Alamitos, Calif.-based provider of biomimetic radar solutions for automated mobility, raised $15m in Series A funding.

The round was led by Prime Movers Lab with participation from 8VC and Mac VC. In conjunction with the funding, David Siminoff, General Partner at Prime Movers Lab, who will be joining Spartan Radar’s board.

The company intends to use the funds to scale its continued efforts to recruit top talent while furthering productization of its safety technology.

Led by Founder and CEO Nathan Mintz, Spartan Radar provides a software platform that uses machine learning and edge-processing to improve existing radar performance to provide an all-weather, high-resolution sensor to support safe commercialization of L2+ autonomous mobility. The company’s Biomimetic Radar™ mimics human perception processes for enhanced focus and context; proprietary algorithms dramatically speed up processing and reduce radar’s historic shortcomings, including lower resolution and false detections, clearing the way for ADAS level 2 +safety and commercialization.

The company’s software is almost entirely hardware agnostic and can be deployed on existing radar systems.
