Kelvin Hughes has trumpeted benefits of its SBS-900-4 SharpEye radar system.
Selecting the right radar sensor for a Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) or Coastal Surveillance application can be challenging and trying to balance the correct radar sensor technologies with budgetary restrictions, often leads to compromising on the radar frequency band selected (X or S-Band). The problem is addressed with development of the SBS-900-4, the company announced today.
Part of the company’s SBS (Shore Based Sensors) family, the SBS-900-4 can be deployed as a single radar site or as part of a radar sensor network and has been designed in accordance with industrial standard protocols to make the work of any system integrator as easy and low-cost as possible.
With its SharpEye technology, it applies Doppler processing to the radar returns to provide superior target detection, including low-level air targets, even in the harshest of weather conditions.
Mast-mounted, the ultra-reliable SBS-900-4 is contained within an environmentally sealed enclosure. But the SBS-900-4 distinct feature is that it can operate in both X-Band and S-Band using co-located antennas.
“This costal surveillance and VTS radar solution is significantly differentiated and warrants an informative explanation of the benefits to our customers.” Spike Hughes, Kelvin Hughes’ Sales and Marketing Director said.
