UK's Blighter Surveillance Systems has introduced a lower cost, entry level version of its Blighter B400 Series Doppler ground surveillance radar.
The British designer and manufacturer of electronic-scanning radars and surveillance solution has introduced the radar for airports and critical infrastructure sites such as oil/gas facilities, power stations or even palaces.
The BlighterView HMI 2 software has also been optimised for perimeter security allowing control over multiple radar and cameras (automatic slew-to-cue) and sophisticated alert and exclusion zones to be created, the company announced Tuesday.
Blighter engineers have also enhanced BlighterView to allow easy integration with standard video management systems (VMS) with ONVIF compliance.
Mark Radford, CEO, Blighter Surveillance Systems, said, “We have re-engineered the Blighter B400 radar to get to a price point that is attractive to this market and that will deliver improved detection at a lower cost compared with CCTV, thermal imaging systems and low cost, short range mechanically scanned radars."
The solid-state Blighter passive electronically scanned array (PESA) radar detects small and slow-moving targets - even in cluttered environments - due to the radar's coactive frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) Doppler fast-scan processing.
"Our radar's PESA technology and wide elevation beams are a big advantage for critical infrastructure sites, as it allows the radars to be mounted on top of existing site buildings" added Mark Radford.
A typical Blighter airport/critical infrastructure site configuration consists of the new Blighter B400 Series radar (90 or 180-degree scanning with detection ranges of 2km, 5km and 8km), BlighterView HMI software, and slew-to-cue PTZ (pan, tilt, zoom) thermal imaging surveillance camera systems.
Blighter Surveillance Systems will showcase the Blighter B400 series radar and other products on stand S4-154 at the DSEI Show, the world's leading defence and security event, at the ExCeL Centre, London, 12-15 September 2017.
Blighter Surveillance Systems AUDS (Anti-UAV Defence System) team, a counter-unmanned aircraft system (C-UAS) has extended its partnership agreement with Liteye Systems for sales to include local manufacturing as well as local development and customisation of the AUDS platform in North America. Liteye Systems role as integration and support partner will include local manufacturing as well as development and customisation of the AUDS counter-UAS platform; AUDS mobile trailer platform developed by Liteye for rapid deployment purposes to support national security applications, the company said in a statement Tuesday
