Kelvin Hughes has won a contract by VisSim to supply 11 SharpEyeT radar sets for the protection of offshore facilities in Azerbaijan.
As part of VisSim's Marine Asset Protection and Surveillance System, Kelvin Hughes will be providing 10 SBS-800-1 (3.7m antenna) systems for offshore production platforms in the Caspian Sea, typically two radars per platform, and one SBS-800-2 (5.5m antenna) that will be installed onshore.
Using a fibre optic connection being developed by Kelvin Hughes, the offshore SharpEyeT transceivers will be able to transmit more data at higher speeds, ensuring improved picture quality at the radar display. In addition, this technology will deliver greater reliability with lower installation costs at the same time as improving offshore safety by reducing the number of electrical connections.
The onshore SBS-800-2 system will comprise an upmast X-Band SharpEyeT radar transceiver with a low profile antenna - the adoption of an upmast solution highlighting the high reliability and maintenance-free characteristics of SharpEyeT.
Full installation of the radars, following a planned programme of testing, is scheduled for August 2014.
Spike Hughes, Kelvin Hughes' Sales and Marketing Director, commented: "We're confident that SharpEyeT will deliver everything VisSim needs to protect the Azerbaijan offshore facilities they have been contracted to supply. Representing a significant advance on current marine radar technology with its ability to separate targets from clutter, SharpeyeT provides greatly improved situational awareness even in adverse weather conditions."
Kelvin Hughes today announced that the Irish Naval Service has selected the SharpEye radar and the MantaDigital display for the incremental upgrade of its fleet. The ships of the Irish Naval Service operate in some of the harshest maritime conditions, including the North Atlantic, and the decision in favour of SharpEye was strongly influenced by the enhanced situational awareness that the radar system can provide, particularly in adverse conditions and high sea states
