Multi-Mode Capability in Compact Package
Blighter Surveillance Systems will showcase its A800 3D multi-mode drone detection radar at DSEI in London next month – the first time the A800 has been made available to view ‘in person,’ the company announced on 3 August.
The A800 offers an innovative ground-based solution to threat detection, using multi-mode surveillance capability usually reserved for large-scale radar systems, packaging it into a smaller, more flexible device with a 20km maximum range. It is ideally suited to border and perimeter surveillance, capable of being mounted to fixed towers and masts, as well as to land vehicles and mobile surveillance trailers.
Over the last year, Blighter affirmed its partnership with South Korean integration and certification firm Dt&C, a relationship which has been a vital part of Blighter’s consolidation of its position in the South Korean market. Also, Blighter CTO Mark Radford gave a presentation to the first C-UAS Industry Action Group established by the UK Home Office’s Joint Security and Resilience Centre, offering insights into the role of radar in C-UAS and highlighting the importance of information sharing between C-UAS providers and government. His white paper on the capabilities of Blighter’s innovative multi-mode radar was also published, explaining the advantages conferred by the A800 3D multi-mode radar.
Most recently, Blighter was selected to provide advanced integrated B400 series target acquisition radars for a fleet of armoured vehicles, demonstrating the company’s agility in providing the versatile systems required for such a demanding and mobile role. In July, Blighter’s US partner JGW Group also demonstrated the highly mobile A400 series radars’ ability to detect and track sUAS targets.
