Blighter to showcase E-scan Radars and C-UAV AUDS at MSPO 2018

Posted 30 August 2018 · Add Comment

British designer and manufacturer of electronic-scanning (E-scan) radars and surveillance solutions, Blighter Surveillance Systems Ltd., will showcase its range of e-scan micro-Doppler ground radars and the military grade counter-UAV AUDS (Anti-UAV Defence System) at MSPO 2018, an international defence industry exhibition which takes place in Kielce, Poland from 4-7 September 2018.

Blighter Surveillance Systems is partnering at MSPO with its in-country security systems integrator Linc Polska to highlight its range of maintenance free solid-state passive electronically scanned array (PESA) radars. Blighter radars are already deployed in 35 countries to deliver round the clock all-weather protection along borders, for coastal facilities, at military bases and to guard critical national infrastructure such as airports, oil and gas facilities and palaces.

The Blighter B202 Mk 2 man-portable battery-operated radar is to be presented at MSPO. It is designed for rapid deployment (wide area detection which can be up and running in a matter of minutes) from transport backpacks by foot patrol, or from a vehicle, for use in remote border surveillance, temporary camp protection, forward reconnaissance and other covert operations.

This radar provides rapid detection and location of moving targets. For example, it can detect a crawler at 1.5 km (0.9 miles) and a moving vehicle at 8 km (5 miles). The radar is tripod mounted, integrates seamlessly with infra-red sensors to automatically cue a camera to enable the operator to identify any target. For fully covert operation, the radar is also available as part of Blighter Explorer Nexus with an integrated visible and infra-red thermal imaging camera system, a Windows HMI, covert eyepieces and optional rugged laptop.

Blighter’s air security and drone detection capabilities will also be on display, as the Blighter A400 series radar is an integral part of the AUDS system, a fully integrated military grade detect-track-identify-defeat counter drone solution.

The AUDS system, already successfully deployed by several governments, including US forces, was developed in 2015 by a consortium of UK defence companies including Blighter Surveillance Systems, Chess Dynamics and Enterprise Control Systems. The AUDS system has an intuitive interface, is operable by a single user, and can detect, track, identify and defeat a drone in approximately 15 seconds at a range of up to 10 km or six miles.

Mark Radford, CEO, Blighter Surveillance Systems, said: “MSPO provides an opportunity for Blighter to showcase our products to tens of thousands of visitors from 27 different countries and to support Linc Polska, our in-country partner. We are also presenting a paper at the event on the advantages of electronic scanning surveillance radar for ground and air security applications.”

Blighter radar solutions are used by the US military and the British Army for force protection and in numerous asset protection and border security applications, including monitoring the Korean Demilitarised Zone (DMZ), a buffer zone which runs 250 km across the Korean peninsula and separates North and South Korea, on the US Southern border and in several Middle Eastern countries.

Blighter Surveillance Systems delivers an integrated multi-sensor package to system integrators comprising the Blighter radars plus cameras, thermal imagers, trackers and software solutions. Its ITAR-free systems are used worldwide in commercial, government and defence markets in area and asset protection for national border security, homeland security, critical infrastructure protection such as oil and gas facilities, coastal surveillance, and in military applications.
