Blighter Surveillance Systems, a British electronic-scanning (e-scan) radar and sensor solution provider, has unveiled Blighter Scout, a lightweight e-scan radar and camera surveillance system designed for rapid deployment in border security hot spots and other similar security applications.
Blighter Scout System Comprising Blighter Revolution 360 Radar and Chess Dynamics Hawkeye MR Camera Mounted on 4x4 Pickup Truck
Featuring the Blighter Revolution 360 Passive Electronic Scanning Array (PESA) radar, low light camera, thermal imaging system and an integrated radar tracker, Blighter Scout is designed for mounting on vehicle and trailer masts for field deployment in just minutes.
The Blighter Scout radar and camera surveillance system are integrated and controlled through the BlighterView HMI 2 command and control (C2) software platform enabling auto-cueing with manual override. An optional video tracking application also allows the camera system to automatically follow an intruder once the radar has cued it to the target location.
“Blighter Scout can be supplied in a palletised form complete with a standard telescopic mast ready to slide onto the back of a standard 4x4 pickup truck or other surveillance vehicles/trailers,” added Mark Radford. “The complete system requires only a single mast as the electro-optic platform is mounted on top with the radar rotating around the mast section directly below it.”
Blighter Surveillance Systems delivers an integrated multi-sensor package to systems 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 airports, coastal surveillance, and in military applications.
Blighter radar solutions are used at Heathrow and other international airports, by 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.
