Blighter Surveillance Systems has launched its latest drone detection platform, the A800 3D, which it says is ideal “for land, air and sea surveillance”.
The British company is a designer and manufacturer of electronic-scanning radars and surveillance solutions.
It said that the radar’s main function is to detect and locate commercial ‘hobby’ drones in 3D space.
Its optimised air security mode provides a unique ability to search for low-slow-small (LSS) threats caused by the misuse of small drones, including the commonly-used DJI Phantom-style quadcopters.
An artificial intelligence-based micro-Doppler target-filtering feature helps to reduce false alarms and improve the detection of multicopter and winged drones.
“We continue to develop and extend our product range to keep Blighter at the forefront of radar capability and to meet the growing global need for effective technical solutions to counter the malicious use of drones,” said Angus Hone, CEO of Blighter Surveillance Systems. “The new A800 tri-mode 3D radar offers revolutionary capabilities by performing precision surveillance in three complex environments at once using a single, cost-effective sensor.”
The A800 3D drone detection radar is designed to provide the earliest possible warning of incoming threats, by looking well beyond and above the perimeter.
It operates in harsh conditions and temperatures, from -32°C to 65°C.
