Blighter Surveillance Systems has received a contract for its Blighter B400 series E-scan micro Doppler ground surveillance radars from India’s Tata Power Company, Blighter announced on 24 April.

Tata Power will deploy the radars during 2018 as part of the Indian government's Comprehensive Integrated Border Management System (CIBMS). The CIBMS programme aims to establish a multi-tier security system - including ground surveillance radar, thermal cameras, unattended ground sensors, seismic vibration systems, fences and fence protection systems - to protect the country's international borders.

The Blighter radar's wide (20-degree) elevation beam ensures that the radar can operate effectively in all terrains allowing hills, mountains, plains, riverine territories and marshes to be scanned simultaneously, without the need to tilt the radar. The wide beam can also detect low flying manned and unmanned aircraft.

The solid-state passive electronically scanned array (PESA) radar senses small and slow-moving targets in cluttered environments, owing to the radar's coactive frequency modulated continuous wave micro Doppler fast-scan processing.

Mark Radford, CEO, Blighter Surveillance Systems, said: ‘This is great news for Blighter in India and further confirmation of the quality of our ultra-reliable, zero-maintenance Blighter B400 series radar. Yet again, our product outperformed all the other radars in a government-sponsored trial achieving the highest benchmarking performance and top technical score during the evaluation.'
