Blighter’s E-scan radar for Indian pilot programme

19th February 2019 - 09:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Blighter Surveillance Systems has supplied its Blighter B400 series E-scan micro Doppler ground surveillance radar to Dat-Con Defence for Indian Border Security pilot programme, the company announced on 14 February.

Dat-Con Defence has deployed the Blighter B400 series radar on the Indian border as part of a pilot of the Indian government’s Comprehensive Integrated Border Management System (CIBMS). CIBMS has been designed to provide multi-layer security– ground surveillance radar, thermal cameras, unattended ground sensors, seismic vibration systems, fences and fence protection systems – to protect the country’s borders.

Dat-Con has integrated the Blighter radar, cameras and other sensors into its C2 system. Sensor information from its C2 system is integrated with the CIBMS system to alert quick response teams.

The radar’s coactive frequency modulated continuous wave micro Doppler fast-scan processing allows the solid-state passive electronically scanned array radar to detect small and slow-moving targets, even in cluttered environments. The radar delivers round-the-clock, all-weather, persistent surveillance capability in all terrains. The Blighter radar’s wide elevation beam provides detection of low flying manned and UAS.

For this pilot project, Dat-Con partnered with India’s Ador Powertron.

Stane Plaskan, CEO of Dat-Con Defence, said: ‘Also, we know that this radar is highly effective in difficult terrains – such as mountains, plains and coastal areas, as it has been deployed for many years now along the 250km Korean DMZ, in what is considered one of the world’s most mountainous countries with environmental extremes of -30ºC in winter and a humid +40ºC in summer.’
