Kelvin Hughes has received type approval for its SBS-700-2 radar system in China, the company announced on 9 May.

Part of Kelvin Hughes's family of shore-based radar systems, the SBS-700 has been specifically developed to meet the operational requirements of port, harbour and river traffic operators as well as government agencies responsible for the protection of coastal and littoral zones.

The radar features magnetron technology, incorporating a high dynamic range, a low noise front end and a field effect transistor modulator to improve range discrimination.

The radar system is suitable for deployment as a single radar site and can also be integrated into a larger radar sensor network using industry standard protocols.

Adrian Pilbeam, VP, Kelvin Hughes, said: ‘This is excellent news for Kelvin Hughes. Securing this type approval for the SBS-700-2 will allow us to respond to China’s rapidly expanding vessel traffic service and coastal surveillance market.’
