Blighter Surveillance Systems develops low-cost radar

1st April 2020 - 11:00 GMT | by Flavia Camargos Pereira


Blighter Surveillance Systems has developed a low-cost and lightweight ground surveillance/vehicle-mountable radar called Orbiter, designed for military and non-military uses.

Orbiter can detect a moving vehicle at 16 km and a walking person at more than 7 km. Additionally, this radar provides Blighter’s coactive frequency-modulated continuous-wave Doppler fast-scan processing, which can detect small and slow-moving targets.

A spokesperson for Blighter told Shephard that military applications for Orbiter include reconnaissance vehicles, rapid deployment force protection vehicles, border patrol/homeland security vehicles and close protection vehicles.

Orbiter is deployable on vehicle masts or trailer masts with a 56kg mast payload and 105W power
