SharpEye radar installed in Malaysia
The radars will provide vessel traffic services for the ports of Kuala Perlis, Kuala Kedah and Kuah, ensuring safe exit and entry, management and monitoring of passenger ferries and other vessels within the port areas. The company supplied the systems through partners Greenfinder and SAAB TransponderTech.
The SBS-800 range of radar systems are designed to align with the 'basic', 'standard' and 'advanced' capability types of IALA V-128. With their patented SharpEye technology, they transmit a low power pulse sequence which enables short, medium and long range radar returns to be detected simultaneously.
Doppler processing of the radar returns provides coherent information concerning target velocity and enables the detection of very small and slow moving objects with a low radar cross section. Through a series of electronic filters, the system is able to distinguish between targets of interest and sea, rain and land clutter.
