July 16, 2020
LITHUANIA. HENSOLDT UK, manufacturer of Kelvin Hughes SharpEye radar systems, announced that the Lithuanian State Border Guard Service (SBGS) has selected variants of the company’s SBS-900 X-band SharpEye long range coastal surveillance radar to ensure the safe management and monitoring of vessels in the coastal waters of Lithuania.
According to the company, HENSOLDT UK’s shore-based radars were specifically developed to meet the operational requirements of port, harbor, and river traffic operators as well as government agencies responsible for the protection of coastal and littoral zones.
Working with the local integrator, Telekonta, the mast mounted SBS-900 were selected to meet the requirements of the Lithuanian SBGS for detection of small targets at long ranges. This is in line with IALA Guideline No. 1111 (May 2015) for advanced level detection.
The HENSOLDT UK solution does not require an air-conditioned enclosure at the top of the mast. Compared to competitor solutions, the SBS-900 thus comes at reduced system integration and infrastructure costs.
