CAMBRIDGE. Blighter Surveillance Systems Ltd., British designer and manufacturer of electronic-scanning (e-scan) radars and counter-drone solutions, has enhanced its Blighter A400 series counter-drone air security radar to better detect and report low, slow, and small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).
The ruggedised Blighter A400 series counter-UAV radar has been optimized with the addition of 40-degree antennas, Digital Drone Detection technology, and an adaptable digital signal processing platform.
Blighter engineers are also providing a software development kit to systems integrators, primes, and the military to ease integration of the radar with other sensors, C2 systems, as well as with kinetic and non-kinetic disruptors.
According to the company, this will allow the A400 series to better extract the tiny radar reflections from modern plastic bodied drones even when flying close to the ground or near buildings where clutter reflections are relatively large.
