CAMBRIDGE, England. Blighter Surveillance Systems, British designer and manufacturer of electronic-scanning radars and surveillance solutions, has announced the launch of the latest in its range of counter-unmanned aerial system (C-UAS) radars, the A800 3D drone detection radar for land, air, and sea surveillance.

According to the company, the radar's main function is to detect and locate commercial 'hobby' drones in 3D space. Its optimized air security mode provides a unique ability to search for low-slow-small (LSS) threats caused by the misuse of small drones including the commonly-used 'DJI Phantom' style quadcopters. An artificial intelligence (AI) based micro-Doppler target filtering feature helps to reduce false alarms and improve the detection of multicopter and winged drones.

The A800 3D drone detection radar is designed to provide the early warning of incoming threats by looking beyond and above the perimeter. Its rugged design is intended to allow it to operate in harsh conditions and temperatures, and an extended operating temperature version is also available. It is designed to be mounted onto tripods and quadpods, land vehicles and trailers, and fixed towers and masts for surveillance.
