At IDEX 2017 on booth #05-C20, Blighter Surveillance Systems has unveiled Blighter EXPLORER NEXUS, a fully integrated, battery operated, man portable radar/camera surveillance system, designed for rapid deployment from transport backpacks by foot patrol or from a vehicle for use in remote border surveillance, temporary camp protection, forward reconnaissance and other covert operations.
Blighter EXPLORER NEXUS is a compact, lightweight and low power all weather surveillance solution and comprises the Blighter B202 Mk2 e-scan micro Doppler ground surveillance radar, an integrated visible and infrared thermal imaging camera system, a Windows HMI, covert eyepieces and optional rugged laptop. The product is designed for fully covert operation with a ‘silent’ mode and zero light emissions.
“Blighter EXPLORER NEXUS is a rapidly deployable fully integrated e-scan radar and thermal imaging system designed to provide covert all weather day/night surveillance for small border patrols in mountainous terrain and for specialist reconnaissance personnel including those operating behind enemy lines,” Mark Radford, CEO, Blighter Surveillance Systems, said. “Our new system is designed for covert foot patrol deployment in specially designed transport backpacks with the radar and camera sensors mounted on a single tripod. This means wide area detection can be up and running in a matter of minutes providing immediate protection for the military or black ops personnel.”
Blighter radar solutions are used by the US military and the British Army for force protection, and in numerous asset protection and border security applications, including monitoring the Korean Demilitarised Zone (DMZ), a buffer zone which runs 250km across the Korean peninsula and separates North and South Korea.
