Blighter Surveillance Systems, the British designer and manufacturer of electronic-scanning radars and surveillance solutions, will be showcasing its cutting-edge A800 3D Multi-Mode Drone Detection Radar and B400 radar at IDEX 2023 in Abu Dhabi. Blighter will be exhibiting on the UK Defence & Security Exports Stand No. 03-C34.

Blighter’s A800 radar offers an innovative ground-based solution to threat detection, utilising multi-mode surveillance capability usually reserved for large-scale radar systems and packaging it into a smaller, more flexible radar with a maximum range of 20km. The B400 series of tactical radars are designed to provide long-range ground surveillance to detect moving vehicles and individuals at up to 32km, benefitting from an unsurpassed level of ground clutter cancellation resulting in a low false alarm rate.

Both the A800 and B400 radars are well-suited to border and perimeter surveillance, capable of being mounted to fixed towers and masts, as well as to land vehicles (including UGVs and Armoured Vehicles) and mobile surveillance trailers. Blighter’s International Business Development Manager, Richard Morgan, will be present on the stand to brief stakeholders on the best-in-class capabilities of the systems.

IDEX 2023 will take place at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) in Abu Dhabi, UAE, from 20th – 24th February.

Blighter CEO, James Long said:

“Blighter is an established provider of cutting-edge threat detection solutions to our customers in the Middle East. We are looking forward to showcasing our best-in-class e-scanning radars, and to be exhibiting on UK Defence & Security Exports stand, representing the best of UK technology on the international stage.”
