CAMBRIDGE, England. Blighter Surveillance Systems, the British designer and manufacturer of electronic-scanning radars and surveillance solutions, has been selected to provide a minimum of 25 target acquisition radars for a fleet of Armoured Fighting Vehicles (AFVs).
According to the company, the initial contract with a major European defense company will last for approximately three-five years, with the possibility to extend, and provide a minimum of another 60 radars in the following phase.
Blighter B400 series target acquisition radars, set to be integrated with the defensive capabilities of this fleet, are designed to provide long-range, targeting capability for the weapons system and are already in use as part of an integrated mobile border security platform deployed in Europe.
The B400 radars are intended to be versatile and suited to fixed, mobile, and portable applications. Engineered with defensive and offensive capabilities, the vehicles will be dependent on the accuracy of the target acquisition radars to achieve full operational effectiveness.
