Kelvin Hughes provides the world's Ports Authorities and Vessel Traffic Management Services (VTMS) with state of the art radar systems for the management, safety and, security of busy shipping lanes, ports, waterways and coastlines.

The Shore Based Sensor (SBS) radar range is specifically designed to meet the requirements of a Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) or coastal surveillance system as defined in IALA recommendation V-128.

Kelvin Hughes works with system integrators to enable the correct solution to be specified according to the end user's requirements.

Kelvin Hughes SBS-700 (non-coherent), SBS-800 and SBS-900 (both fully coherent) radars systems have been designed to align with the 'Basic', 'Standard' and 'Advanced' capability types of IALA V-128. SBS-800/900 radars have been equipped with SharpEye™ providing the user with the ability to detect co-operative and uncooperative targets at longer ranges, earlier and in heavy rain and high sea states.

With hundreds of commissioned SBS systems worldwide operating reliably every day in ports, along coastline and on offshore oil and gas platforms and FPSOs, Kelvin Hughes radars are proven in any coastal and offshore surveillance environment.
