Kelvin Hughes supplies its SharpEye™ radar transceivers into environmental and safety applications bringing benefits through ultra-high reliability, low cost of ownership, and superior performance. There are numerous applications where SharpEye™ is detecting extremely small targets such as flocks of birds, ultra-lights and even livestock over land and sea environments. Although these applications are not marine based, this market area has grown from the radar detection and sensor development of the maritime systems applications.
Kelvin Hughes works with expert partners to empower their solutions to environmental and or safety driven applications with the capability of the SharpEye™ radar transceiver. New applications are evolving constantly that lend themselves to the introduction of a SharpEye™ radar transceiver and antenna as a primary sensor for detection of small and difficult to detect targets in a cost effective and highly reliable manner.
Being able to detect and track large and small targets such as approaching low flying aircraft, livestock, wild animals, birds and bats, enables appropriate actions to be taken or risk and safety cases to be developed easily, when integrated by the expert solution provider with their data collection and analysis system.
It has been proven that the cost of implementing a radar based sensor solution pays back immediately when assessed against the risk of not meeting legislation or laws put in place to protect the environment, wildlife and human safety. Being able to see the target reliably at long and short range that you wish to protect or protect others from is a distinct advantage in risk mitigation.
