Showcasing SharpEye™ SxV Lightweight and Deployable Radar at AUSA
- 13 Oct 2014
Kelvin Hughes is delighted to announce that it will be showcasing their SharpEye™ SxV lightweight and deployable radar at AUSA 2014 in Washington D.C. from October 13th to 15th on stand no. 1712. This will be the first time that the SxV – a lightweight, easily deployable, best-in-class radar – will be exhibited in the U.S.
SharpEye™ SxV and Kelvin Hughes’ innovative Single Mast Solution (SMS) equipped with a simple mounting interface, can be securely attached to any mast system – whether portable, vehicle-mounted or on a fixed structure. Fitted with the SharpEye™ SxV radar and integrated with a wide range of electro-optical sensors the system suits most operational requirements. Additional mounted options include thermal imaging cameras, long range and/or low-light optical sensors and even searchlight or loud hailing systems.
The Kelvin Hughes SharpEye™ SxV is a lightweight version of its X-Band Long Range SharpEye™ radar. Its payload (circa 18kg) combined with its excellent detection performance, deriving from its solid state (i.e. no magnetron) technology, provides users with an unrivalled, lightweight, radar capability that can detect even small, moving targets in adverse weather conditions.
When the SharpEye™ SxV, as part of the SMS, is deployed with Kelvin Hughes’ CxEye™ control and integration software, the user is able to gain full situational awareness by combining radar, and camera images. CxEye™ can be displayed on a laptop or touchscreen device. Designed for ease of use, CxEye™ geo-references radar tracks on a selection of mapping tools and combines tracking and track fusion from multiple sensors in a single display, with fast ‘slew to cue’ functionality it creates a recognised situational awareness picture through a ‘detect, recognise, identify and classify’ methodology.
Jonathan Field, Director Security Sensors and Systems at Kelvin Hughes commented:
“When combined, the superior technology of the SharpEye™ SxV radar and CxEye™ software, our solution offers customers an unrivalled opportunity to deploy a state-of-the-art surveillance suite both rapidly and cost-effectively. We’re very much looking forward to demonstrating the benefits our technology can provide at AUSA 2014.”
