Kelvin Hughes to exhibit at SNA Annual National Symposium
- 10 Jan 2017
Kelvin Hughes will be exhibiting at the Surface Navy Association (SNA) 29th Annual National Symposium which is being held at Hyatt Regency Crystal City in Arlington, Virginia from the 10th to 12th January on Stand 210.
It offers an excellent opportunity to promote the full range of Kelvin Hughes’ naval radar systems based on the company’s SharpEye™ technology which is currently being deployed by 25 of the world’s navies for navigation, surface search and helicopter control.
With its solid-state electronics and Doppler processing of the radar returns, SharpEye™ ensures the early detection not only of larger vessels but also small targets - submarine periscopes, RHIBs, small wooden boats, USVs and jetskis – even in heavy rain and high sea states. Across a range of platforms, from warships to patrol boats and auxiliaries, SharpEye™ has the capacity to significantly enhance the situational awareness of any vessel’s crew.
A low peak transmission power (less than 300W) also reduces the probability of any interception by a hostile target’s ESM systems – a feature that is further enhanced by the world’s first carbon composite upmast housing.
Also being presented will be the Naval Tactical Radar Display. Compliant with the latest IMO radar performance standards and complete with tactical functionality, Enhanced Target Detection (ETD) mode, twin PPI and an intuitive HCI, the display realises the full processing advantages of the SharpEye™ radar transceiver.
The SNA was incorporated in 1985 to promote greater coordination and communication between all of those in the military, the business world and academia who share a common interest in the activities of surface naval forces. The annual symposium has been running since 1988.
