New I-Band Navigation and Tactical Radar from Kelvin Hughes
- 20 Sep 2007
Kelvin Hughes launches its new SharpEye™ I-Band navigation and tactical radar at DSEi 2007.
Able to provide superb performance in clutter for navigation safety, the detection of small fast attack craft (FIAC) and tracking of small helicopter targets, the system is ideally suited to meet the demands of today’s tactical environment.
Launched at this year’s DSEi exhibition at London’s Excel, the new SharpEye™ I-Band meets these safety and detection requirements and has been developed as the world’s first new technology navigation and surveillance radar.
SharpEye™ features improved target detection in clutter and fills the FIAC detection capability gap. It offers a dual speed antenna capability and a reduced probability of intercept mode. The flexibility of interfacing and output supports both digital and analogue outputs. These features combined with the high reliability and reduced through life costs make the new SharpEye™ I-Band the radar of the future for navigation on naval platforms.
Incorporating the latest in solid state, pulse Doppler and signal processing technologies, SharpEye™ offers performance previously only possible in extremely expensive military or civil aviation surveillance radar. Combining this with the reliability of a completely solid-sate solution gives SharpEye™ the edge in this demanding market.
