Blighter present surveillance capabilities at AUSA Now 2020

CAMBRIDGE, UK, October 12, 2020 – Blighter Surveillance Systems (www.blighter.com), a world-leading provider of radar and surveillance equipment, will be exhibiting virtually at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) annual exposition between 13-16 October 2020.

Blighter manufacture electronic-scanning radars, delivering round the clock all-weather security protection along borders, for coastal facilities, at military bases, and to guard critical national infrastructure such as airports, oil and gas facilities and palaces. Blighter radars are currently deployed in some 35 countries around the world, protecting military bases and securing land borders and coastlines.

The company recently launched its A800 radar, capable of performing air, ground and sea detection all simultaneously and able to detect and locate commercial “hobby” drones in 3D space. With small drones increasingly acknowledged as a key modern threat to secure locations from airports to military bases, Blighter is leading the market in advanced detection capabilities.

Blighter will use AUSA Now 2020 to demonstrate the A800 for the US audience, where there is significant demand for this capability, across valuable defence and national security sites.

Angus Hone, CEO, Blighter Surveillance Systems said:

“Blighter products are proven to protect and secure a range of locations against intruders and threats, and we look forward to presenting our market-leading capabilities, such as the new A800 radar, to the United States’ military audience.”
