Border Security Expo Demo Day

Blighter will also be hosting demonstrations of its equipment at the Border Security Expo Demo Day on the 31st March at La Copa Ranch, to an audience of specialists and customers.

Last year the Cambridgeshire-based manufacturer was selected to provide advanced integrated B400 series target acquisition radars for a fleet of Armoured Fighting Vehicles, demonstrating the company’s agility in providing the versatile systems required for such a demanding and mobile role. In July 2021, Blighter’s US partner JGW Group also delivered demonstrations of the highly mobile A400 series radars’ ability to detect and track sUAS targets. Most recently, Blighter won a contract to provide surveillance for offshore and onshore oil facilities in West Africa.

The event offers an excellent opportunity for us to showcase our cutting-edge radar solutions to a diverse audience of stakeholders and industry.
