Blighter’s ‘B202/B303 Portable Radar Systems’ are fully integrated off-the-shelf GSRs (Ground Surveillance Radars). Their primary mission is the detection of walking or crawling persons and vehicles in cluttered environments. Additionally, they can detect drones deliberately being flown close to the ground in order to avoid detection.

The systems are designed for rapid deployment from Peli-style transit cases and/or backpacks and can be used for:

         Urban battlefield reconnaissance
         Remote border surveillance
         Camp protection
         Other covert operations

Deployment

The systems are ideally suited to vehicle-based operation and deployment. The Portable Radar Systems are supplied with a tall tripod allowing deployment on flat ground or from an elevated position on a hilltop or building. The systems may be powered from batteries or mains power and a wired Ethernet link is used to remotely operate the equipment.

The systems can be mains powered using the supplied 110/230 V mains PSU or can be DC powered using commonly available 12 to 24 V Li-ion or Lead-acid batteries. The systems are also supplied with a reel of network cable allowing the laptop to be operated in a more convenient location.

For ease of operation and training, the Windows-based laptop is pre-installed with the BlighterView HMI Command & Control (C2) package. This includes background mapping facility, target ‘spotlighting mode’ for Doppler audio target identification, and alert zone creation.

Coverage

The B202 Mk 2 radar covers a horizontal azimuth scan sector of 90°. The B303 radar covers a horizontal azimuth scan sector of 180°. For 360° surveillance a pair of B303 radar systems can be operated back-to-back with both radars displayed on a single laptop display. Both radar types provide a wide vertical elevation coverage up to 20° allowing good coverage of low ground when mounted high on buildings or the peaks and valleys in hilly terrain.

Summary of Portable Radar Systems

The B202/B303 Portable Radar Systems are complete, off-the-shelf, rapidly deployable ground target and low drone surveillance systems, with both mains and battery power options. Target speeds ranging from a crawl to over 400 km/h are all detected.
