UNTERSCHLEISSHEIM, Germany, Oct. 20 (UPI) -- Cassidian of Germany has introduced a new security radar for wide-area protection of sensitive industrial or military installations.

"Our new radar is the first operational security radar using the latest digital beam forming technology, which enables the early detection even of single pedestrians in all weather conditions," said Elmar Compans, head of Cassidian Sensors anmd Electronic Warfare.

"Thus, SPEXER 1000 gives police or security forces additional reaction time in order to deal with illegal intruders."

SPEXER 1000 is a security radar optimized for surveillance of critical infrastructure such as oil fields, power plants, harbors, airports or military camps. With an instrumented range up to 11 miles and an extremely high update rate, it is able to detect suspicious movements on the ground, in the air or over sea at a very early stage.

This is particularly true for very small and slowly moving objects that are reliably detected as SPEXER 1000 exploits high Doppler resolution, Cassidian said.

SPEXER 1000 is part of Cassidian's SPEXER security radar family, which consists of several sensors, each optimized for specific applications in the fields of border, infrastructure, perimeter and coastal surveillance.

A specific version for border surveillance, SPEXER 2000, is under production for a huge border surveillance system in the Middle East; a military version has been developed for the German army.
