CAMBRIDGE, England, Feb. 24 (UPI) -- Ground surveillance radar by Britain's Plextek Ltd will be marketed in South Korea under an agreement with Nuriplan Co., Ltd.

The Memorandum of Understanding between the companies contains a provision for South Korean manufacturing of the Blighter radars, training and technical support services for customers.

"We have had great success in selling the Blighter radar to customers in 10 countries, including this strategic border surveillance installation in South Korea, as well as to our own British army, and to international airports and other government, defense and commercial organizations," said Mark Radford, director of Blighter solutions at Plextek.

"After pursuing the South Korean market for over seven years, we are delighted to form this strong partnership with Nuriplan for the long term supply of Blighter radars and associated technology into South Korea to enhance the country's homeland security."

The Blighter system is being used in South Korea for border surveillance.
