CAMBRIDGE, England, Nov. 14 (UPI) -- A lightweight mobile scan radar for military and security applications has been introduced by Blighter Surveillance Systems of Britain.

The Blighter Revolution 360 has a mast payload of 83.7 pounds, consumes less than 100 watts of power and can detect small and slow-moving objects -- a person walking at a distance of 4.6 miles, for example -- through the use of frequency modulated continuous wave, Doppler fast-scan processing.

"With Blighter Revolution 360 we are now able to offer all the benefits of our best value, long-range B400 series radar, in a format that is attractive to the price- and weight-conscious mobile surveillance market," said Mark Radford, chief executive officer of Blighter Surveillance Systems

Blighter said the system can be mounted on vehicles or used on a trailer mast, providing 360-degree coverage. It has 20-degree continuous elevation beam coverage that can be increased to 40-degrees with an optional tilt option. The system is also designed so it can sit beneath an integrated electro-optic camera system.

"This is a big advantage in this market as many customers will want to slew a thermal camera system to track intrusions and allow fast identification of any possible threat," Radford said.
