A world leader in radar systems for security and surveillance applications as well as maritime navigation, Kelvin Hughes is delighted to announce the launch of its new drone detection system at the Home Office Security & Policing exhibition, which was held in London from 7-9 March. The SMS-D is the first integrated, medium-range, radar-based surveillance system designed for the detection and tracking of small aerial targets.
Whether used maliciously or just irresponsibly, drones represent a new threat to our security. The SMS-D tracks the real-time position of these aerial targets, including those that could be used to attack infrastructure, vehicles or individuals as well as those that may be used for hostile observation or smuggling. Based on the company's solid-state SharpEye X-Band solid-state radar transceiver technology, the system is able to detect drones up to 1.5kms away.
Highly cost-effective, the SMS-D provides continuously updated bearing, distance, altitude and velocity data. The latest addition to the Kelvin Hughes SMS (Single Mast Solution) range, it identifies targets automatically through its video tracking system, ensuring that any remedial or defensive action can be implemented without delay.[Full Story.]
