Americans buy Cambridge radar tech for Korean surveillance project
Radar display pioneer Cambridge Pixel has sold its technology to Klein Marine Systems, a New Hampshire-based subsidiary of Mitcham Industries, Inc. as part of a project to protect an offshore wind farm and its associated submarine transmission line off the coast of South Korea.
Mitcham Industries is headquartered in Texas and quoted on the American technology exchange, NASDAQ.
Cambridge Pixel’s radar display, tracking and recording technology has been integrated with the radar, daylight/thermal cameras, an AIS receiver and long-range acoustic device (LRAD) as part of Klein’s HarborGuard maritime security and surveillance solution.
The local integrator is Seoul-based iSENTECK. The surveillance system monitors vessel traffic around the wind farm and along a 10km submarine transmission line carrying power from an offshore platform transmission station to the onshore distribution facility.
Andrew Haylett, principal engineer, Cambridge Pixel, said: “Our software’s comprehensive support for generating alarms for vessels moving into a defined area around the protected zone was a key feature for Klein as it facilitates automatic steering of the camera towards the detected target and the ability to sound an audible alarm or signal using the strobe searchlight.”
RadarWatch is designed for coastal surveillance, small port & harbour security applications.
Cambridge Pixel’s radar technology is used in naval, air traffic control, vessel traffic, commercial shipping, security, surveillance and airborne radar applications.
