Unique radar from Plextek

Plextek, the Chesterford Research Park-based radar firm, launched what it describes as a totally unique and world leading radar at the world-renowned international Farnborough Airshow.Plextek, the Chesterford Research Park-based radar firm, launched what it describes as a totally unique and world leading radar at the world-renowned international Farnborough Airshow.

The Blighter 202 radar can detect moving objects up to several kilometres away and Plextek believe there is nothing available for a similar cost or specification on the market in the world at the moment.

Once the radar has detected a moving object it can be used alongside security cameras which can home in on the person or object.

While it can be used to protect airports airfields and oil & gas pipelines and has many military applications, Plextek has had an enquiry from an airfield in Africa, where they are interested in the Blighter to let landing aircraft know the runway is clear of wild animals.
