Kelvin Hughes is delighted to announce the launch of a new range of radar systems for commercial shipping based on its innovative, solid-state SharpEye™ technology. SharpEye™, with its Doppler processing of the radar returns, has taken situational awareness to a new level with its ability to detect more targets, at longer ranges, than conventional, magnetron-based radar systems. Delivering improvements in sub-clutter visibility of approximately 30dB, SharpEye™ can detect targets with a low Radar Cross Section (RCS), typically 0.5m2, without any picture degradation even in adverse weather conditions.

Spike Hughes, Kelvin Hughes’ Sales and Marketing Director, commented: “Kelvin Hughes has long been at the forefront of navigation radar for the world’s commercial shipping fleet. We’re confident that our new range of products – combining state-of-the-art technology with affordability – will keep us in that position in the years to come.”
