Plextek Ltd. in Great Chesterford, England, which makes the Blighter intruder-detection radar, is working with Nuriplan Co. Ltd., a provider of landscape services based in Gimpo-si, South Korea, to supply Blighter to the South Korean market. The Blighter electronic-scanning (e-scan) FMCW Doppler ground surveillance radar (GSR) provides intruder detection in difficult terrain and weather conditions. The border- and perimeter-security radar has no mechanical moving parts, and requires no routine maintenance for five years.
The Blighter radar can operate over land and water to search for intruders as small a crawling person, kayaks, and even low-flying objects. In its long-range modes, the Blighter radar can scan an area larger than 1,800 square miles to detect, identify, and intercept intruders before they reach critical areas. The agreement gives Plextek a supply channel for its radar systems, while Nuriplan will use its connections in South Korean government, commercial and military markets to support Blighter sales, including local manufacturing of the radars, training and technical support for customers, and localization of the radar software.
