A new radar camera system for surveillance purposes has been unveiled recently. Blighter Surveillance Systems, a British electronic-scanning radar & sensor solution provider, has exposed Blighter Explorer Nexus, a fully integrated, battery operated, portable radar-camera surveillance system. The device is a compact, lightweight and low power all weather surveillance solution. The product is designed for fully covert operation with a ‘silent’ mode and zero light emissions.

The radar provides rapid detection and location of moving targets. For example, it can detect a crawler at 1.5 km (0.9 miles) and a moving vehicle at 8 km (5 miles). The radar cues a long-range camera to enable the operator to identify any target. According to, one of the advantages of the system is that it is backpack mounted and can be operated by a single user.  

Mark Radford, CEO, Blighter Surveillance Systems, explained: “Blighter Explorer Nexus is designed to provide covert surveillance all weather, day or night for small border patrols in mountainous terrain and for specialist reconnaissance personnel including those operating behind enemy lines”.

The company delivers an integrated multi-sensor package to systems integrators comprising the Blighter radars plus cameras, thermal imagers, trackers and software solutions.

Blighter radar solutions are used by the U.S. military and the British Army for force protection, and in numerous asset protection and border security applications, including monitoring the Korean Demilitarised Zone (DMZ), a buffer zone which runs 250 km across the Korean peninsula and separates North and South Korea.
