Kelvin Hughes is delighted to announce that it will be displaying its new Single Mast Solution (SMS) at Counter Terror Expo 2014 from April 29-30. This will be the first time that the SMS – a lightweight, easily deployable, best-in-class radar and electro-optical system – has been exhibited in Europe.  



Equipped with a simple mounting interface, the SMS can be securely attached to any mast system – whether portable, vehicle-mounted or on a fixed structure –.Fitted with the SharpEye  SxV radar and integrated with a wide range of electro-optical sensors the SMS can suit most operational requirements. Additional mounted options include thermal imaging cameras, long range and/or low-light optical sensors and even searchlight or loud hailing systems.
 


Featuring a through-shaft unit, the SMS provides a 360° pan and tilt capability with no blind arcs, enabling sensors/cameras to be mounted either side of the mechanism with SharpEye  SxV radar mounted directly above. The radar is elevated above the cameras and is free from interference from any supporting structure; it is therefore in the optimum position to provide all-round coverage. The sensors or cameras can be operated independently of the radar with full rotation, pan tilt as all control cables are discreetly housed.



The Kelvin Hughes SharpEye  SxV is a lightweight version of its X-band Long Range SharpEye  radar. Its payload (circa 18kg) combined with its excellent detection performance, deriving from its solid state (i.e. no magnetron) technology, provides users with an unrivalled, lightweight, radar capability that can detect even small, moving targets in adverse weather conditions.



When the SharpEye  SxV, as part of the SMS, is deployed with Kelvin Hughes’ CxEye  control and integration software, the user is able to gain full situational awareness by combining radar, and camera images. CxEye  can be displayed on a laptop or touchscreen device. Designed for ease of use, CxEye geo-references radar tracks on a selection of mapping tools and combines tracking and track fusion from multiple sensors in a single display, with fast ‘slew to cue’ functionality it creates a recognized situational awareness picture through a ‘detect, recognise, identify and classify’ methodology.
 


Jonathan Field, Director Security Sensors and Systems at Kelvin Hughes commented: “When combined, the superior technology of the SharpEye  SxV radar and CxEye  software, the Single Mast Solution offers customers an unrivalled opportunity to deploy a state-of-the-art surveillance suite both rapidly and cost-effectively. We’re very much looking forward to demonstrating the benefits that the SMS can provide at its European launch at Counter Terror Expo.”
