The move is designed to strengthen Blighter's foothold in the region

and bolster sales into commercial airports and the homeland security

market. Liteye has already sold combined Blighter radar and Aquila PTZ

(pan, tilt, zoom) thermal imaging surveillance systems into a number

of strategic sites in North America, including Centennial Airport in

Colorado, USA.

Under the terms of the agreement, Liteye will act as a sales, support

and service centre for the complete range of Blighter ground

surveillance radars including the new Blighter Revolution 360 radar,

the long-range Blighter B400 series radars, the vehicle-mobile

Blighter B303 radars and the man-portable Blighter B202 Mk 2 radars.

The agreement will also include local manufacture and assembly of


Mark Radford, CEO of Blighter Surveillance Systems, said: "We are

delighted to be working in partnership with Liteye Systems in North

America to meet the growing demand for integrated e-scan radar and

thermal camera solutions. We believe the combination of our low cost

Blighter e-scan ground surveillance radar with Liteye's rugged, low

profile, three camera system is a compelling solution for many

security applications, in particular for commercial airports and the

homeland security market."

Blighter radars combine patented solid-state Passive Electronic

Scanning Array (PESA) technology with advanced Frequency Modulated

Continuous Wave (FMCW) and Doppler processing to provide a maintenance

free 24-hour all-weather surveillance capability.

Tom Scott, president of Liteye Systems, said: "We are excited to be

representing and supporting Blighter Surveillance Systems in North

America. Blighter's the only e-scan radar to offer coactive FMCW

Doppler fast-scan capability, and this gives it the edge over other

e-scan radars in heavily cluttered environments such as those found in

commercial airports."

He added, "Teamed with our Aquila thermal camera platforms Liteye can

now offer unparalleled surveillance performance, not only creating

superior security for a facility or location, but also helping to

enhance other areas of operations, such as wildlife management."

Blighter Surveillance Systems (stand F11) and Liteye Systems (stand

E35) will be exhibiting at Security & Policing

(www.securityandpolicing.co.uk), the UK's premier security and law

enforcement event. This Home Office event takes place at FIVE,

Farnborough, Hampshire, UK, from 11-13 March 2014.
