UK manufacturer of electronic-scanning radars and surveillance solutions Blighter Surveillance Systems has appointed the consulting firm JGW Group as its US in-country strategic partner to support the company’s expansion into the US defense and security market. This will build on Blighter’s existing success as a supplier to the US Department of Defense with the delivery of Blighter A400 series radars as part of the AUDS C‑UAS platform for deployment to military and CNI bases over the last three years.
According to a company press release, Blighter will be exploring further opportunities to support the US Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security in the ongoing fight against rapidly developing adversaries. The increasing need for border security, perimeter protection and surveillance systems to address the threat caused by drones, has resulted in record growth for the company with opportunities for expansion into the US market. This builds on the existing expertise of Blighter which has seen them providing advanced border security in high-risk regions for decades, including providing surveillance systems for the South Korean Army to monitor the de-militarised zone (DMZ).
“The demand in the US market for radar surveillance capabilities in defense and critical national infrastructure protection is increasing rapidly and is a key platform for Blighter’s strategic international growth,” said Angus Hone, Blighter Surveillance Systems CEO.
Blighter continues to develop and extend its product range to meet the growing global need for effective technical solutions to counter the malicious use of drones. In Q4 2020, Blighter launched the A800 3D drone detection radar for land, air and sea surveillance.
