Cassidian has unveiled a new radar designed for surveillance of critical infrastructure.

The Spexer 500, which was introduced during the Milipol exhibition in Paris, is optimized for protection of installations such as military bases, oil fields and power plants.

The radar has an instrumented range of 0.1 to 9 kilometers and an update rate of less than 1.5 seconds for a 120-degree sector.

“Our new radar uses the latest digital beam forming (DBF) technology, which enables the early detection even of single pedestrians in all weather conditions,” said Elmar Compans, head of Cassidian’s Sensors & Electronic Warfare division, in a company announcement. “Spexer 500 gives police or security forces additional reaction time in order to deal with illegal intruders.”
