Blighter Surveillance Systems (‘Blighter’) the British designer and manufacturer of electronic-scanning radars and surveillance solutions, has been selected to provide a minimum of 25 target acquisition radars for a fleet of Armoured Fighting Vehicles (AFVs).

The initial contract with a major European defence company will last for approximately 3-5 years, with the possibility to extend, and provide a minimum of another 60 radars in the following phase.

“In an increasingly kinetic environment it is essential that armed forces personnel have full situational awareness and tracking capabilities.
