Blighter Surveillance Systems Unveils New Multi-language BlighterView Software at IDEX 2013

Blighter Surveillance Systems (www.blighter.com), an electronic-scanning radar and sensor solution provider, has today unveiled a new multi-language version of its BlighterView sensor and control software at the International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX), in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

The BlighterView software provides a wealth of new features: multiple language support - including Arabic, Korean, English and other European languages; a new modular architecture to improve integration of Blighter solutions into command and control systems; ESRI geographic information system (GIS) mapping; and support for third party sensors such as cameras and thermal imaging systems.

Mark Radford, CEO of Blighter Surveillance Systems, said: “This feature rich multi-language version of our BlighterView software will provide the additional capabilities we need to support large scale deployment of radars, cameras, thermal imagers and other sensor systems into global defence and security applications, such as border and perimeter security and infrastructure protection.

“Several customers, including a South Korean integrator, approached us about providing local language support so we developed the capability to customise the BlighterView application to use local language and terms that are familiar to systems operators. This is a key development given our particular focus on Middle Eastern and North African markets.”

At the heart of BlighterView is the control panel which allows access to the wealth of advanced settings provided by the company’s electronic scanning ground surveillance Blighter radar. The control panel is a key component necessary for a system integrator to design the Blighter radar into their system.

John Oyler, software manager for Blighter Surveillance Systems, said: "We have expanded the Blighter software team to enable us to develop new capabilities within the BlighterView software. The new architecture provides greater flexibility for supporting individual users and simplifies the integration of the Blighter radar into existing command and control systems as we now provide customers with a toolkit of modules to ease the integration process.

“Furthermore, the addition of advanced mapping based around the ESRI GIS system enables customers to load existing open source maps and satellite images, or their own country maps, into the application if required. The BlighterView software then overlays terrain data, radar, camera images and other sensor information onto the available map to provide a multi sensor display capability.”

BlighterView is available as a stand-alone Microsoft Windows application and is also supported by a Software Developer’s Kit (SDK) enabling system integrators to simply plug the required elements of the BlighterView software into their own command and control systems.

Blighter Surveillance Systems provides an integrated multi-sensor package to systems integrators comprising the Blighter electronic-scanning radars, cameras, thermal imagers, trackers and software solutions.

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 robust and persistent surveillance capability and an unmatched combination of high reliability, accuracy and performance with a low cost of ownership.

Blighter Surveillance Systems will be exhibiting at The International Defence Exhibition and Conference, IDEX, at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), Abu Dhabi, UAE, from 17-21 February 2013 (Stand Number: 05-C11 - located in the UK Pavilion in Hall 5).

Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...
