Posted 24 April 2017 · Add Comment

Last Thursday Kelvin Hughes welcomed the Prime Minister Theresa May, to its Enfield Head Office, design and manufacturing facility.



During an election campaign visit in North London, the Prime Minister was accompanied on a full tour of the Kelvin Hughes facility with the Senior Management Team where she was able to see stealth design pulse Doppler radars in the final stages of assembly.

The Prime Minister discussed the latest naval navigation radar technology and the production capabilities of the Company with Manufacturing Manager Matthew O’Sullivan, and also received a short demonstration of the drone detection system, SMS-D.



The Prime Minister was also briefed on some significant export opportunities and the capabilities of the radar to see small targets, such as submarine periscopes, at longer ranges than conventional radars and the ability of the systems to enhance border security, both on land and at sea. 

Kelvin Hughes is an innovator for radar sensors and systems, with an unprecedented list of technology firsts - from the first type approved radar in 1948 to the world’s first commercially available multi-purpose solid state radar. This year Kelvin Hughes is celebrating 70 years of type approved maritime radar.

The Kelvin Hughes SharpEye radar is sold into a diverse range of international markets and applications from naval and commercial maritime navigation, port Vessel Traffic Services (VTS), coastal surveillance to ground surveillance, drone detection and marine security applications.
