Kelvin Hughes developer manufacturer of maritime navigation, surveillance and security radar systems, announced it has secured Type Approval in China for its SBS-700-2 radar system.

The SBS-700 is a shore-based radar system specifically developed for port, harbor and river traffic operators as well as government agencies responsible for the protection of the coastal and littoral zones.

Aimed at the basic and standard capability type as outlined in IALA V-128, the SBS-700-2 features the latest Kelvin Hughes magnetron technology, incorporating a high dynamic range, a low noise front end, and an FET modulator to improve range discrimination.

Suitable for deployment as a single radar site, the SBS-700-2 can also be integrated into a larger radar sensor network using industry standard protocols.

Adrian Pilbeam of Kelvin Hughes, said, "Securing this Type Approval for the SBS-700-2 will allow us to respond to China's rapidly expanding VTS and coastal surveillance market."
