Orem, UT (PRWEB) September 21, 2011
SpotterRF is unveiling the M600C, the smallest wide area surveillance radar, at the Modern Day Marine Expo in Quantico Virginia. The radar provides 148 acres of all-weather coverage while weighing only 3.5 lbs and consuming a mere 10 watts of power. Until recently, radar surveillance has only been available in large force protection systems such as the BETSS-C or G-BOSS. Now, with the M600C deployed in a remote combat outpost or firebase, warfighters will have the advantage of detecting threats out to 1km away, night or day, and in all types of weather.
To increase usability of the lightweight radar, SpotterRF is also releasing a mobile browser interface which makes it possible to view tracks on handheld devices. In the mobile interface, users can see range, angle, and MGRS coordinates of approaching tracks. Users can also set alert or ignore zones and toggle between night and day viewing modes. “Our goal is to lighten the load that the individual warfighter has to carry, while also making the radar as easy and intuitive as possible. This way Soldiers and Marines can be rapidly trained in the field,” said Brock Jospehson, Business Development Manger for SpotterRF.
The Spotter M600C and the mobile interface will be unveiled at the opening of the Expo on September 27th in booth #16 of the small business pavilion. After the unveiling, both will be available for hands-on demonstrations through the end of the exhibit.
SpotterRF is located in Orem, Utah, and is the industry leader in a new class of radar called Compact Surveillance Radar (CSR). To find out more please visit http://www.spotterrf.com.
