Remote border surveillance

Blighter Explorer is a cost effective solution to border surveillance where a relatively small number of vehicles and border patrol staff can move rapidly to border areas that are being breached. The rapid deployment and pack up of the equipment allows border patrol staff to react quickly to changes in intruder flow.

Temporary/Portable  protection

Mobile security patrols often need to provide over-night surveillance to protect themselves when resting. The Blighter Explorer system can be rapidly deployed the moment the patrol stops. The Blighter radar can be remotely deployed either to look over the camp from a distance or to persistently monitor specific high-risk security areas.


The BlighterView HMI 2 includes operator defined 'Alert' and 'Exclusion' zones. An intruder entering the Alert zone will be detected by the Blighter Radar, trigger an alarm on the BlighterView HMI 2 and automatically cue the camera in the direction of the intruder. This automatic operation allows the operator to conduct other activities or rest until alerted by the Blighter Explorer system.
