Airbus Defence and Space will deliver five of its newest SPEXER 2000 Coastal radars to Malaysia in order to monitor coastlines and prevent illicit intrusions. Under the multimillion Euro contract deliveries will be completed in 2016.
SPEXER 2000 Coastal is optimized for the surveillance of coastal areas and maritime infrastructure such as harbours and oil fields. With an instrumented range of 247km, its high doppler and velocity resolution as well as its high sea clutter suppression, it is able to detect and track even very small and slowly moving objects such as swimmers and rubber dinghies, but also fast objects such as speed boats. The command & control system will be provided by Signalis.
