Kelvin Hughes' BOXER low-power portable anti-jamming surveillance radar
     
The BOXER products have been designed to meet the surveillance demands of a range of clients from military and para-military to law enforcement and private security agencies. BOXER is a man-portable system that can be deployed by two people or mounted in a vehicle or trailer. There is also a fixed installation option, and multiple units can be deployed to provide perimeter surveillance. Although optimised for battlefield operations, Boxer also has applications for border protection and law enforcement.

Boxer uses SharpEye™ X-band solid state technology and incorporates three different pulse-length options. These can be programmed or manually alternated, and frequency diversity options ensure true anti-jamming capability. Each electronically steered phased-array antenna sweeps an arc of 120°, and the antenna can also be rotated to give 360° coverage.
