Further developments of the radar capability will be revealed at the show that makes detecting and tracking even the smallest drones a reality. Exact details will be kept under wraps until the show being held between the 12th and 15th September.

    At DSEI, Kelvin Hughes will also unveil the new ECDIS which meets the International Hydrographic Office (IHO) latest standards and is available for naval platforms wishing to take advantage of commercial navigation equipment but still seeking the benefits of the tactical capabilities the Kelvin Hughes navigation and situational awareness software brings. Based around the multifunction capability and the networked bridge, Kelvin Hughes’ latest range of bridge equipment allows multi-station viewing and operation of radar, conning and ECDIS.
