British Prime Minister Visits Kelvin Hughes


Maritime navigation, situational awareness and security radar systems company Kelvin Hughes last Thursday welcomed the Prime Minister Theresa May, to its Enfield head office, design and manufacturing facility.
During an election campaign visit in North London, the Prime Minister was accompanied on a full tour of the Kelvin Hughes facility with the senior management team where she was able to see stealth design pulse Doppler radars in the final stages of assembly.
The Prime Minister discussed the latest naval navigation radar technology and the production capabilities of the company with manufacturing manager Matthew O'Sullivan, and also received a short demonstration of the drone detection system, SMS-D.
The Prime Minister was also briefed on some significant export opportunities and the capabilities of the radar to see small targets, such as submarine periscopes, at longer ranges than conventional radars and the ability of the systems to enhance border security, both on land and at sea.
