Navtech Radar nominated for Detektor International Awards 2013
Navtech Radar, the world leading developer and manufacturer of millimetre wave (MMW) radar sensor solutions for outdoor, wide area Security and Surveillance applications, has been nominated for a Detektor International Award 2013 in the Alarm & Detection category.
Launched in January 2013, the new AGS1600 EXTREME radar surveillance solution is specifically developed to cope with the environmental and climatic conditions found in oil & gas exploration and production and is completely integrated with the sophisticated intuitive control software suite, witness. The solution works within an ambient temperature range from -40C to +65C and explosion proof options, as well as solutions entirely powered by solar panels, are also available.
The Detektor Award is an independent prize, and as such, companies cannot nominate their own products. Instead, the nomination is conducted by the editorial board of Detektor International Magazine. This independent selection criterion is the main reason why it has become one of the most prestigious awards in the global security market.
Detektor Awards selects - and judge - products divided into the following three award categories: the Access Control category, the Alarm & Detection category and the CCTV category.
Commenting on nomination, Keith Chapman, Head of Global Sales, Security of Navtech Radar said, "It is a true honour to be nominated for a Detektor International Award. To many people the use of Radar solutions for wide area surveillance purposes is still considered to be an 'emerging technology'.
This is rapidly changing with the increased focus on early warning and prevention. Particularly when it comes to perimeter security for critical infrastructure such as airports, power stations, border protection and data centres, to name but a few. This recognition underlines the fact that Navtech's technology solutions are truly unique and address a specific need in the market. This is a very important award for us and gives recognition for the innovative and highly effective solutions we can offer. As we continue to grow the market for Navtech's products in new geographical markets, this high profile nomination is a phenomenal boost of confidence to the entire staff who are working so hard to secure our continued growth".
The jury consists of members of the editorial board of Detektor from three continents. The overall winner in each awards category will receive the award for "Best Product", the second will receive the "Highly Commended Award" distinction and third place will be presented with the diploma for "Innovative Achievement Award". The awards will be presented at the Security Banquet during SecTech in Stockholm on the evening of October 22nd, 2013.
