SHARPEYE™ FOR THE EAST GREENLAND ICE-CORE PROJECT

Bo Vinther (Associate Professor at the Niels Bohr Institute at University of Copenhagen, and Field Leader at EGRIP) said:
“The SharpEye™ SxV system at EGRIP is configured to transmit alarms to a portable device. This combination gives an additional layer of safety in the EGRIP camp, without dedicating personnel to monitor a radar screen. Crucially camp is promptly informed of personnel unexpectedly leaving the vicinity of camp in poor visibility. This enables the Field Leader to launch SAR in a timely manner, and use radar guidance directing the SAR effort to personnel in need. Furthermore, camp will have warning in the rare case of a polar bear encounter”.

As the radar information is recorded, if someone becomes lost or missing especially in low visibility conditions, even if they are not moving, the last known position can be identified quickly and easily and the GPS location information can be provided or a search party can be guided in. Tests conducted at EGRIP enabled chocolate bars to be located by a search team after these where placed by another person 2.1 kilometres away.

Mark Bown Group Marketing Manager at Kelvin Hughes said:
“This performance is testament to the unique combination of Doppler processing, pulse compression and Moving Target Detection (MTD) techniques employed by the SharpEye™ system that provides the ability to detect small or low Radar Cross Section (RCS) targets in severe weather conditions at longer ranges than other similar approaches to radar design”.

The radar is planned to be used every field season between April/May to August for the next four years.
