Blighter Surveillance Systems has appointed S-Connect as its South Korean partner for the manufacture of electronically-scanned (e-scan) radars in country.

The Republic of Korea Army is an operator of Blighter's radars, operating some 100 units in the demilitarised zone (DMZ) on the Korean peninsula.
