The Navtech AdvanceGuard radar system provides detailed information on movements within a protected area. The HDR300 system is designed for large areas and has a range of 3km. Prior to this design, Navtech had been manufacturing radar systems from solid billets of polypropylene, which was wasteful and expensive. Crucible introduced the use of vacuum formed domes and moulded bases to reduce costs and improve lead times and quality.
- Technical investigation of suitable manufacturing techniques compatible with radar technology.
- Concept design for new systems using innovative manufacturing methods.
- Technical development of a range of designs.
- Preparation of production data for prototyping and manufacture.
