Trusted to perform

Delivering sensors since 1999, our industrial-grade, high-performance radars are consistently reliable, and designed to be maintenance free for 10 years.

We rigorously test the performance of every radar to withstand all weather, light and environmental conditions, including rain, fog, dust or dirt and complete darkness. It means no costly disruption to your operations. Sensors you can rely on.

"We are delighted to be working so closely with Navtech Radar - it speaks to the strength of the tech industry in Oxfordshire and the UK. The partnering will accelerate the art of the possible in what machines can do with radar." 

Professor Paul Newman, Director Oxford Robotics Institute (ORI), a world-leading robotics research group
