Robust reliable sensors for industrial automation
Navtech Radar’s industrial grade sensors provide high-resolution imaging in all weather, lighting and environmental conditions, overcoming some of the fundamental limitations of laser and camera solutions.
Engineered to withstand extreme vibration, temperatures and environments, they are the most reliable sensors for use in mission-critical automation applications, providing critical sensor data when it’s needed most.
Navtech has 20 years’ experience designing sensors for the most demanding environments, such as mines, ports and industrial plants. The 360° scanning sensors have a narrow beam width and fast update rate, providing unambiguous, high dynamic range data. They are compact, light-weight, and fully ruggedized, specifically developed for automation applications in harsh environments – from measurement and ranging, to anti-collision and obstacle detection.
The sensor can be easily integrated into any software package, requiring only a power and ethernet connection to transfer raw image data (power spectrum and azimuth) that can be interpreted to suit the user’s needs.

SafeGuard is a stand-alone, smart sensing solution for challenging obstacle detection and collision avoidance applications. SafeGuard combines the high-resolution CIR sensor with embedded radar processing and control software, all accessible over a simple web interface. Radar has long been recognised as the best sensor technology to deliver reliable performance in adverse environmental conditions. Largely unaffected by dust, dirt, poor weather, vibration, and bright sunlight, radar is an ideal choice for outdoor industrial applications where such conditions are common.

The CIR sensor is a fully ruggedised compact scanning radar that has been specifically designed for use in challenging industrial environments. With 360° field of view, long range and high range resolution, the sensor is ideal for demanding industrial applications. The sensor can be mounted at any angle for optimum performance. It can be used to provide accurate range and bearing information, enabling applications such as collision avoidance and volumetric measurement.
The CAS sensor is a fully ruggedized, miniaturised edition of the CIR sensor. Its robust design is ideal for applications on vehicles and mobile industrial equipment.
The sensor provides high resolution imagery, with a narrow beamwidth and high update rate. With its 360° scanning ability, a single sensor covers the entire surrounding area of a vehicle. By producing high accuracy measurement data, the CAS provides critical sensing, localisation and navigation in all weather and environmental conditions, where the performance of other technology is limited.
