Kelvin Hughes announced on 1 February that it had successfully installed its Sharpeye x-band radar on four boats, which will patrol the Caribbean country’s costal waters to counteract illegal activity.

The radar should enable the craft to remain out of radar detection range, while still being able to track and monitor vessels under investigation. It will also secure safety in bad weather.
