The Lithuanian State Border Guard Service (Valstybės sienos apsaugos tarnyba) has selected several variants of the SBS-900 X-band SharpEye long-range radar for remote coastal surveillance. Hensoldt UK’s coastal-based radars are specifically designed to meet the stringent operational requirements of port and river traffic operators in addition to government agencies responsible for the protection of coastal and offshore areas. In cooperation with the local integrator Telekonta, the mast mounted SBS-900s were selected to meet the requirements of the Lithuanian Border Guard for detecting small targets at long range. SharpEye does not require an air-conditioned housing for operation, so system integration and infrastructure costs are low.
