RANGER innovates by combining novel and ground-breaking Radar technologies with innovative supporting technological solutions for early warning, in order to deliver a surveillance platform that will offer tracking as well as detection, recognition, and identification of vessels far beyond existing radar systems. Furthermore, the RANGER system will seamlessly fit and contribute to the Common Information Sharing Environment (CISE) framework through the provision of on-demand CISE compliant services, in accordance with EUROSUR specifications.

RANGER’s most important contribution will be to significantly progress on the accuracy and long distance detection, identification and recognition capacity for small boats. Thus, drastically improving the response and intervention capacity of European SaR services and personnel, and severely reducing the expected number of casualties in the Mediterranean basin, whether it is the Greek archipelago, the southern Atlantic or the open seas of Italy and France.

MilGPS: an answer to Navies modernization need

DIGINEXT’s MilGPS receptor is the first ever 100% European P(Y) SAASM receiver, fully compliant with US guidelines, for ship applications. The system is deployed within the Royal Netherland Navy and French Navy and a framework agreement was also signed with the NAMSA allowing NATO member countries to get the MilGPS in an easier way. Today, more than 140 system is equipping worldwide Navies’ ships or submarines.


Since 2015, Stradivarius HFSW radar is installed and operational in French Mediterranean coast for the surveillance of the Gulf of Lyon. Stradivarius is the only Over-the-Horizon radar able to conduct in depth surveillance of maritime approaches and exclusive economic zones 24/7. It can detect small vessels out to 200 nautical miles from the coastline, no matter what the climate conditions are. Its design reduces the environmental impact of HF radars with standard surface waves: reducing the number of sites, integrating the sites into the environment and reducing electromagnetic radiation.
