Cambridge Pixel is providing coastal surveillance software to the National Coastwatch Institution's (NCI) Felixstowe station. NCI is a voluntary organisation that provides human observation at numerous sites around the UK coast, looking for anyone in distress at sea.
The combination of SPx Tracking Server and the RadarWatch display application will provide NCI Felixstowe with a significantly enhanced surveillance capability. It will allow the addition of a radar sensor to the existing camera and AIS feeds while, at the same time, bringing all of the information together and presenting it in a more user-friendly, integrated manner. The rationalisation of all available sensor inputs will allow NCI's watchkeepers to concentrate on visual protection.
As part of the NCI Felixstowe installation we have also provided a Simrad 4G radar to the charity, where it will actively be helping to protect lives.
