In order to achieve IMO type approval, a radar system must demonstrate that it can perform accurate target tracking on a series of prescribed scenarios. These scenarios and the required tracking performance are defined in IEC document 62388. Although in theory these scenarios could be created in real-life, in practice this would be expensive and time-consuming. Therefore simulation is the only practical method of testing against them.
SPx Radar Simulator may be used to pre-qualify a system before accreditation and Cambridge Pixel has implemented all of the required target scenarios. Furthermore the SPx Tracking Server is tested against these scenarios automatically, every night, to ensure that our tracker is capable of IMO compliance.
