Cambridge Pixel Tracking & Display Solutions

Cambridge Pixel is a specialised, engineering-oriented business focussing on the acquisition, processing and display of primary radar video and related sensors. We are based in the UK and we operate world-wide.

Company History and Customers

Cambridge Pixel was founded in 2007 by Dr David Johnson to bring modern COTS computing power to radar processing and display requirements that previously required dedicated hardware.

Growing each year, ISO9001 quality certification was first awarded by BSI in 2009 and increasing export success led to winning the 2015 Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade.  The 10th anniversary in 2017 brought expansion into larger premises and continued growth of the team.

The company remains independent and keeps a core technical focus with 80% of the personnel having engineering backgrounds, including all the sales team.  The directors have an average of over 25 years experience of radar systems each, with many of the employees matching or even exceeding that.  The philosophy is to deliver quality products and services with first-class engineering support.

Today it is a supplier to many of the world’s largest system integrators and radar suppliers, still headquartered in Cambridge, UK but exporting to 50+ countries around the world.

Radar Display Solutions

Our display expertise embraces Windows and X11. We can deliver radar display solutions on low-end laptop computers through to multi-processor client-server configurations where processing and display are separated across a network. Uniquely, we have an understanding of radar concepts from signal acquisition through to multi-layered display and we can deliver an end-to-end solution - from sensor to display.

Our business focus is principally to supply to systems integrators. We offer products as software components that you can incorporate into your own application software, or as black-box sub-systems if you just need a solution. Our software is designed for ease-of-integration.

Cambridge Pixel is committed to open systems and open standards. Our software is based on industry-standard operating systems, graphics libraries and network protocols. We have introduced a new open-standard for radar compression and distribution and are committed to delivering solutions for Open Architecture compliance for the US Navy.

Our business philosophy is to deliver a quality product and service and provide first-class engineering support. Here is what some of our customers have said:
