Cambridge Pixel Announces Technology Transfer Agreement with Samsung Thales in Korea
Cambridge Pixel (www.cambridgepixel.com), a developer of sensor processing and display solutions, has announced a technology transfer agreement with Samsung Thales Corporation (STC), Korea’s leading defence company, to supply its radar processing and display technology.
STC’s engineers in Gumi-City, South Korea, wanted to work with a partner that would provide a cost-effective, flexible radar processing and display solution to aid the development of STC’s own advanced technology solutions for Korean naval programs.
As part of this new agreement, Cambridge Pixel will provide core technology products, technology transfer and training to allow STC to develop, customise and support its own radar solutions. Products from Cambridge Pixel’s SPx product family, including its radar scan converter, radar video simulator and network video distribution, are being supplied to STC, along with substantial training and assistance to permit localisation of the solution.
For Samsung Thales Corporation, Mr. Yong Ook Lee, Naval/System R&D Centre Leader, said: “STC has significant project experience developing radar solutions for our naval customers. For new programmes, we wanted to work with a long term partner that is able to provide us with a cost-effective, flexible solution as well as the expertise, support and training required to enhance our naval combat management system."
Commenting on the new partnership, David Johnson, managing director, Cambridge Pixel, said: “This is a further boost to our growing export business and we are delighted to be supplying our radar processing technology to Samsung Thales in Korea as part of this technology transfer agreement.
“Our advanced software solution and flexible product architecture is appealing to systems integrators as it makes technology refresh inherently easy as our radar software solution is very cleanly decoupled from the hardware computing platform, thereby avoiding reliance on a specific proprietary solution.
“We have already started to work alongside STC’s engineers to provide modules of expertise that can be built into new generation radar server and console solutions. We believe the teaming will give STC enhanced capabilities to develop and maintain solutions using Cambridge Pixel’s engineering team as an extension of its own resources.”
Cambridge Pixel’s world-leading SPx suite of software libraries and applications provide highly flexible, ready-to-run software products for radar visualisation, radar video distribution, plot extraction and target tracking. Cambridge Pixel’s engineering team has decades of experience of developing complex radar processing and display systems for naval, air traffic control, vessel traffic, security and airborne radar applications.
