For airport ground movement applications, the availability of high resolution radar imagery permits controllers to monitor and control aircraft and vehicle movements. The SPx radar scan converter provides exceptional image clarity and resolution allowing the smallest of details to be displayed. The scan converter permits the radar imagery to be easily integrated into a graphics display, allowing legacy hardware scan converters to be replaced by modern, cost-effective software solutions with minimal impact on existing software. Radar video can easily be distributed over standard Ethernet cables or fibre, allowing a single radar server to support multiple independent display positions.
For air defense applications, Cambridge Pixel's SPx Server software provides a configurable, high performance multi-hypothesis tracker. Primary radar may be received over a network or through the HPx-200 card with SPx Server generating track reports in Asterix format. These primary tracks may be combined with secondary surveillance radar (SSR) data, such as IFF or ADS-B, using Cambridge Pixel's SPx Fusion software module. The SPx software architecture provides system integrators with a flexible solution which allows individual capabilities to be included only as needed.
