Key Features

Air Situation Display software

Interfaces to Multiple ASTERIX Format Data Inputs

ASD-100 can interface to a number of different ASTERIX data inputs, including: radar video (CAT-240), plot/track reports (CAT-48), ADS-B (CAT-21), and safety alert messages (CAT-4).

Clear PPI Display with Maps and Charts

All data is presented on a large, clear PPI display, overlaid on top of user-selectable maps.

The field-proven scan converter provides smooth, flexible and accurate radar video display for up to four streams (e.g. raw/background, processed, MTI and secondary). Four track receiving channels allow primary, secondary and fused/combined tracks to be received and displayed simultaneously.

Aeronautical charts can be automatically downloaded on demand and cached locally.  Chart data includes visual flight rules (VFR) and low/high altitude route charts, which are updated every 28 days. 

Intuitive Controls with Touch Screen Support

The user interface has been designed to support modern touchscreen displays, using large accessible buttons and common view controls, such as pinch-to-zoom and slide-to-pan.

Intercept vectors can be calculated and displayed, rulers can be drawn between reference points and targets, and individual tracks can be designated through fast, easy-to-use controls.

Configurable soft buttons allow the user interface to be customised to provide shortcuts or add controls for external systems.

Safety Alerts and Track Filtering

Safety alerts such as Short Term Conflict Alerts (STCA), Area Proximity Warnings (APW) and Minimum Safe Altitude Warnings (MSAW) can be received in ASTERIX CAT-4 format (eg. from SPx SafetyNet Server). A visual warning is displayed as well as a graphical representation of the conflicts while they persist.

Track filtering allows specific targets to be displayed, based on their speed and altitude, or by user-defined areas. Tracks that are providing a cooperative transponder response can be hidden to display only unverified threats.

Flight Plan Support

Create, edit and save flight plans into an internal database and match against current aircraft tracks, using their callsign or Mode 3/A code. A matched flight plan is deemed to be active and the label of the corresponding track may reflect this.

Extra Info

Integrates with SPx Software for Expanded Capabilities

SPx Server can provide ASD-100 with radar video and track reports.  It also supports tracking from IFF video, including extraction of the encoded SSR (IFF) information.

SPx Fusion Server can provide ASD-100 with a fused stream of data from many radars and sensors.

SPx SafetyNet Server can provide ASD-100 with CAT-4 alerts.

TEWA (Threat Evaulation and Weapon Assignment) can expand the capabilities of ASD-100 into a capable air defence system.


Comprehensive upgrade for legacy air defence processing and display systems

By combining ASD-100 with other Cambridge Pixel solutions, Air Defence Systems can be upgraded predominantly using software, making them cost-effective and future-proof. Existing (and expensive) front-end radar hardware can be retained. Support for standard ASTERIX data provides compatibility with other systems using these formats.

Source code licencing is also available, allowing developers to extend, localise and ensure long term support.

Real-World Application

Becker-aero selected ASD-100 as the monitoring display for a project making flying safer across a number of sites in Asia. ASD-100 was provided to receive fused reports (via SPx Fusion Server) from Becker-aero’s ADS-B receivers, and overlay them in graphical format onto dynamic aeronautical charts.
