Key Features

A maritime security and coastal surveillance solution.

Supports Multiple Radars and Cameras

RadarWatch takes all of its inputs from network sources and supports a number of standard data formats, making it ideal for use in distributed architectures.

Display on Multiple Screens

Designed to support multiple screens, RadarWatch allows the operator to drag, resize and reposition multiple display windows at will. The layout and graphics settings for all RadarWatch windows may be saved and restored with ease. Featuring Cambridge Pixel's trusted scan conversion technology, RadarWatch provides smooth, reliable and accurate display of radar video, along with symbology, on top of tiled maps or S57 electronic charts.

Comprehensive User-defined Alarm Conditions

Comprehensive alarm logic is built into RadarWatch, allowing alarms to be generated under user-defined conditions, such as targets entering defined areas and travelling over a set speed.

Graphical support is provided for defining alarm areas, alarm gates (uni- or bi-directional) and reference points. RadarWatch also performs CPA/TCPA calculations between target pairs and between targets and reference points. Alarms may be visual and audible, and network messages may also be generated and sent out to external equipment.

Camera Control and Display with Radar/AIS/ADS-B Data

Control and view camera video with added target information from radar, AIS and ADS-B data. This provides operators the best possible situational awareness and enables features such as slew-to-cue.

If a vessel's IMO or MMSI number is available RadarWatch can perform a lookup of vessel image, either from an Internet service-based or local database, providing fast visual verification of a vessel's true identity. Camera snapshots may also be taken and stored to supplement the information held for a vessel.

Integrated Solutions

RadarWatch accepts open data formats, such as ASTERIX and NMEA-0183, for its inputs and may therefore be may be used as a ready-made slave display for these data types. However, it is also designed to work closely with other Cambridge Pixel applications, including: SPx Server, SPx Fusion Server, Camera Manager and RDR.

This modular approach makes it easy for systems integrators to design and build a complete solution, selecting the functional modules necessary to meet the requirements of the particular project. For example, if target tracking from radar video is required, simply include SPx Server. If the data sources include radar tracks from multiple radars and/or AIS, use SPx Fusion Server to combine them. If the project requires recording and replay of the data source, add RDR.
