Key Features

Converts Radar Video

Converts radar video into sequences of scan-converted images, which it can then serve to web browsers for display with maps, tracks and related symbology. A typical system architecture will have SPx Server at a radar site to receive and pre-process the radar video, then use SPx Radar Web Server to scan-convert and serve images to any number of connected browsers.

Cloud-based Server Support

In a cloud-based solution, a lightweight radar server (or HPx-346 unit) will receive the radar video and distribute it to a cloud-based server running SPx Radar Web Server. The client browsers then simply make HTTP requests for specific areas of radar data.

Handles Track Data

SPx Radar Web Server also handles track data (primary radar tracks, fused tracks, AIS, ADS-B), providing these in an extended GeoJSON format to connected browsers for rendering.

Windows and Linux Versions

SPx Radar Web Server is available for both Windows and Linux.

Client Support

SPx Radar Web Server is licenced according to the maximum number of clients it will support.  Standard options are available for up to 100 clients but more can be supported if the host has sufficient resources.  Alternatively, a distributed approach is possible, with multiple servers sharing the radar data and serving fewer clients. 


SPx Radar Web Server is configured at start up via configuration file and is then fully controllable at runtime via a client-side Javascript API.  The API allows client-side display applications to be built easily upon web-based mapping tools such as Google Maps and Bing Maps.  A built-in web client display is also provided.  

Each client selects its chosen view through query strings in the URL when making requests to the server. Furthermore, any other runtime parameter may also be controlled through the RESTful API.  This provides client apps with an extremely straightforward method of controlling the radar view and general operation of SPx Radar Web Server, without any reliance on Javascript.
