Cambridge expands air surveillance product portfolio with addition of Pixel ADS-B Aircraft Data Viewer

Cambridge Pixel, has announced it has added ASD-View to its air surveillance product portfolio to meet the growing demand for the visualisation of ADS-B aircraft data in maritime and surveillance applications, the company said.

ASD-View is a PC-based Windows application for ADS-B receivers that displays data from co-operating targets such as commercial aircraft, helicopters, light aircraft, and drones. ASD-View was developed to meet increasing demand for an ADS-B viewer from oil & gas platforms, port and harbour authorities and other maritime and surveillance applications.

ASD-View displays the ADS-B tracks as symbols overlaid on a map. The software supports land-based installations and also maritime or offshore platforms where positional information for the platform is provided by an NMEA 0183 stream. The underlying software components for ADS-B decoding and visualisation are also available for software developers in Cambridge Pixel´s SPx development software.

Cambridge Pixel, a developer of radar display, tracking and recording sub-systems, uses radar technology in naval, air traffic control, vessel traffic, commercial shipping, security, surveillance and airborne radar applications. Its systems have been implemented in mission-critical applications with companies such as BAE Systems, Frontier Electronic Systems, Blighter Surveillance Systems, Exelis, Hanwha Systems, Kelvin Hughes, Lockheed Martin, Navtech Radar, Raytheon, Saab Sensis, Royal Thai Air Force, Sofresud and Tellumat.
