Cambridge Pixel enhances radar tracking software

Cambridge Pixel has enhanced its field-proven SPx radar tracking software with new modeling algorithms to support the detection and tracking of small and weak targets in a range of commercial and military security applications, the company said.

The new model-based tracking extensions allow the operator to create multiple models that match the signature of targets such as a swimmer or crawler, rigid inflatable boat (RIB), jet ski, helicopter, small UAV or a motorbike. The tracker can also be configured to look for specific scenarios, such as targets moving towards a sensitive location or on a specific heading. Importantly, the tracking software allows multiple types of target to be acquired from the same data set.

Cambridge Pixel´s SPx radar tracking software is designed to operate with many different radar types and is already deployed in command and control, maritime navigation, security, airports and vessel traffic applications.

Cambridge Pixel is a developer of sensor processing and display solutions including primary and secondary radar interfacing, processing and display components for military and commercial radar applications. It is a supplier of software-based radar tracking and scan conversion solutions through its modular SPx software, and HPx hardware product range.
