Lockheed Martin has selected Cambridge Pixel’s radar display and target tracking software modules for integration into the company's naval vigilance radar system.
The navigation radar system is part of the Navigation Radar Programme (NRP), a £44m Royal Navy Upgrade awarded to Lockheed Martin by the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) in January 2016.
This navigation radar system, along with Kelvin Hughes SharpEye radar transceivers, will be fitted to more than 60 Royal Navy Platforms over the next five years, the company announced Tuesday.
“Our technology software modules fit well with Lockheed Martin's vision of developing a navigation radar system that meets the Royal Navy's needs now but that also has a clear route to adding extra functionality in the future."David Johnson, CEO of Cambridge Pixel said.
The radar scan conversion module receives radar data from SharpEye radar and creates a radar image for display with underlay and overlay graphics.
The radar tracking module processes the radar data to automatically acquire and track targets, and the radar fusion software combine tracks from multiple radars on the ships with AIS (automatic identification system) transponder data and other sensor data into a single, integrated data source.
To assist Lockheed Martin during the development and test phase of the new navigation radar system, Cambridge Pixel is also supplying radar simulation and recording capabilities from its established SPx product family.
The Radar Data Recorder (RDR) captures raw video from the sensor as ASTERIX CAT-240, along with AIS data and navigation data.
For system testing, prior to connection to the SharpEye radars, the SPx Radar Simulator generates realistic ASTERIX-based data sets comprising primary radar video, tracks, NMEA-0183 navigation data and AIS data sets from programmed scenarios.
