Cambridge Pixel has supplied Hanwha Thales Corporation with radar trackers to be used at air force bases for the Republic of Korea.
The trackers will enhance the Republic of Korea Air Force's air traffic surveillance capabilities by including primary radar display, tracking, and fusing primary tracks with IFF, identification friend or foe, data. Hanwha Thales Corporation Senior Engineer Jaehun Kim called the radar trackers "flexible" for their ability to accommodate different sensors.
"The company's engineers were extremely responsive throughout all stages of this project, and when changes to the radar and IFF interfaces required additional development, this was undertaken in a timely manner," Kim said. "Cambridge Pixel's software was straightforward to integrate within our own display application code and the upgrades were successfully delivered to the Air Force on time."
Following integration of trackers and sensors, Cambridge Pixel's SPx Tracking Server provides automatic track initiation and multi-hypothesis tracking from the primary radar sensor. The tracker accepts the video data, and then processes it to identify targets. The Republic of Korea Air Force will be able to configure the system to identify target-like shapes.
"This is yet another example of a project where Cambridge Pixel's software modules have been combined into a complete solution, working with existing radar hardware and allowing the customer to retain full control over the end-user display application," Cambridge Pixel CEO Dave Johnson said in a statement.
