  • CAMBRIDGE, United Kingdom, November 3, 2021- The new Type 26 vessels are part of a programme known as the Global Combat Ship, that was launched by the UK Ministry of Defence. Their primary role will be to conduct advanced anti-submarine warfare missions while supporting air defence and general operations. Type 26s will be vital ships for security of shipping around the world for many years to come. UK State Defence Minister Baroness Annabel Goldie said: “These new frigates will be equipped with the most advanced capabilities and technologies, enabling the Royal Navy to counter emerging global threats for decades to come.”

    In terms of their surveillance and sensor capabilities, each Type 26 ship  will be fitted with the BAE Type 997 Artisan 3D air and surface surveillance radar, solid state X and S band navigation radars and a long range IFF interrogator, as well as electro-optical and infrared systems.

    Cambridge Pixel will be supplying its latest generation of SPx radar processing and display software to BAE Systems for the visualisation of primary and IFF video onboard the Combat Management System (CMS) of the new ships. Cambridge Pixel’s SPx radar display software will be integrated into the CMS to receive and display primary and IFF video, with options to combine multiple videos from the two navigation radars on the ship, as well as support per-console combination of different radars. This provides a high degree of flexibility to configure each display with just the relevant information for the operational role of the display.

    Cambridge Pixel’s SPx software will also be provided for server-side radar processing and network distribution, delivering encoded radar video into the virtualised client displays. Within each client, radar information can be combined with map and tactical data to form a complete situational awareness picture. Each client is able to combine different radar layers into a desired picture with track overlays, allowing just the essential information to be presented for each situation.

    “The Cambridge Pixel software delivers considerable flexibility in the way radar information can be processed and distributed around the ship.  It supports the Type 26 Combat System architecture, reduces cost compared to legacy designs and, when integrated with the Combat System allows situational awareness to be presented to the command team where and when its needed.” Steve Carter, Combat System Equipment Programme Delivery Director, BAE Systems

    Commenting on the project, Cambridge Pixel’s Managing Director, David Johnson said “We are pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with BAE systems, providing our SPx radar processing software for the new Type 26 ships.” 

    Under the Type 26 programme, roughly 4,000 jobs are expected to be generated across the UK supply chain. Cambridge Pixel are a proud supplier to BAE Systems with an existing and a long-standing working relationship. Cambridge Pixel’s engineers have been working with BAE Systems for over a decade providing them with ongoing support whenever it is needed, almost as an extension of their own team.

    “We are proud to support BAE’s engineers with our expertise in radar display to help build the best possible systems for the Royal Navy. We’ve enjoyed working with them for more than 10 years, including the deployment of our technologies on the Type 45 ships and the Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers...” said Richard Warren, Director of Software at Cambridge Pixel. 

  • CAMBRIDGE, United Kingdom, April 6, 2021 – Cambridge Pixel, a developer of radar display, tracking and recording sub-systems, is supplying its HPx-250 PMC radar interface cards and SPx radar and IFF plot extraction software to the Naval Air Warfare Centre for the United States Navy’s AN/SYY-1 Shipboard Air Traffic Control Processing and Display System.

    The AN/SYY-1 is the US Navy's upgrade to the AN/TPX-42 system used for shipboard air traffic control. The new system will be deployed on all CVN-class aircraft carriers as well as on helicopter landing ships (LHA and LHD-class vessels). Cambridge Pixel’s technology will be used to process radar returns, extract radar and IFF plots and display radar video from the primary and secondary radar video on all the ships.

    Engineers developing the AN/SYY-1 system at the Naval Air Warfare Center – Webster Outlying Field (NAWC WOLF) in Saint Inigoes, Maryland, USA, needed a radar acquisition card and supporting software that provided radar plot extraction, IFF plot extraction, radar distribution and scan conversion. The AN/SYY-1 system uses a multi-sensor tracker to provide the Air Controller with a fused (composite) track comprised from all available sensors.

    David Kenney, electronics engineer, Naval Air Warfare Center's Shipboard Air Traffic Control and Landing Systems, said: "We chose the Cambridge Pixel HPx-250 PMC card because it satisfied our three key requirements in a low powered, small form factor solution. The Cambridge Pixel team has also worked closely with NAWC WOLF personnel during development and responded to requests for unique modifications in an economical and timely manner."

    David Johnson, CEO, Cambridge Pixel, said: "We are delighted to be offering our modular HPx and SPx radar processing components into this technology refresh program. We have incorporated considerable flexibility into the radar interfacing and data processing modules which has allowed us to accommodate the needs of the AN/SYY-1 upgrade."

    Cambridge Pixel's HPx-250 is a PMC-format daughterboard that fits onto a VME processor board. The card receives radar signals, including video, trigger and azimuth, and passes the digitised and processed video to the SPx Server plot extraction software, which runs on the host computer.

    For combined primary and IFF requirements, two HPx-250 cards are deployed on a single VME processor, with one instance of SPx Server software handling IFF decoding and plot extraction, and the other handling primary video plot extraction and video processing.

    For IFF video, mode tags embedded in the video are used to identify the interrogation mode to permit correct decoding of altitude and call sign data. For primary radar video, plots are identified as areas of video passing a target-like acceptance criteria. Plots, along with digitised video, are passed out of SPx Server into downstream track processing and display.

    Cambridge Pixel's HPx-250 card is part of a family of radar acquisition and processing components that provide system integrators with a powerful toolkit to build server and client display systems. A wide variety of signal types and input voltages are supported on the card, allowing connection to a diverse range of commercial and military radar types including those from Furuno, Hensoldt, JRC, Koden, Raytheon, Sperry, Terma, as well as specialist military radars.

    The company's SPx suite of software libraries and applications provides highly flexible, ready-to-run software products or 'modules-of-expertise' for radar scan conversion, visualisation, radar video distribution, target tracking, sensor fusion, plot extraction and clutter processing.

    Cambridge Pixel's radar technology is used in naval, air traffic control, vessel traffic, unmanned systems, Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS), commercial shipping, security, surveillance and airborne radar applications.

  • SPx Radar Web Server - Radar Video in a Browser
    A display solution that uses a standard web browser will automatically support a wide range of display devices from smart phones through to desktop workstations, with no special requirements beyond the support for the browser....

  • This is the perfect solution when information needs to be shared with the widest range of users. For radar display, tablet devices using wi-fi or 4G/5G data links are an attractive option for displays that need to be portable.

    Cambridge Pixel’s SPx Radar Web Server is a radar processing server that 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.

    Each browser has its own unique view of the radar image, effectively having its own dedicated scan converter running in SPx Radar Web Server, allowing an operator to change scale and position independently of other users and to see the radar video at full resolution. 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.

    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.

    Watch this video about how it works, and view the Data Sheet for more detail.
