Cambridge Pixel to supply radar trackers to CAACSRI

Cambridge Pixel is to supply radar trackers, through local agent Aeroer, to the Second Institute of Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAACSRI) for integration with their modern airport surface movement systems.

CAACSRI’s airport surface movement systems are currently being installed for upgrade and expansion projects in airports across south-west China, including at Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport, a major hub for the region. Cambridge Pixel’s SPx radar tracking software will provide enhanced target detection at the airports.

The software is fully parameterised, highly configurable and supports multi-hypothesis and multi-model tracking to improve tracking efficiency and reduce nuisance alarms. The tracker is designed to operate with many different radar types including those from Raytheon, Kelvin Hughes, Blighter Surveillance Systems, Saab Sensis, Furuno, JRC, Koden, Navtech Radar, Sperry and Terma.

David Johnson, CEO, Cambridge Pixel, said: “Our sophisticated radar tracker enhances target detection by processing the video data to identify genuine targets from clutter and thereby provide radar operators and air traffic controllers with confidence and improved situational awareness.

“Furthermore, we have deliberately designed our software ‘modules of expertise’ as discreet yet feature-rich components that are easy to integrate into any radar based surveillance solution. This is attractive in many markets, such as China, where one or more components can be adopted by the local solution provider as part of an in-country capability.”
