CAMBRIDGE, England, 28 Nov. 2016. Cambridge Pixel in Cambridge, England is introducing software modelling algorithms to support the radar detection and tracking of small targets in naval, air traffic control, vessel traffic, commercial shipping, security, surveillance and airborne radar applications.

The model-based tracking extensions enable the operator to create several models that match the signature of likely small and weak targets such as a swimmer or crawler, rigid inflatable boat, jet ski, helicopter, small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or a motorcycle.

Users also can configure the tracker to look for scenarios like targets moving towards a sensitive location or on a specific heading. The tracking software enables users to acquire several types of targets from the same data set.

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

The software receives radar video as either radar signals through an acquisition card. Radar processes the video to attenuate noise and clutter, extracts target-like detections as plots, and then correlates the plots to identify targets for automatic acquisition.

Cambridge Pixel's SPx radar tracker provides target track identification, heading and speed. It is parameterized, configurable and supports multi-hypothesis tracking to improve tracking efficiency and reduce nuisance alarms.

Cambridge Pixel's SPx radar tracking software is part of the company's SPx suite of software libraries and applications for radar scan conversion, visualization, radar video distribution, target tracking, sensor fusion, plot extraction, and clutter processing.
