The SPx target tracking software is configurable for detection and tracking of aircraft, trains, vehicles, and personnel. The software receives video from the Navtech radars, and delivers output from the tracker into a custom control application across a network interface. Tracker output includes track reports with filtered position, speed, heading, and statistics.
