CAMBRIDGE, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cambridge Pixel (www.cambridgepixel.com), a developer of primary radar, acquisition, processing and display solutions, has secured a contract to supply its SPx radar scan conversion solutions to BAE Systems Mission Systems, for deployment on the British Royal Navy’s Type 45 destroyers and the Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers. The contract is valued at around £600,000.

“We are pleased to be bringing advanced software capabilities to BAE Systems for this application. Our SPx software provides a flexible and expandable solution that can meet the complex requirements of the new generation naval platforms.”

BAE Systems Mission Systems in New Malden and Portsmouth, England has integrated Cambridge Pixel’s software-based SPx radar scan converter into its command and control client software. This enables radar video to be received from multiple radars on-board the ships into a server application and then distributed over Ethernet networks to command and control displays across the ship.

The server application is built from Cambridge Pixel’s HPx-100 radar acquisition cards and SPx software modules for compression and network interfacing. The new client-side software radar video rendering provides enhanced flexibility and capability at reduced cost over previous generation hardware rendering solutions.

Brian Page, Chief Technical Authority for the CMS-1 Combat Management System product at BAE Systems Mission Systems, said: “We chose Cambridge Pixel’s solution for these programmes because of their advanced software solution and flexible product architecture. Our software engineers were able to work with Cambridge Pixel to integrate the SPx capabilities into our server and client software. Cambridge Pixel’s expertise in radar display systems has been a great asset to our programme.”

David Johnson, managing director of Cambridge Pixel, said: “We are pleased to be bringing advanced software capabilities to BAE Systems for this application. Our SPx software provides a flexible and expandable solution that can meet the complex requirements of the new generation naval platforms.”

Cambridge Pixel’s world leading SPx suite of software libraries and applications provide systems integrators with highly flexible, ready-to-run software products for radar visualisation, radar video distribution, plot extraction and target tracking.
