Radar Modules:

Network or signal interface Many standard radars (Kelvin Hughes, Furuno, Terma, Blighter, Navtech, JRC, Simrad, Raytheon) can be used, either using a network interface (eg ASTERIX CAT-240) or radar signals that can be received by a HPx series radar input card
Radar control Selected radars can be controlled using modules in the library
Processing Radar video may be enhanced for display or to aid automatic track extraction. Processing includes correlation, filtering, LUT, blanking, thresholding, interference suppression, and scan integration. Custom processing elements can be incorporated into the processing chain.
Clutter removal Automatic clutter processing can improve display presentation and aid detection of small targets
Radar display High performance radar scan conversion with multiple radars in the same window and multiple windows. Radar may be displayed with map data, overlays and with history trails. PPI, B-Scan and A-Scan displays supported.
AIS AIS decoding, display and recording
Record and replay Incoming radar video can be recorded to local or network storage for later analysis or training
Network streaming Radar video can be streamed from a network server to client displays in remote locations. Compression and processing can be used to make optimum use of available network bandwidth
Plot Extraction and target tracking Fully automatic target tracking is available with programmable acquire and no-acquire zones over the radar coverage. Highly configurable track extractor for different radar types. Track reports can be provided onto a network, used to control a camera (slew-to-cue) or converted into symbols for overlay display
Simulation Radar video, along with AIS, GPS and track data, can be simulated and used to provide representative data into a server or client

Video Modules:

Network or signal interface Cameras providing network data or standard analogue or digital signals are supported
Camera control Control of Chess and Pelco-D based cameras are supported as standard. The camera control supports manual adjustment of camera position (eg from a user interface) or automatic adjustment from a processor or video tracker
Video display Video data may be displayed in a window with optional overlays
Record and replay Video data may be recorded to local or network storage for later incident review
Processing Video data can be enhanced for improved display quality
Compression and streaming Video can be compressed (GPU-based) to standard H.264 and distributed over a network with control over bandwidth and quality of service
Slew-to-cue Camera may be steered based on track positions reported by radar tracker
Motion stabilisation Software modules analyse video from frame to frame and automatically stablise the image with respect to vibrations or motions of the camera platform
Video tracking Video tracking permits one or more objects to be tracked in real-time, with the results being used to report a target's position and/or move a camera to keep the target in the field of view

Display Modules:

Map Display High-resolution geo-referenced maps such as world vector shoreline, tiled map (internet sources) or NASA terrain
Track Display Target derived from a tracker or other external source (including AIS) may be displayed with built-in symbology
Screen Recording The screen display may be captured and recorded to file to preserve the operator display for incident analysis or training. Screen recordings may then be replayed on the same or other system
Radar Video Display Multiple radar videos can be displayed in the same window, along with maps and overlays. Radar video is transparently mixed with underlays. Up to six radar videos in one window
Video Display Camera video may be displayed with real-time overlays
View Control Software modules support intuitive view control adjustment using a mouse or touch screen, including pinch-to-zoom and drag to pan
Button Box User interface control for buttons
Display markers Range rings, electronic bearing line (EBL), variable range marker (VRM), parallel index lines
Alarms Alarms may be configured to detect targets moving in user-defined polygon areas
