Cambridge Pixel supplies radar acquisition and display technology to Lockheed Martin Canada 

Cambridge Pixel, a developer of radar display, tracking and recording sub-systems, is supplying its radar acquisition and display technology to Lockheed Martin Canada for integration with its innovative naval Combat Management System 330.

The Cambridge Pixel scan converter runs in each display console to convert the polar-format network video into a PPI or B-Scan representation for display to the operator. The radar image must be scaled and adjusted to match the view being requested by the operator.

The radar image can then be combined with the map graphics, such as nautical charts, and overlay symbols, such as track positions. The combined multi-layer picture is then presented to the user. The CMS has full control over the presentation of the radar imagery, including colour, brightness, fading, trails and scan correlation.

Lockheed Martin’s naval Combat Management System 330, featuring Cambridge Pixel’s radar acquisition and display technology, is deployed by three different navies and on four different classes of ship, including the Royal Canadian Navy’s upgraded Halifax-class frigates – seen pictured is HMCS Calgary

David Johnson, CEO, Cambridge Pixel, said: “Our business is radar and we are thrilled that Lockheed Martin Canada has chosen to use our technology in its CMS 330 system, which is now deployed on four different classes of ship across three different navies.”

Cambridge Pixel’s radar technology is used in naval, air traffic control, vessel traffic, commercial shipping, security, surveillance and airborne radar applications. Its systems have been implemented in mission critical applications with companies such as BAE Systems, Frontier Electronic Systems, Lockheed Martin, Barco Defence, Blighter Surveillance Systems, Exelis, Kelvin Hughes, Navtech Radar, Raytheon, Royal Thai Air Force, Saab, Hanwha, Sofresud and Tellumat.
