Cambridge Pixel launches ASD-View
Written by: Charlotte Hathway | Published:

Cambridge Pixel has added ASD-View to its air surveillance product portfolio.

The company develops radar display, tracking and recording sub-systems. It says this addition is designed to meet the growing demand for the visualisation of Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) aircraft data in maritime and surveillance applications.

ASD-View is a PC-based Windows application for ADS-B receivers that displays data from co-operating targets such as commercial aircraft, helicopters, light aircraft, and drones. ASD-View was developed to meet increasing demand for an ADS-B viewer from oil & gas platforms, port and harbour authorities and other maritime and surveillance applications.

Richard Warren, director of software, Cambridge Pixel, commented, “With the increasing adoption of ADS-B technology, by which aircraft transmit position and status information, the desire to incorporate this data into surveillance and maritime environments continues to grow.”

ASD-View is a standards-based viewer that interfaces with an ADS-B data stream and converts the reports into track symbols that are geo-referenced on a map. The software is compatible with a range of ADS-B decoders supporting ASTERIX CAT-21, AVR, BEAST, AirNav and 112-bit raw formats.

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, Blighter Surveillance Systems, Exelis, Hanwha Systems, Kelvin Hughes, Lockheed Martin, Navtech Radar, Raytheon, Saab Sensis, Royal Thai Air Force, Sofresud and Tellumat.
