Cambridge Pixel announces new award

16th August 2016 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Cambridge Pixel will supply software modules for radar scan conversion, target tracking and radar fusion for integration into Lockheed Martin’s new naval Vigilance radar system, the company announced on 16 August.

The navigation radar system will be fitted along with Kelvin Hughes solid-state SharpEye radar transceivers to more than 60 Royal Navy platforms over the next five years.  

The radar is being developed and supplied under a £44 million contract awarded to Lockheed Martin in January 2016 by the UK Ministry of Defence. The equipment will modernise ship and submarine navigation systems which are critical for safe navigation at sea.

Cambridge Pixel will also supply radar simulation and recording capabilities from its established SPx product family to assist Lockheed Martin during the development and test phase of the new navigation radar system.

David Johnson, CEO of Cambridge Pixel, said: ‘We are delighted to be working alongside Lockheed Martin’s engineers on this major upgrade of the navigation radars on the UK Royal Navy’s fleet of ships. Our technology software modules fit well with Lockheed Martin’s vision of developing a navigation radar system that meets the Royal Navy’s needs now but that also has a clear route to adding extra functionality in the future.’
