Cambridge Pixel has delivered its radar tracking and fusion software to ASV Global to enhance situational awareness on ASV’s range of unmanned vessels, the company announced on 4 September.

Cambridge Pixel's tracking and sensor fusion capability has been integrated into ASV’s ASView control system. The control system supports autonomous and remote control of the vessels.  

The SPx Server radar tracking software receives radar video from the onboard radars, including Navico's Simrad 4G or Halo radars. The processing of video to detect targets uses adaptive algorithms to accommodate a wide range of operating conditions. 

Richard Warren, director of software, Cambridge Pixel, said: ‘ASV has developed an advanced multi-sensor platform for autonomous vessels and we are pleased to have provided our tracking and fusion software to enhance situational awareness.

‘Navico's Simrad 4G and Halo radars are well suited to this application and Cambridge Pixel's tracker can be configured to make the very best use of these sensors.’

The SPx radar tracking software is designed to operate with many different radar types and is already widely deployed in command and control, maritime navigation, security, airports and vessel traffic applications.
