Radar Data Extraction
What is Radar Data Extraction?
Radar Data Extraction entails the receiving radar signals from surveillance radars, the decoding of various radar formats, and the transmission of that information to a variety of display mediums in digital form.
Critical to effective Radar Data Extraction is the timely receipt and transmit of the information, the proper decoding of data and the ease of distribution of data to locations either locally or remote to the radar site. Therefore, Ethernet/IP has become a transport method of choice to ensure accurate and scalable radar data configurations.
What products does PT provide in this application?
PT's Radar Receiver Software WAN Protocol Kit provides the critical software elements required to quickly develop radar data extraction applications. All of our WAN protocols adhere to a common application programming interface (API) for simplified application development.
PT's Radar Receiver Software supports a wide variety of radar formats:
- CD-2 (or FPS 117)
- Marconi 10-Bit
- ASTERIX (or Alenia, Selenia, Ericsson, RDIF, RAMP)
- Thomson-CSF (or TPR1000) and Thomson-TVT2
- Modified Eurocontrol
- General 18-Bit
- NEC Radar Extractor
PT's WAN Protocol Suite includes:
- Radar Receiver
- Synchronous Bit Stream Interface (SBSI)
- Frame Relay
- HDLC (ABM/LAPB, LAPD, NRM, SDLC)
- Asynchronous Data Transfer
- Development Tools and API
WAN/LAN Data Communications Servers: Robust, standalone WAN-over-IP communications devices ideal for bringing serial data streams, such as radar, to your local area network for accurate distribution to display devices.
Synchronous/Serial Adapters: Adhere to the PCI specification for inclusion in communications servers. They too are ideal for bringing serial data streams, such as radar, to your local area network for accurate distribution to display devices.
Managed WAN Gateway: Based on industry-standard CompactPCI architecture and Linux software, the Managed WAN Gateway supports both module hot-swap and remote management of all major functions in a single chassis. This increases operating efficiency while also reducing the number of unique spares required. Remote management via Ethernet makes centralized system management a reality.
PT's WAN protocol architecture is designed to preserve the customer's software investment:
- Multiple protocols can run concurrently on any of the PT communications hardware.
- All of PT's WAN Communications products allow for portability of applications from one communications hardware product to another.
