The selection was made by Exelis, the U.S. firm that is replacing the ships' legacy radar and video display sub-systems that interface to three radar signals and deliver real-time data to multi-function consoles and overlay maps.
"This upgrade program has taken standard servers and library software from our SPx product range and allowed Exelis to replace their legacy radar and video display sub-system with a modern, scalable and efficient solution," said David Johnson, managing director of Cambridge Pixel.
"Our SPx solution uses standard PC processing hardware on the client displays to simplify the system architecture by using multi-core processors and GPU processing to accelerate the real-time data display. A key feature of our SPx software is the intelligent division of tasks to the CPU and the GPU which is then able to carefully manage the flow of data to ensure that the real-time radar and video is displayed in real-time."
Terms of the contract from Exelis were not disclosed.
"Cambridge Pixel's software-based solution met all our requirements and has enabled us to reduce the specialized hardware content in the new command & control upgrade, thereby delivering improved reliability and ease-of-maintenance for our customer," said Steve Hill, senior program manager, Exelis Radar, Reconnaissance and Acoustic Systems.
