Software modules for radar-camera sensor integration released by Cambridge Pixel

CAMBRIDGE, United Kingdom. Cambridge Pixel engineers announced a new line of software modules for radar and camera security designers to integrate different sensor types into their solutions to reduce development cost and time.

Secure-X brings a toolkit of software building blocks for and camera interfacing, processing, and display with modules for radar processing, acquisition, tracking of radar and video targets, scan conversion, fusion, recording, and display. It also comes as a ready-to-run surveillance application for integrating radar and video cameras with threat display, recording, and target tracking – with optional source code for extension, localization and long-term support.

The Secure-X family’s most recent addition is the VTx Server, which delivers target tracking from camera video. A typical situation for this device would be where targets may be automatically acquired from a radar and then passed to the video tracker for frame-by-frame tracking. The video tracker, which is software-based and accelerated with GPU processing, then analyses the video data frame-by-frame to discover the motion of a target of interest. The output may also be used to display a target position or move a camera to maintain a target of interest in the field of view.

The product family is based on components from ’s SPx and SPx-AV software modules, which are used in military and commercial applications, including security and C2 systems. These modules come as C++ classes that can be built into a Windows or application. Secure-X interfaces to many standard radars such as Kelvin Hughes, Terma, Blighter, Navtech, JRC, Simrad and Raytheon as well as to video and related sensors.
