Cambridge Pixel has launched the SPx Open Access software package designed for software developers who want to access radar recordings for analysis or display, including research and development for special applications.
SPx Open Access provides a set of software tools and libraries for C++ or .NET that support reading radar recordings taken from one of Cambridge Pixel’s recording products. It also includes sample applications for Windows and Linux.
SPx Open Access has the option to include a radar recording capability, enabling radar video to be directly captured from network radars, or from radars providing radar signals using one of Cambridge Pixel’s HPx radar interface cards.
The package includes support for MATLAB integration, allowing developers to create custom processing components, or visualize radar video, using standard tools from MATLAB.
“This package brings together a software development kit, along with tools, utilities and sample applications that simplify access to radar recordings,” said Cambridge Pixel’s managing director David Johnson. “It will enable research institutions to get access to radar video for research and development of new processing methods.”
