[Avionics Today 05-28-2015] The Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) has selected Cambridge Pixel, a developer of radar display and tracking subsystems, to upgrade its air defense capability at several strategic sites across the country, including air force bases and training facilities.

A key requirement of the upgrade was to reduce long-term maintenance costs by using commercially available products while adding new tracking, safety and display features. These included delivering improved target tracking from the primary and Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) sensors, track fusion, safety alerts and then presentation of the integrated data on a large, clear Plan Position Indicator (PPI) display on top of user-selectable maps.   

Cambridge Pixel has supplied RTAF with its radar processing and tracking products which interface to the existing primary and secondary IFF radars to provide upgraded target tracking from the primary and IFF sensors and fusion into a single track source. The display is handled by Cambridge Pixel’s ASD-100 air situation display software, which provides an integrated display picture of primary and secondary video and tracks that are overlaid on maps.
