Radar and Video Common API Software Architecture

RVL+ is the common API platform that supports Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions radar and video product line. To aid in the system integration and application generation process, RVL+ provides a common application programming interface (API) to users. This reduces the time required for product familiarization and integration and eases the burden during the generation of software applications. RVL+ provides C-language libraries that support the functionality of a range of radar and video products and provide users with the tools to easily integrate radar acquisition, video mixing and radar scan conversion capabilities into their applications.

By providing a common interface, RVL+ streamlines access to the full functionality of each of the individual modules of a radar system, facilitating integration for the control and configuration of each of the individual parts. As it supports highly flexible, modular and scalable API architecture, RVL+ easily incorporates new radar and video product designs, ensuring software compatibility for a smooth transition from generation to generation of radar and video products. RVL+ further ensures retention of software applications and knowledge throughout a program's lifetime.

The client-server architecture of RVL+ offers a high degree of flexibility across a span of system architectures. This flexibility includes the option of co-locating RVL+ servers on a single SBC or distributing them across multiple cores, hosts or CPUs. Using X-Windows, the client-side API supports multi-threaded applications and interaction. RVL+ supports Osiris, Osiris B, Eagle 2 and Video Mixer PMC.

RVL+ is characteristic of Curtiss-Wright hardware and software products that offer effective, flexible, modular solutions for acquisition, distribution and display of radar video. These systems prove their value and performance in a wide range of roles, such as ship-based console display systems, land-based coastal surveillance systems and air traffic control (ATC) centers.
