Radar Video Processor (RVP)
Radar Acquisition, Tracking, Distribution and Processing
Radar Video Processor (RVP) is a family of high-performance radar acquisition, tracking and distribution servers that are designed to address a broad range of radar processing requirements, from network radar video servers to ruggedized naval tracking solutions. RVP servers are designed to work with our extensive range of radar client solutions for video and track display. Alternatively, they may be used in standalone configurations providing, for example, radar plot extraction and tracking data into an existing display or fusion system. RVP servers can be implemented as customized rugged systems for demanding environments, PC-based for benign environments or as VME or VPX card assemblies for embedded applications. RVP is fully interoperable with hardware and software-based radar scan conversion products from Curtiss-Wright.
RVP benefits from Curtiss-Wright’s tradition of excellence in developing integrated and OEM-level solutions for the demanding high-performance requirements of defense and aerospace applications. Curtiss-Wright’s open-systems hardware combined with modular software design provides powerful performance in cost-effective, compact form factors that are built on standard COTS hardware platforms.
Integrated software modules form the heart of RVP. They drive radar processing capabilities, and because they are designed for industry-standard operating systems and computing platforms, they can be easily maintained and upgraded for a long lifespan. Typically the RVP software modules are built into an RVP server system, integrated with an appropriate computing platform and hardware for radar acquisition and display. These integrated systems are commonly classified as RVP Radar Video Distribution Server, RVP Plot Extractor and RVP Tracker.
An RVP Radar Video Distribution server acts as a central location for receiving primary radar video and distributing it via a standard Ethernet-based local area network (LAN) to a range of client displays, where it is scan-converted and displayed.
RVP receives radar video through a network interface or a Curtiss-Wright radar input card, such as Osiris. The radar input card receives radar turning signals and analog/digital video before processing the signals to generate integrated digital data for analysis. RVP supports an extensive range of radar input types such as ACP/ARP, Synchro, RADDS and ASDE-3, as well as a variety of parallel and serial azimuth formats.
RVP offers moving platform support, optional radar recording for post-mission analysis and debrief, and full auto-tracking solutions for naval, air traffic control and vessel traffic applications. It provides a full-featured maintenance interface and a network-based remote API that allows system integrators to control its operation from client workstations.
