Cambridge Pixel has launched a new PC-based ADS-B aircraft data viewer, expanding its air surveillance portfolio.
The ASD-View software receives broadcast data from commercial aircraft, light aircraft, helicopters and drones and displays the information as symbols overlaid on a map.
Cambridge Pixel, founded in 2007, said the software is in response to growing demand from sectors such as oil and gas, port and harbour authorities and the wider maritime and surveillance industries.
The ADS-B software, Cambridge Pixel said, is compatible with most ADS-B decoders.
Richard Warren, director of software, Cambridge Pixel, commented: “With the increasing adoption of ADS-B technology, by which aircraft transmit position and status information, the desire to incorporate this data into surveillance and maritime environments continues to grow.
“ASD-View provides a clean, simple and versatile display application, with the option to upgrade to the enhanced capabilities of our ASD-100 air situation display application, if desired.
“The ASD-100 permits ADS-B data to be combined with primary radar and tracks for a fully fused integrated air picture of both cooperating and non-cooperating targets.”
