Air Situation Display Application
ASD-100 is Cambridge Pixel's PC-based air surveillance display
application for both primary and secondary radar data. It is a
complete ready-to-run Windows application for display of radar and
associated information, including: radar video, tracks and safety
alarms. ASD-100 is designed principally for military air surveillance
and ATC applications, it runs on any modern Windows (7/8/8.1) PC,
accepting input data from the network in open ASTERIX formats.
ASD-100 can interface to a number of different ASTERIX data inputs,
including: CAT-240 (radar video), CAT-48 (track reports) and CAT-4 (safety
alert messages). All data is presented on a large, clear PPI display, overlaid
on top of user-selectable maps. Cambridge Pixel's field-proven scan
converter is built into ASD-100, providing a smooth, flexible and accurate
display of the radar video. Up to four streams of radar video may be input
and selected for display in any combination. These videos might include
the background primary, processed primary, MTI and secondary (IFF),
depending on the radar. In addition to the four video channels, four track
receiving channels are available, allowing primary, secondary and fused
tracks all to be received and displayed simultaneously.

Safety alerts such as Short Term Conflict Alerts (STCA), Area Proximity
Warnings (APW) and Minimum Safe Altitude Warnings (MSAW) may be
sent to ASD-100 in ASTERIX CAT-4 format, for example from Cambridge
Pixel's SPx SafetyNet Server application. ASD-100 displays a prominent
visual warning of any alerts on the screen, for acknowledgement by the
operator, as well as a graphical representation of the conflicts while they
Flight plan support is built into ASD-100, allowing operators to create, edit
and save flight plans into an internal database. Flight plans in the database
are matched against all current aircraft tracks, using their callsign or Mode
3/A code, as available. A matched flight plan is deemed to be active and
the label of the corresponding track may reflect this.
The graphical user interface has been designed with modern touchscreen
displays in mind. To this end, the frequently used controls are readily
accessible and operated by large buttons. Common view controls, such
as pinch-to-zoom and slide-to-pan are supported. Tools available within
ASD-100 allow intercept vectors to be calculated and displayed, rulers to
be drawn between two reference points or targets, and individual tracks
to be designated, all with simple touch controls.
ASD-100 can be used as part of a comprehensive upgrade of legacy air
defence processing and display systems, which may also include
replacement of legacy track extractor hardware. Such upgrades are
predominantly software based, making them cost-effective and futureproof. Cambridge Pixel's software produces and consumes open
standard ASTERIX data, meaning it is compatible with other systems
using these formats. Furthermore, source code licencing of ASD-100 is
available, allowing developers to extend and localize the operator displays
and offer long term local support.
