CW SoftScan Radar Scan Conversion Package

Radar Scan Conversion Package

This embedded computing radar product portfolio provides ultra-high radar scan-conversion performance using unique graphics processor unit (GPU)-accelerated algorithms. Using the power and performance of today’s modern COTS graphics offerings, SoftScan provides unrivalled scan conversion performance with minimal CPU utilisation.

Through SoftScan radar data can be displayed in a range of formats – Plan Position Indicator (PPI), A-Scan and B-Scan. SoftScan supports input of polar format radar video directly from radar acquisition hardware or from an RVP Server through a standard network connection.

GPUs provide the signal processing power necessary for supporting powerful algorithms that prevent holes and spokes in the displayed image even in applications that require zooming in at long range, while ensuring the display of all single point targets.
