Radar Data Extractor

RDE is a high performance, software configurable radar signal processing unit transforming primary radar video output – from virtually any surveillance radar into high quality digital primary raw video data stream and/or plot/track reports suitable for processing by Surveillance Data Processor (SDP). RDE runs under Linux OS.

RDE performance parameters and interfaces make it well suited for digitalization of a variety of radar types such as:

  • Airport Surveillance Radar (primarily for APP and TWR)
  • Air Defence Radar
  • Vessel Tracking Radar
  • Ground Movement Radar
  • Meteorological Radar


  • Digital Raw Video Data stream in proprietary compress format
  • Plot/Track reports in standard ASTERIX format
  • Easy implementation into the existing system architecture
  • Provides SNMP interface for Supervision & Monitoring systems
  • COTS hardware with embedded special-purpose Signal Processing Unit (SPU)
