Cambridge Pixel is providing key technology to Lockheed Martin as part of a £44 million Royal Navy upgrade contract.

Lockheed Martin Integrated Systems UK has chosen the Cambridge business to supply software modules for radar scan conversion, target tracking and radar fusion.

The tech will be integrated into Lockheed Martin’s new state-of-the-art Naval Vigilance Radar system.

The system, along with Kelvin Hughes solid-state SharpEye™ radar transceivers, will be fitted to more than 60 Royal Navy platforms over the next five years.

The new equipment is part of the Navigation Radar Programme (NRP), a £44m Royal Navy upgrade awarded to Lockheed Martin by the Ministry of Defence in January.

To assist Lockheed Martin during the development and test phase of the new navigation radar system, Cambridge Pixel is also supplying radar simulation and recording capabilities from its established SPx product family.

David Johnson, CEO of Cambridge Pixel, said: “We are delighted to be working alongside Lockheed Martin’s engineers on this major upgrade of the navigation radars on the UK Royal Navy’s fleet of ships.

“Our technology software modules fit well with Lockheed Martin’s vision of developing a navigation radar system that meets the Royal Navy’s needs now but that also has a clear route to adding extra functionality in the future.”
