RSP 347
Radar Signal Processing Unit

The RSP 347 is a complete hardware and software solution for acquiring and processing analog or digital radar video from radar units. It provides tools for radar video capturing and broadcasting, plot extraction and target tracking as well as radar control. Due to the modular design it can be easily integrated to existing installations and interfaced to a wide variety of radar equipment.

The RSP 347 can be connected to a PC-compatible server, running the RSP application software, via USB 2.0 port.

It can be optionally equipped with an embedded PC-server hardware which is sufficient to capture analog or digital radar video and broadcast the digital video without target tracking.

The unit is shipped with RSP application software (see below for details).

Connection cables for different analog radar units can be ordered as needed.

All the parameters of the RSP 347 can be viewed and configured by a graphical user interface, using a provided service display application.
