UK-based company Cambridge Pixel announced on 19 February that it has been selected by South Korean defence company Hanwha Systems to supply its SPx radar technology for installation on the Republic of Korea Navy’s (RoKN’s) fleet of Chamsuri II (also known as Patrol Killer Experimental-B or PKX-B)-class fast attack craft and Daegu (FFX-II)-class frigates.
“Engineers at Hanwha Systems in Gumi City, South Korea, needed advanced and field-proven radar processing components… for the development of its latest multi-function display console: the FFX-B2.
“It was vital that the software modules provided by Cambridge Pixel could be built into Hanwha’s own application code thereby enabling Hanwha’s development team to deliver a native solution to the [South] Korean navy that can be maintained and supported locally,” said the company, adding that it will supply “radar interfacing and distribution capability for a number of different radar types, along with software for radar scan-conversion, network distribution, and multi-channel radar recording”.
