Frontier Electronic Systems provides both analog and digital maritime radar data distribution. Our scalable radar distribution technology is fully customizable to meet the needs of any radar distribution requirement. Our LAN Radar Data Distribution System (LRADDS) distributes radar video data over an open architecture LAN to legacy analog and Open Architecture Computer Equipment (OACE) compliant display consoles and allows for direct interface to standard Navy radars, IFF sensors, and legacy analog consoles. We offer this same video distribution technology for camera video applications.
Our experience as a military equipment supplier ranges from design inception to maintenance. We provide several products that enhance the sustainment of our deployed equipment such as Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (IETM), our tablet-based Portable Maintenance Assistant (PMA), Radar Simulation (RSIM), and Radar Recorders.
What makes FES's radar video distribution so unique is its scalability. Our technology can be scaled up or down and customized to meet the needs for any radar video distribution requirements.
Our scalable solution distributes radar video data over an open architecture LAN to Open Architecture Computer Equipment (OACE) compliant display consoles. Its scalable design is easily adaptable to comply with your existing equipment through single or multiple VME Chassis. Our Scalable Radar Distribution technology is optimized for use in any existing electrical equipment enclosure as a self-powered, add-on VME card cage.
This technology can be used in portable systems, rack-mounted equipment enclosures, or stand-alone solutions using our specially designed rugged enclosures. Our scalable radar distribution architecture can be customized to accommodate many applications, including:
The scalable architecture provides the flexibility to accommodate different radar distribution needs. A single radar distribution chassis can accept inputs from one (1) to six (6) radars and output to as many as eight (8) digital display consoles. Need more capability? Simply add an expansion chassis to meet your needs.
A single chassis can provide an entire radar distribution solution, or can be functionality scaled across multiple chassis at first installation or through incremental expansion to accommodate added radar or display interfaces. For example, one chassis may house RIMs for radar conversion and distribution; another may house the processors necessary for scan conversion, communicating via network switches housed in each chassis. The scale and configuration fit the need.
