ZeRRDiS® is a PC-based COTS system operating in a LINUX environment to process plots from a remote radar sensor, integrating the Local Air Picture with an intuitive man-machine interface supporting multi-layered synthetic video and display controls. Running on industry standard PC architectures and with APOIM® hardware for radar acquisition and scan-conversion, ZeRRDiS® offers a comprehensive set of display capabilities via twin display monitors using standard Matrox. Dual Display card. The radar display may be scaled and off-centered to display the video at any zoom factor.
ZeRRDis® is capable of receiving primary and secondary radar plots from a remote radar via standard telecommunications leased line. ZeRRDiS® features an optional raw video display capability depending on the requirements of the operator. Analogue or digital radar video and associated turning data are received by the system and transferred to the tracker module for processing plots. Plots and tracks are then fed into the Radar Display module which renders the radar pictures by transforming the incoming data and combining with standard and private maps and various symbology. These maps and symbology are based on latitude and longitude and can also be updated as and when required by the operator.
ZeRRDiS® offers a networked solution where a single Radar Display Processor (RDP) (with an APOIM®) provides processed plots and tracks across the LAN to be used by multiple client Radar Data Display (RDD) terminals. The RDD terminals uses the same modules for the display with control features for individual ownership of plots and tracks as selected by the operator.
ZeRRDiS® also features a recording capability for each of the RDP and RDD terminals. A dedicated RDD for playback and archiving can be provided for performance evaluation and incident investigations.
ZeRRDiS® is designed to work with Linux on industry standard Intel x86 processors which can offer familiar operations and maintenance environment and providing and extensible and supportable hardware platform.
