Cambridge Pixel Radar Modules Supplied to SOFRESUD for Oil Rig Security in Gulf of Guinea

Cambridge Pixel, a British-based provider of primary radar display and tracking subsystems, has supplied its Secure-X radar modules to maritime surveillance and fleet monitoring specialists SOFRESUD for an oil field security application in West Africa.

The software modules - for radar acquisition, tracking, scan-conversion and display - form part of a maritime security solution developed by SOFRESUD for Total Nigeria in the Gulf of Guinea, a vast maritime zone that curves along the west coast of Africa from Gabon to Liberia.

Dr David Johnson, Cambridge Pixel's CEO, said: "We are delighted to have been selected to provide our software to SOFRESUD for this critical surveillance operation in the Gulf of Guinea, which is one of the world's piracy hotspots. Our software will make it possible to connect the different radars into the VMAS system and to enhance field protection by detecting and tracking small non-cooperative targets and thereby minimising production delays."
