A Radar Visualization System Upgrade
This work develops a system to visualize the information for radar systems interfaces. It is a flexible, portable software system that allows to be used for radars that have different technologies and that is able to be adapted to the specific needs of each application domain in an efficient way. Replacing the visualization and processing units on existing radar platforms by this new system, a practical and inexpensive improvement is achieved.
