The Radar Video Record and Playback Server (RVRPS), designed for full compatibility with the Curtiss-Wright Radar Video Processor (RVP) and radar scan conversion hardware and software products, accepts multiple radar video network streams from RVP servers. It stores these streams on local or network-accessible remote storage, the amount of storage required being determined by the number of radar channels to be recorded and the maximum length of recordings. RVRPS holds each radar recording as a fileset rather than single file to overcome the limit on file size imposed by the operating system.

RVRPS supports multiple simultaneous playback of radar video streams to consoles for radar scan conversion and display. It emulates the network distribution protocol used by RVP to provide multicast radar video streams to consoles. Under operator control via RVRPS’s network application programming interface (API), each console may display either live or recorded radar video, or a combination of the two.

RVRPS stores a database of radar video recordings and supports archiving of selected filesets to permanent media such as DVD or Blu-ray disk. RVRPS creates ISO images from available radar recordings, writing the images to disk. A network API controls RVRPS, providing plain text commands for controlling record, replay and file maintenance.

Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions provides command-line applications with RVRPS, enabling system integrators to send control messages to RVRPS without upfront software development. Also included with RVRPS are a network API interface specification and a related application note. To monitor the status of the RVRPS application, RVRPS includes a graphical user interface (GUI) on a local engineering display. The RVRPS GUI can be used to provide remote system monitoring, run on a network-connected host.

Curtiss-Wright supplies the RVRPS product in two ways: as licensed software to be run on the customer’s hardware or as part of a turnkey system that is equipped with up to four GbE network interfaces, an archive device and optional IRIG-B decoder card, and with preloaded and configured Linux kernel and RVRPS software. In the first option, the recommended hardware is an Intel®-based Linux PC that is equipped with a high-performance processor (quad-core) and 8GB RAM.
