Abstract [en]

Analytics tool for radar data was a project that started when radar specialists at Saab needed to modernize their tools that analyzes binary encoded radar data. Today, the analysis is accomplished using inadequate and ineffective applications not designed for that purpose, and consequently this makes the analysis tedious and more difficult compared to using an appropriate interface. The applications had limitations regarding different radar systems too, which restricted their usage significantly. The solution was to design a new software that imports, translates and visualizes the data independent of the radar system.

The software was developed with several parts that communicates with each other to translate a binary file. A binary file consists of a series of bytes containing the information of the targets and markers separating the revolutions of the radar. The byte stream is split according to the ASTERIX protocol that defines the length of each Data Item and the extracted positional values are stored in arrays. The code is then designed to convert the positional values to cartesian coordinates and plot them on the screen. The software has implemented features such as play, pause, reverse and a plotting history that allows the user to analyze the data in a simple and user-friendly manner.

There are also numerous ways the software could be extended. The code is constructed in such a way that new features can be implemented for additional analytical abilities without affecting the components already designed.
