Barco, since many years renowned as expert for mission-critical display software, was subcontracted by EADS to contribute software components for radar data processing to the Estonian coastal surveillance system. The radar data processing software components developed by Barco allow the integrated monitoring of surface and air targets in the controlled area.
In 2002 the Estonian Government, preparing its entry into the European Union, authorized European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS) to install an advanced Coastal Surveillance
System that would meet all stringent requirements on the protection of external borders, which is an essential prerequisite for joining the European Union. The system significantly enhances the performance of the existing coastal surveillance system.
