AMHERST, MASS. Primagraphics Ltd.'s Metro architecture for radar-scan conversion provides for the acquisition, processing, distribution and display of radar and graphics data. It's based on two PCI boards: the Advantage radar input card (roughly $5,400) and the Virgo scan converter card (around $7,200). The Virgo's three input channels "can be customized for almost any radar source," said spokesman William Fox. The Advantage "accepts rho-theta format data via PCI bus and converts it to any of a range of raster formats."
