Naviation RadarRecorder is a platform facilitating the review or playback of the screen of a separate computer system, for instance a radar situation display in an Air Traffic Control. That was the igniting spark of the project, hence the name.

When investigating accidents or incidents it is useful to review what data was available to the Air Traffic Controller at the time. This process is sometimes referred to as Legal Recording as such recording is sometimes required through various regulations.

Over time the project has gotten some spin-offs in the form of a few other real-world applications where the technology is closely related and many aspects of the platform reusable. Read below about the SpyGuy, CloneBoy and BigBrother recorder products.
