Cutting Edge Video Solutions for Battlefield Enhanced Situational Awareness 

Video and image processing solutions, from the sensor to screen, have become the best way to get vital visual information to warfighters in a fast and effective manner. Providing operators the ultimate level of situational awareness is 360° video systems.

 

The tools and technologies responsible for providing situational awareness are continuously evolving to increasingly provide eyes and ears to today's militaries. Video and image processing solutions, from the sensor to the screen, have become the best way to get vital visual information to warfighters in a fast and effective manner. 360° video systems provide operators with the ultimate level of situational awareness.

Minimizing Glass to Glass Latency

The key to increasing situational awareness for today's ground combat vehicles is in designing a video management system that reduces latency from end to end.

These highly advanced video systems blend accurate, fully stitched images from all vehicle-mounted cameras into a seamless, panoramic image that most closely resembles what the human eye sees. These images can further be enhanced with sensor fusion, data overlays, augmented reality, and so on to increase situational awareness, which leads to increased mission effectiveness.

To ensure the safety and security of warfighters and equipment inside and outside the vehicle, visual information must be accessible as close to real-time as possible. To accomplish this, these critical systems must acquire, distribute, and intuitively present high volumes of data quickly. However, as the number of elements in these vital systems grows, so does the risk of system latency. Therefore, seamlessly integrating all components of an end-to-end video solution, and reducing latency, is critical to increasing situational awareness.
