Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions offers a variety of video distribution, management, and switching products to meet demanding applications. These products include board level and fully-configured turnkey solutions to meet your rugged deployed program requirements.

Curtiss-Wright’s industry-leading Video Management System (VMS) offers complete surveillance solutions for airborne and other applications. The VMS includes scalable rugged displays, video distribution and recording equipment. The VMS components are highly interoperable and easy to install and reconfigure. As a fully integrated system, VMS uses the touch-screen technology on Curtiss-Wright displays to enable pilots and observers to independently select, view and record images with no signal loss from multiple camera and sensors. In addition, video transmission downlink via microwave is available.

VMS has been successfully fielded in a wide range of demanding applications, including search and rescue and border patrol operations. The equipment can be used with equal effectiveness on both fixed and rotary wing aircraft, and has been deployed by police forces and the military in the USA, Europe and Australia.

A VMS is typically characterized by:

  • Video streams from multiple sensors or computers
  • Distribution of video streams to multiple displays
  • Flexible display of video – full-screen or quad/picture-in-picture/picture-by-picture
  • Multi-channel recording capability

The principal advantages of a VMS are:

  • Easier integration and maintenance
  • Reduced cost and higher reliability (simplified inter-unit cabling)
  • Flexibility and scalability for platform upgrades
