LIGHTWEIGHT, COMPACT RVG-SD1 PROVIDES 8-PORTS OF HIGHLY CONFIGURABLE SD/HD/3G-SDI VIDEO I/O EUROSATORY 2016 (Booth #HALL 5A, Stand J761), PARIS, FRANCE – June 13-17, 2016 – Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division introduces the newest member of the Rugged Video Gateway (RVG) family of video management solutions, for size, weight and power (SWaP)-constrained ground and airborne platforms. The 8-port, multi-format, RVG-SDI Crossbar Video Switch speeds and simplifies the routing of 3G, HD and SD-SDI video sources, such as distributing video camera data to multiple displays. The RVG-SDI functions as a non-blocking crossbar switch and features eight (8) external miniBNC connectors, each of which can be configured as either a video input or output. The unit’s unique level of configuration flexibility enables any input to be routed to any or all of the 7 remaining I/O ports. Additionally, the RVG-SD1 can be configured on-the-fly via its external RS-422 and CAN control interfaces or statically to support a specific mission.

The RVG-SDI supports a wide variety of switch configurations, for example, it can be configured as a 1:7 repeater, 7:1 switcher, 2:6 repeater, or a 6:2 switcher, without the seven (7) dedicated inputs and seven dedicated outputs typically required for such flexibility. The result is a smaller (49 x 160 x 185 mm) and lighter (2 kg) video switch that is ideal for use in space and weight constrained manned and unmanned platforms used in military and aerospace applications. Designed to perform optimally in harsh conditions, the conduction-cooled RVG-SDI requires no active cooling and supports a -40 to +70ºC operating temperature range. It has been certified to stringent MIL-STD-810G environmental standards and is DO-160 qualified.[Continue reading →]

Today’s maritime forces, even those with highly advanced radar, are facing a growing threat from the proliferation of anti-ship missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles, and Fast Attack Craft/Fast Inshore Attack Craft (FAC/FIAC), which can be deployed at a relatively low cost making them easily obtainable by enemies at sea and often undetected by radar. Currently, detecting these threats depends on the fatigue-prone human eye, which is why the U.S. Navy researchers launched the Combined EO/IR Surveillance and Response System (CESARS) program.

The Office of Naval Research’s (ONR) CESARS program combines two key subsystem requirements to make up an electro-optical shipboard defense system to protect surface ships from evolving threats.

Modern day processors for imaging, radar, and other sensors are complex systems each unique with diverse processing requirements per company, platform, sensor, and application. A common feature is that these systems require high bandwidth and high performance signal processing. Such is now readily available with advances in FPGA capabilities as well as their programmability, the incorporation of embedded graphical processors, the increasing number of cores with vector units, and the high bandwidth of PCI Express and multi-Gigabit Ethernet.

Another common feature is that as the flexibility and power of these sensor systems has appreciated, so has the complexity of their software control. It is not uncommon for the architecture of embedded imaging and other sensor systems to have a framework of multiple software executables for the interface, data, and control processing.[Continue reading →]

Countering the growing "backdoor" threat posed by terrorists, smugglers, pirates, and political activists at military air and naval bases, airports, and ports requires sophisticated multisensor surveillance systems to ensure that incursions are rapidly detected and actioned. A hybrid approach that brings together conventional radar systems with high-resolution video imaging sensors, radar, and video trackers - incorporating Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B) and Automatic Identification System (AIS) transponder technology to filter out authorized targets - can deliver the high-accuracy threat detection needed even in adverse climatic conditions and poor visibility.

A typical secured site presents multiple challenges to the deployment of an effective surveillance and security system. The layout of the site may mean that certain locations are hidden from the view of a given sensor, resulting in a security vulnerability unless steps are taken to improve coverage. Differentiation between real threats and legitimate movements, both outside and within the site, is essential to avoid real incursions becoming “lost in the noise.” Moreover, these threats may take multiple forms – unauthorized individuals/insurgents, vehicles or vessels, or airborne objects including small malicious drones may all represent real incursions; a surveillance system needs to provide early detection of all anticipated threat types.[Continue reading →]

The possibilities of display technologies in military applications; the software and networking that keeps it all together. “What is possible” in technology seems to start in the imaginations of screenwriters and science fiction stories, and then moves sooner or later into reality. We’ve all watched movies such as Elysium or Minority Report and have seen the transparent computer screens and video walls with information being moved and tossed by swipe touch gestures. As consumers, we become aware of the newest technologies as they relate to making our lives easier or increasing our level of entertainment satisfaction, such as 4K televisions, heads-up displays (HUD) in our cars, and gaming platforms such as Xbox Kinect air-gesture technology.

Sometimes the trickle-down effect starts in the highest levels of military operation, such as the HUD in military aircraft. However, sometimes technology advances first mature in either the industrial or retail markets, achieving technological cost efficiencies before making their way into military operations.
