Why Cutting-Edge Video Solutions Are Essential for Enhanced Situational Awareness

As warfare moves from asymmetric counterinsurgency-focused operations, militaries must consider requirements for success in an ever-developing battlefield, often characterized by increased technology. The onboard sensor suites, optics, mission systems, and vehicle architectures become the eyes and ears of the crew members and the soldiers on board, making militaries worldwide rely on video imagery for situational awareness. Armored units must have an intimate understanding of their surrounding terrain and the capability to deal swiftly with incoming threats, whatever the conditions.

Adding modern cameras, sensors, and advanced video management and display technology to ground vehicles increases operator situational awareness with smaller, lighter systems that decrease SWaP while improving functionality. Intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) activities, the backbone of modern defense capabilities, relies on a robust and diverse network of integrated sensors, aircraft, and manpower. The value of this network ultimately depends on human capability to clearly see sensor imagery, discern essential details, and take decisive action. In the field, we have little or no control over the lighting and environmental conditions under which images are acquired from a sensor.
