General Dynamics introduces new smart display
General Dynamics Canada has unveiled its new SD8010 Smart Display for vehicles in harsh military environments.
The flexible and rugged platform that can run classified and unclassified information on a single display, eliminating the need for multiple control and display units within space-constrained ground combat vehicles. The company announced the new product on 29 May, 2012.
According to the company, the SD8010 Smart Display features Multiple Independent Levels of Security/Safety (MILS), a high-assurance security architecture for controlled information. Using the General Dynamics-developed Trusted Embedded Environment (TEE), the SD8010 can interface and process information at multiple security levels. TEE is designed specifically for tactical environments and is to be deployed on a number of General Dynamics' high-assurance products designed for military and homeland security application.
The SD8010 Smart Display is naturally convection-cooled to meet rigorous military standards. Additional key features include touch screen, multiple video and audio input channels, streaming and snapshot video capture, multiple vehicle-bus interfaces, wireless communications, VoIP capabilities, embedded Ground-Based GPS Receiver Application Module (GB-GRAM), multiple I/O ports and a solid-state hard drive.
