General Dynamics unveils rugged smart displays
General Dynamics Canada has unveiled its new ultra-rugged SD8000 family of smart display products with the quad-core 3rd generation Intel Core processor, bringing latest in commercial computing to military vehicles. These new smart displays meet the computing-intense requirements of the battlefield while conserving size, weight and power inside military vehicles, effectively doubling the computing capabilities of previous dual-core smart displays.
Developed for ground combat vehicles in harsh military environments, these enhanced product features provide a flexible platform that adapts to the changing dynamics of missions while supporting interoperability and future technology enhancements. General Dynamics' rugged Smart Displays are onboard a variety US Army ground combat vehicle platforms including the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP), Stryker and Bradley vehicles. With a significant savings in weight, space and power over conventional architectures, General Dynamics' smart displays provide increased affordability and easy integration into vehicle C4I sub-systems.
According to the company, the next generation displays are 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. General Dynamics has also integrated Intel Virtualization Technology to enable the use of Multiple Independent Levels of Security/Safety (MILS), a high assurance security architecture for controlled information.
