L-3 IEC introduces VideoScout-CM2

1st November 2011 - 09:09 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


L-3 Interstate Electronics Corporation (IEC) has announced the release of its VideoScout-CM2 video exploitation and management system with a new rugged communications module designed for arduous environments, in a statement issued on 31 October 2011.

VideoScout-CM2 is a ruggedised, certified video Processing, Exploitation and Dissemination (PED) management system for military applications. The system is designed to provide the warfighter with intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) information from a variety of manned and unmanned platforms in real time.

According to the company, the VideoScout-CM2 communications module provides users with an environmentally protected suite of digital and analogue receivers, giving operators the ability to collect two simultaneous aircraft video feeds, as well as video from two co-located sensors. Real-time dissemination of video information can be distributed over an Internet Protocol (IP) or tactical network, and the module is designed to easily integrate into existing C4ISR systems and intelligence networks and is expandable to include new waveforms as they emerge.

The system is built and certified to MIL-STD-901D, and can be mounted to towers, ships, vehicles and small aircraft, ‘enabling air and ground surveillance in conditions where hardware is continuously exposed to extreme conditions, such as humidity, salt, fog, dust and rain’.

L-3 IEC has also equipped the system with the newest version of VideoScout-software, allowing users to easily DVR, zoom, pause, annotate, archive, search, retrieve, analyze, create derivative video, stream and disseminate video to improve situational awareness across the battlespace. According to the company, ‘when integrated with existing intelligence systems, VideoScout provides a warfighter, regardless of location, the capability to receive, capture, exploit, manage, archive and distribute video and imagery without the need for specialized training, skill sets or resources’.
