Barco's rugged extreme displays selected for Scout SV
Visualization pioneer Barco is proud to announce that General Dynamics UK, the prime contractor for the British Army's Scout Specialist Vehicle (Scout SV), has selected Barco's 13" rugged extreme displays for the program, following a competitive bid.
SV is one of the British Army's most important vehicle programs for the next decade. Barco has developed the TX-335S, a 13" crew station display, especially for it. Based on Barco's existing offer of TX rugged extreme displays, the TX-335S provides operators with a visualization technology that is ideally suited to extremely demanding environments.
"Vehicle operators in the field deserve the best equipment available in order to do their jobs," comments Andy Powell, Supply Chain Manager, General Dynamics UK. "That's why we selected Barco's TX display family. These displays offer the British Army the reliability and durability it needs, in a future-proof package that will endure for the project's entire lifetime."
"We are very pleased to have signed this new contract with General Dynamics UK," comments Reggy Mortier, Barco's Director Key Account Management. "The results of our shared experiences with General Dynamics UK's engineering, program and commercial teams have now culminated in the TX-335S, which will offer the SV operators the best possible displays."
Available in sizes from 10" to 17", Barco's TX displays offer the latest proven technologies, such as low-reflection touch screen, NVIS capability, and sunlight readability. The TX's innovative and patented thermal management system makes the displays fit for the harshest temperature environments. The combination of low-risk, proven display technology and Barco's innovative display concepts makes the TX series the most trusted mission-critical displays for vehicle operations on the market.
