Kongsberg wins Stryker ECP smart display contract

10th July 2013 - 16:35 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Kongsberg Integrated Tactical Systems (KITS) will supply commander’s and driver’s smart displays for the US Army Stryker Engineering Change Proposal (ECP) programme under a new contract announced on 9 July.

The contract was awarded by General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS). The work includes the design, development, fabrication, test and performance of the Driver’s Situational Awareness Display (DSAD) and the Commander’s Situational Awareness Display (CSAD) for the Stryker ECP programme.

Stryker is a family of eight-wheel-drive combat vehicles, built for the US Army by GDLS. The Stryker ECP programme aims to improve technologies on the vehicle fleet to provide a stronger engine, improved suspension, more on-board electrical power and next-generation networking and computing technology.

Åsmund Groven, president, KITS, said: ‘This highly competitive bid for the CSAD and DSAD was a perfect fit for KITS, whose CORTEX displays meet or exceed the most demanding maritime and combat vehicle requirements. Extremely rugged and waterproof, the high resolution CORTEX displays also feature a high contrast ratio, which not only reduces viewer fatigue but makes them the most sunlight readable displays on the market today.’

The CORTEX smart displays that will be used for the CSAD and DSAD feature an on-board processor and additional I/O ports for both data and video.

The Stryker ECP programme is managed by the US Army’s Project Manager, Stryker Brigade Combat Team which is under the leadership of the Program Executive Office for Ground Combat Systems (PEO GCS.)
