VMS [Video Management System]
• All role equipment is routed to the VMS. This
includes multiple inputs from on board cameras
such as FLIR & Wescam, i.e. live video feeds from
all the cameras in the turret (thermal, low light,
spotter, daylight colour camera, image fusion etc.).
• In addition to cameras, the video recorder/s,
Observer Mission Mapping System, microwave
uplinks/downlinks and other special mission
computers such as ANPR are routed to the VMS.
• Each display is then connected to the VMS via a
single multi-core cable. Once connected any display
can call up any signal/image at any time. Multiple
video windows can be invoked on each display and
images controlled via touch screen or hard keys.
