CANBERRA, Australia – General Dynamics Mediaware has delivered seven D-VEX next-generation, end-to-end digital video exploitation systems to the Australian Defence Force (ADF). The man-portable version of the D-VEX system extends the operational efficiencies of the 20th Surveillance and Target Acquisition (20STA) Regiment Royal Australian Artillery and improves the reporting capabilities of the forward-deployed intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) specialist team.
Since December 2012, D-VEX systems have been deployed with the Shadow 200 unmanned aerial systems to enhance the distribution of actionable intelligence amongst Australian troops and coalition forces. One of several powerful offerings in the General Dynamics’ portfolio of ISR exploitation solutions, D-VEX provides operators with effective tools for analysing live and recorded motion imagery with linked map displays to provide forward-deployed forces with situational awareness.
“We continue to take what we learn from our close partnership with the Australian Defence Force to enhance and refine the techniques and tools that enable warfighters to leverage ISR motion imagery for tactical advantage,” said Kevin Moore, chief technology officer of General Dynamics Mediaware. “The laptop-based D-VEX system is easy to use and has low lifecycle costs, providing the Australian Defence Force with the ability to record and disseminate reports to the local ground command in real-time, saving valuable time and resources.”
General Dynamics Mediaware will be showcasing its D-VEX system at the 2014 Singapore Airshow. Live demonstrations of the next-generation video exploitation solution will be available throughout the show (February 11-16) at the Team Defence Australia booth #H65.
