D-VEX complements existing ground control and mission planning software by providing operators of ISR platforms with easy-to-use tools to derive, manage and distribute critical intelligence from the full motion video gathered, for immediate tactical advantage. 

Improve situational awareness

D-VEX helps operators gain better situational awareness and ensures critical events are not overlooked by providing low latency video display, instant replay and moving map.

Instant access enables fast reporting

D-VEX supports Phase 0 and Phase 1 imagery analysis, providing tools to allow operators to exploit live imagery and to communicate intelligence as situations develop, using map chips and georeferenced images.

Automated Target Indication

Automated target indication from Sentient Vision Systems (Kestrel Land MTI and Kestrel Maritime)* makes it easier for analysts to detect, analyze and report on targets and events.

Retain mission-critical knowledge

D-VEX maximises the value extracted from surveillance imagery by providing a searchable, geo-referenced video library in which collected video can be archived and retained for immediate retrieval. The gaining of deeper insights into your operational area is accelerated with end-to-end data management and search functionality that condenses thousands of hours of mission data and assists the authoring of post-flight intelligence products.

Ground-based video replay

D-VEX provides a ground-based, off-platform replay system for multi-channel flight recorders and tactical computers. D-VEX complements existing on-platform systems with efficient on-the-ground analysis, reporting, cataloguing and archiving capabilities.

Perform detailed post-mission event analysis

D-VEX provides Phase 2 and Phase 3 post-mission imagery exploitation and reporting. It allows operators to instantly search for and retrieve the precise event of interest out of thousands of hours of collected video.

Create reports for timely information sharing

D-VEX accelerates the generation of mission presentations, efficiently condensing hours of flight time into minutes of actionable intelligence using highlight videos, snapshots, map chips and annotations.

Facilitate training and mission lessons

Imagery from every mission can be returned for assessment and training purposes, used for informing new arrivals and ensuring valuable field experience doesn’t disappear with every troop rotation.

Ensure retention of video evidence

Keep video and metadata from every mission in long-term storage for on-going investigations, event and location cross referencing and legally mandated archiving requirements.


D-VEX Video Exploitation ImageThe most pressing challenge facing video analysts is how to efficiently process and manage the large volumes of video imagery collected from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and surveillance aircraft. Without effective tools, critical information can be overlooked and post mission analysis and reporting is time consuming.

D-VEX accelerates the intelligence processing workflow with essential real-time and forensic video exploitation and data management tools. With the ability to synchronize and transfer mission data between systems, D-VEX solves data management problems for military, government, public safety and commercial ISR operations.
