The Challenges of Cost Effective Video Management System IntegrationDownload PDF
The proliferation of video sources on-board today’s fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, and tactical ground vehicles has resulted in the need for modern video ancillary equipment to ensure the video’s usability and availability. This creates a requirement for video system upgrades on aging aircraft or completely new video system architectures which, due to both budgetary and size, weight and power (SWaP) constraints, has increased demand for cost-effective, SWaP-optimized video management and rugged display solutions.
Choosing the right video system components that will keep system cost and weight down – while also reducing program risk and time to market – is often challenging. Device interoperability issues can arise both between the ancillary equipment as well as with legacy sensors. Furthermore, it is important that all video system components are rugged enough to maintain stable operation in harsh environments. Substituting commercial, lab, or office-based products that are designed for different uses and environments in order to reduce the initial outlay can result in reliability and system footprint issues. While the obstacles can be daunting, choosing the right solution can reduce risk, time to market, and program cost. This white paper aims to outline those challenges and propose a winning solution.
