Full 360 degree Situational Awareness Under Closed Hatches
Ferranti Technologies offers its mature Helmet Mounted Display (HMD) technology for use in Armoured Fighting Vehicles. IronVision generates an image that enables the crew to ‘see through’ the vehicle’s armour, providing 360 degrees of situational awareness, by day and night. This allows the crew to overcome inherent visibility limitations, improving mission efficiency and safety.
The system transmits real-time, zero-latency, high-resolution video to the commander and/or driver display, providing them with a natural, bi-ocular, coloured, HD conformal view of the vehicle’s surroundings, together with relevant symbology and C4I data. At the click of a button, the video feed can be switched to display weapon sights, UAV or any other video source.
An intuitive, Conformal Image of the World Outside
IronVision uses pre-loaded terrain and obstacle information combined with smart, intuitive symbology and data anchoring, to display information required, simultaneously to crew members. Leading HMD technology and advanced distortion-correction algorithms eliminate visual distortions and resulting motion sickness often caused by the moving Armoured Fighting Vehicle.
By presenting the crew with a single, unified, intuitive image of the world outside the vehicle, IronVision assists the crew handle and interpret data from multiple sources, allowing them to utilise their situational awareness more efficiently and to focus on the successful completion of the mission.
Enhanced Training Realism
IronVision can also be used with our advanced Augmented Reality Integrated Training System – ARTIST – to provide a ‘true-to-life’ training system.
