US Army Researchers Shrink Mine Protected Vehicle Display; Brian Wilson Comments

army vehicleU.S. Army researchers have developed a display system that centralizes the soldier’s surveillance view aboard a medium mine protected vehicle during counterexplosive missions.

The Army Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center worked with Product Manager Assured Mobility Systems to shrink multiple MMPV displays into a single screen, the Army said July 13.

“Every single soldier will be able to see what is on the enabler because you have the ability to toggle between all the different video feeds that are on that truck,” said Brian Wilson, systems integration team lead for the Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center’s route clearance vehicle team.

Wilson added that his team tasked the Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate to work on a system demonstrator of the unified display technology.

The Army Test and Evaluation Command has begun testing the display system at Yuma Proving Ground in Arizona.
