Chemring and General Dynamics to Develop Real-Time Video Intelligence System


Australia: General Dynamics Mediaware and Chemring Technology Solutions have partnered to combine General Dynamics Mediaware's next generation, end-to-end tactical video exploitation system, D-VEX, with Chemring's moving target indicator system VTA (Visual Target Analysis) 2.0. The award-winning D-VEX system with the VTA 2.0 plug-in capability reduces the risk of operator fatigue by automatically alerting the operator to moving vehicles and personnel in video streams from manned or unmanned airborne sensors.

"General Dynamics Mediaware is committed to continuously improving the capabilities of D-VEX to solve the complex data challenge of extracting actionable intelligence from thousands of hours of video footage. Chemring Technology Solutions' unique approach in VTA 2.0 gives D-VEX the enhanced ability to track and map vehicle and personnel movement, providing the operators and analysts who are working under extreme pressure with mission-critical actionable intelligence in near real-time,” said Kevin Moore, Chief Technology Officer, General Dynamics Mediaware. D-VEX is a video-exploitation system that captures and manages full-motion video, providing operators with intuitive tools for enhancing, streamlining and analyzing live and recorded video. When coupled with Chemring Technology Solutions' visual target analysis software, mission operators and analysts can quickly transform raw video data into actionable intelligence, saving time, money and resources.

"Our visual target analysis system, VTA 2.0, shifts the focus away from pixels and towards specific activities and movement, aiding operators in the difficult task of maintaining real-time situational awareness. This product collaboration with General Dynamics Mediaware's D-VEX's intelligent video technology will further enable surveillance platform owners to extract significant value from the large volumes of full motion video captured from sensors deployed in the field,” said Greg Moore, Roke Business Sector Manager, Chemring Technology Solutions.
