SAN DIEGO, Calif., 13 June 2006. L-3 Communications Advanced Products & Design (L-3 Advanced Products & Design), a division of L-3 Communications Corporation, has unveiled a new solution that combines the VideoScout video management and exploitation system and the Rover III 300 receiver manufactured by L-3 Communication Systems-West.

The integrated system enables mobile military personnel to capture, manage, and share video intelligence. VideoScout with L-3's Rover III portable system receives and displays video from multiple unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and other sensor sources. Forward personnel can exploit that video data to create actionable, intelligent video while "on the move."

"Warfighters can now add 'knowledge' to captured video by annotating, making clips, extracting images and sharing intelligent video assets that are more timely, actionable and relevant to their mission," says Larry Vernec, senior vice president of marketing and strategic business development at L-3 Advanced Products & Design.

VideoScout can synchronize and archive video with selected UAV metadata to create video intelligence by associating time and location with both motion and still imagery for search and retrieval.

Video can be saved and searched by location, date/time, or user notes, and analyzed to support pre- and post-mission planning and analysis.

The Rover III 300 tri-band receiver works with L-band, C-band, and Ku-band based platforms, including the Predator, Shadow, Dragon Eye, and Litening Pod UAVs, and other joint coalition assets.
