Miniature rugged video tracker for embedded computing in UAVs and man-portable devices introduced by GE

ORLANDO, Fla., 1 May 2011. GE Intelligent Platforms in Charlottesville, Va., is introducing the ADEPT3000 small automatic miniature video tracker for embedded computing applications such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and man-portable devices where size, weight, and power consumption (SWaP) are primary design concerns. GE demonstrated the device this past week at the SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing conference in Orlando, Fla. The ADEPT3000 provides high-quality single-target tracking with standard-definition analog video signals.

ORLANDO, Fla., 1 May 2011. GE Intelligent Platforms in Charlottesville, Va., is introducing the ADEPT3000 small automatic miniature video tracker for embedded computing applications such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and man-portable devices where size, weight, and power consumption (SWaP) are primary design concerns. GE demonstrated the device this past week at the SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing conference in Orlando, Fla.

The ADEPT3000 provides high-quality single-target tracking with standard-definition analog video signals. The device measures 24 by 35 millimeters and weighs six grams -- about the size of a microprocessor -- and operates as a stand-alone unit on printed circuit boards.

The miniature video tracker uses on-board serial links to communicate with many different kinds of platforms, and comes with intuitive menu-driven software, GE officials say. It is rugged enough for aerospace, defense, and other harsh-environment applications. Its environmental specifications are subject to mounting.

GE has designed the ADEPT3000 as a versatile image-processing subsystem with common video and communications links. For more information contact GE Intelligent Platforms online at www.ge-ip.com.
