HUNTSVILLE, Ala. March 24, 2012. GE Intelligent Platforms announced the IVD2010 and IVD2015 Rugged Intelligent Vehicle Displays. They are designed for deployment in harsh environments such as tanks and other ground combat vehicles for applications including embedded training, 360 degree situational awareness, terrain visualization and FBCB2 (Force XXI Battle Command Brigade and Below) as well as commander and gunner display consoles.

Both integrate processing capabilities to deliver a complete, self-contained, COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) display solution with a high TRL (Technology Readiness Level). The IVD2010 and IVD2015 also include thermal management capabilities for deployment in confined spaces.

The 10.4 inch screen IVD2010 and 15 inch screen IVD2015 XGA (1,024 x 768) resolution smart displays both incorporate an Intel Core2 Duo processor operating at 2.26GHz and a 96-core NVIDIA GT 240 GPU (graphics processing unit). Together with 4GBytes of SDRAM3 memory and four simultaneous video inputs, this equips them to handle sophisticated graphics applications such as picture-in-picture and symbology overlay, stitching multiple videos into a single panorama and allows high performance GPGPU applications to be deployed directly on the display unit.

Both the IVD2010 and IVD2015 include LED illumination for sunlight readability and MIL-STD-3009 NVIS (Night Vision Imaging System) compatibility; a multitouch resistive touchscreen; and a high quality optical stack-up with toughened glass.

Optionally available for each Intelligent Vehicle Display are a 10 Gigabit Ethernet interface, allowing them to integrate directly into the backbone networks of future vehicles, and encrypted solid state disk storage modules (up to 256GBytes) with fast purge capability for security. Additional options include CANbus/MilCAN and MIL-STD-1553 interfaces.
