General Dynamics rugged display for combat vehicles can run classified and unclassified data

OTTAWA, 30 May 2012. General Dynamics Canada in Ottawa is introducing the SD8010 rugged display for ground combat vehicles, which can run classified and unclassified information on one display. The ability to run classified and unclassified information on the same screen frees vetronics designers from installing several different displays for classified and unclassified information inside the tight confines of armored combat vehicles such as main battle tanks, armored personnel carriers, self-propelled artillery systems, and military utility vehicles.

OTTAWA, 30 May 2012. General Dynamics Canada in Ottawa is introducing the SD8010 rugged display for ground combat vehicles, which can run classified and unclassified information on one display.

The ability to run classified and unclassified information on the same screen frees vetronics designers from installing several different displays for classified and unclassified information inside the tight confines of armored combat vehicles such as main battle tanks, armored personnel carriers, self-propelled artillery systems, and military utility vehicles.

"Military vehicles typically require separate computing assets for classified and unclassified information systems, creating a drain on space and power," explains David Ibbetson, general manager of General Dynamics Canada.

The SD8010 smart display features multiple independent levels of security/safety (MILS). Using the General Dynamics-developed Trusted Embedded Environment (TEE), the SD8010 can interface and process information at multiple security levels.

The SD8010 display is convection cooled, has touch control, several video and audio input channels, streaming and snapshot video capture, several vehicle-bus interfaces, wireless communications, VoIP capabilities, embedded ground-based GPS receiver application module (GB-GRAM), several I/O ports and a solid-state hard drive.

General Dynamics rugged smart displays are installed on U.S. Army Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP), Stryker, and Bradley ground combat vehicles. General Dynamics Canada is part of General Dynamics C4 Systems in Scottsdale, Ariz.
