Canberra, Australia (SPX) Dec 31, 2012


D-VEX also supports open defence standards, including the Motion Imagery Standards Profile (MISP) and STANAG 4609.

General Dynamics Mediaware has delivered two video capture and exploitation D-VEX systems to the Australian Army, enhancing the distribution of mission-critical, actionable intelligence among Australian troops and coalition forces. The systems have been integrated into the Shadow 200 Tactical Unmanned Aerial System (TUAS) operating in Afghanistan.

D-VEX is a versatile and portable video exploitation system that captures and manages full motion video from airborne surveillance platforms. Designed for in-theater operations, the system also works with commercially-available compact mobile hardware, such as a laptop.

"D-VEX provides the Australian Army with next-generation tools for real-time and forensic analysis of airborne surveillance video," said Michael Manzo, director of General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems' Geospatial Solutions Imagery Systems division.

"It will enhance and streamline the Army's ability to derive timely, relevant and accurate geospatial intelligence from the Shadow TUAS."

With the ability to record and index video with metadata to derive real-time actionable intelligence, D-VEX provides users with detailed forensic analysis through its comprehensive search and mark-up capabilities.

D-VEX also supports open defence standards, including the Motion Imagery Standards Profile (MISP) and STANAG 4609.

"Managing the thousands of hours of video collected by the Shadow 200 TUAS presented the Army with a sizable data processing and analytics challenge," said Dr. Kevin Moore, chief technology officer of General Dynamics Mediaware.

"With the D-VEX solution, the video archive is easily searchable, enabling analysts to identify, tag and analyze critical events in real-time for consistent, reliable and standards-compliant results."

Australian-based General Dynamics Mediaware, part of General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, is a leading global provider of digital video technology.
