Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) December 18, 2006
Trident Systems (http://www.tridsys.com) releases a white paper describing applications of its new rugged wearable wrist display, including threat warning support for situation awareness/tracking and streaming video on the move.
The Military requires the ability to maintain real-time situational awareness, Command and Control (C2) and Combat Identification (CID) of both friendly and enemy troops on a battlefield. A troop's need for electronic information about opposing forces, neutrals and noncombatants, terrain maps, spot reports and messages is essential to situational awareness. This can also include the collection and dissemination of intelligence information such as imagery, Global Positioning System (GPS) information, threat detection information, or direct downlink of live video streams from an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to units on the ground. The use of a body-worn monitoring device would provide ground troops with immediate and efficient access to this information without having to consult a laptop computer. Mapping, GPS and intelligence information could also be displayed without hindering the operator's responsiveness or hand mobility. The ability for troops to be continually aware of their surroundings, while efficiently operating in threatening or hostile environments, improves their situational awareness, lethality, and survivability.
