The US Army's Vehicle Optic Sensor System (VOSS) was voted among the five finalists for the 2008 Defense Technology Innovation Award program announced by Defense Update magazine. The program highlights mature projects promising to bring profound change to military operations, warfighter capabilities and operational conditions. Developed and produced by Florida based GyroCam Systems and widely deployed with US forces in Iraq and Afghanistan VOSS was one of 20 finalists selected by the magazine.
"Gyrocam has responded to the urgent IED threat in theater by supplying hundreds of mast mounted multi-sensor camera systems for the VOSS program to assist in IED detection" says Greg Rose - Program Manager at Gyrocam Systems, "The warfighter depends on our industry leading reliability and performance to provide safe standoff detection and situational awareness for critical route clearance and surveillance missions." VOSS employs the Gyrocam ISR 300 multi-mission stabilized sensor system that integrates advanced thermal imaging, high resolution color video, and next generation night vision sensors into one package to help in the detection, identification and elimination of dangerous roadside threats.
"What attracted our interest were deliverables - this program evolved efficiently, providing lifesaving service to the warfighter in time and within budget constraints." said Tamir Eshel, Defense-Update editor in Chief. "GyroCam Systems matched the accelerated fielding of the MRAP expediting fully integrated VOSS systems in theater within weeks." Defense Update VOSS Nomination Details
