The RuggedCONNECT Smart Video Switcher is a highly integrated standalone device that acquires, processes, and displays real-time video sensor data for vehicle-based local situational awareness (LSA) and driver vision enhancer (DVE) applications. The RuggedCONNECT Smart Video Switcher includes eight analog composite inputs supporting RS-170/NTSC/PAL and two independent DVI-D single link displays. Support for GigE Vision and Def Stan 00-082 streaming protocols on dual 1 Gbps Ethernet channels make it the perfect solution to implement networked, open standard, interoperable video management systems as demanded by GVA, NGVA, and VICTORY standards.

Combining the high-performance networking capabilities of RuggedCONNECT with the powerful GPU resources of the NVIDIA Jetson TX2i, designers can easily add application-specific image processing and graphics overlay decision-support capabilities to reduce cognitive burden and increase mission effectiveness. The compute power of the TX2i supports applications such as image fusion, 360 degree stitching, map/ terrain overlay, and image enhancement to more demanding convolutional-neural-network based threat detection and classification. Plug-in AI solutions for tank identification and driver awareness further enhance battlefield awareness and decision support.

RuggedCONNECT’s highly configurable architecture can host multiple mini-PCIe and M2 daughter cards, enabling fast development of products to address various sensor and display interfaces, such as HD-SDI, CameraLink, VGA, STANAG-3350, or custom sensor/display requirements. This same architecture enables Pleora to add more interfaces, support a different mix of interfaces, additional network interfaces, and general communications ports. For situations with extreme SWaP-C requirements, Pleora can reduce the number of interfaces and overall enclosure size.
