Stryker ECP program
GDLS, headquartered in Sterling Heights, Michigan, selected KITS as the supplier of the Driver’s Situational Awareness Display (DSAD) and the Commander’s Situational Awareness Display (CSAD) on May 28, 2013. The contract includes design, development, fabrication, test and performance of the DSAD and CSAD for the Stryker ECP Program. Serial production of the displays will be conducted at the Kongsberg facility in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.
"This highly competitive bid for the CSAD and DSAD was a perfect fit for KITS, whose CORTEX Displays meet or exceed the most demanding maritime and combat vehicle requirements. Extremely rugged and waterproof, the high resolution CORTEX displays also feature a high contrast ratio, which not only reduces viewer fatigue but makes them the most sunlight readable displays on the market today," Says Mr. Åsmund Groven, President of KITS.
