Barco to Exhibit Latest Technology at International Armoured Vehicles
LONDON, UK –– Visualisation solution specialist manufacturer Barco are set to exhibit their latest technology at International Armoured Vehicles, taking place 1 – 5 February 2010, at the ExCel Centre, London.
The challenging nature of 21st century warfare has resulted in operators being confronted with an increasing amount of information in support of making mission critical decisions. In a dynamic, real-time scenario, there is also a danger of information overload for an operator attempting to consume and interpret such large volumes of imagery. As a result, Barco’s technology provides better situational awareness, better response time for operators and decision makers, and increased survivability.
Barco are set to showcase their new IP-based 360° awareness solutions for armored vehicles, which gather information from a collection of sensor sources and present this to the operator. Visualisation tools and programmable Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) make it easy for the operator to focus both on the big picture and on a specific area of interest. User-friendly screen layouts combined with technologies like stabilisation and sensor fusion allow rapid recognition of information in the blink of an eye. This is an essential requirement as a result of operators in current challenging security environments being confronted with an increasing amount of information in support of making mission critical decisions.
Barco will be joined by 90 other exhibitors at International Armoured Vehicles, which is the only international exhibition and conference dedicated exclusively to the armoured vehicle community. The event brings together senior military and industry experts, providing opportunities to gain expert insights on armoured vehicle trends, global procurement activity and lessons learnt from the battlefield, as well as to conduct business with the world's leading vehicle, system and component manufacturers and smaller specialist suppliers.
