EUROSATORY, Paris, France -- Visualization specialist Barco has been selected by Thales Optronics, Guyancourt, France, for the supply of 200 10-inch vetronics displays to be used inside the VBL (Vehicule Blinde Leger) armored vehicles of the French army.
Operators of the VBL vehicle will use Barco's displays for observation and reconnaissance purposes. The contract fits into the VBL SOURCE program (Vehicule Blinde Leger dote d'un Systeme Optronique Unique de Renseignement), which provides for a complete upgrade of the vehicle's electro-optical observation and detection system.
Barco's 10-inch vetronics display was chosen by Thales because of its optimum image quality and high level of ruggedness. For this program, Barco adapted the display's I/O connectivity to meet the VBL vehicle's specific observation system requirements. The contract further includes Barco's easy-to-use HMI software toolbox ACTEV, which allows implementing the end-user's desired functionality into the vetronics display system.
Barco's vetronics display system has been designed for observation and visualization on board armored vehicles. The system combines a 10-inch SVGA (800 x 600) Panel Module (PM-1126) with a Video Control Module (VCM-1101), connected by means of a single cable, the VECTORLINK. Thanks to the split design, the VCM-1101 can be placed in a remote location, requiring less depth.
First deliveries for the VBL SOURCE program will take place in September 2006.
