D-VEX

Tactical Full Motion Video Exploitation

To improve read-time situational awareness and strengthen post-mission forensic analysis and intelligence reporting, when in theatre, warfighters require a deployable, tactical system to capture and manage Full Motion Video (FMV).

D-VEX is designed for in-theater operations where ease-of-use and low system overhead are vital.It is a next generation tactical video exploitation system for the real-time and forensic analysis of full motion video from airborne and/or unmanned surveillance platforms. D-VEX provides operators with easy-to-use tools for enhancing and analysing live and recorded video with integrated situational awareness map displays. Together with its data management and archiving capabilities and recently integrated target detection capabilities, it provides operators with a complete operational workflow solution.

Now with newly integrated automated target detection features enabled from Sentient and Chemring Technology Solutions, D-VEX makes it even easier fro analysts to detect, analyse and report on targets and events in maritime, search and rescue and battlefield environments.

Hardware Configurations

A D-VEX system can be delivered in a physical configuration to suit your requirements. D-VEX systems have been operationally deployed in:

    • a small form-factor on ruggedized laptops (known as TAC-MAAS in the US region)
    • a mid-sized form-factor in ruggedized server racks suitable for in-theater operation
    • a large form factor for use in operational facilities
    • and can be scaled to other form-factors as required

 See the table below for examples of form factors available with the D-VEX system.
