According to foreign media reports, Pleora Technologies has launched a sensor-reinforced network platform that can help manufacturers and system integration reduce end users' cognitive burden, improve mobile efficiency, and meet interoperability and scalability requirements, and meet the size , Weight, power consumption and cost (SWaP-C) requirements, suitable for military sensitive real-time imaging applications. Pleora Technologies is the world's leading supplier of high-performance video interfaces.

Pleora will show its RuggedCONNECT Network video processing unit (NVPU) and real-time network technology. The company's connected sensor switching technology has been designed for applications such as local situational awareness (LSA), C4ISR, remotely controlled weapon station (RCWS), driver vision enhancement (DVE), and panoramic surveillance, and Pleora is still evaluating its technology Application in emergency service vehicles and railway systems.

Traditionally, military imaging systems use point-to-point interfaces to connect sensors, processors, and displays. This method will increase system and integration costs, redundancy, and failure issues, while challenging future scalability. More importantly, it will lead to complex and difficult-to-operate vehicle electronics (vehicle electronics) systems, thereby increasing vehicle weight.


contrast, RuggedCONNECT NVPU converts sensor data from multiple sources into a standard data set, which can be transmitted to the endpoint through low-latency, multiplexed Gigabit Ethernet (GigE). With this scalable and modular RuggedCONNECT platform, manufacturers can design intuitive camera-to-display systems and turn them into an interconnected architecture in a low-cost manner. Recording unit. The RuggedCONNECT platform can meet the video performance requirements stipulated in Def Stan 00-082 (VIVOE), STANAG 4697 (PLEVID) and MISB ST 1608, and thus can be designed to comply with STANAG 4754 (NGVA), Def Stan 23-009 (GVA) and VICTORY Guidelines for automotive electronics platforms.

Migrating to a unified sensor and display network allows manufacturers to significantly reduce the hardware and other equipment in the vehicle and deploy simpler, cheaper cables to meet cost and weight requirements. By connecting all devices to the same infrastructure, sensor data can be transmitted to any combination of mission computer and monitor. Vehicle occupants can view the required information on a single display and can immediately understand changes in the surrounding environment. RuggedCONNECT has dual Ethernet interfaces and passive bypass to ensure reliable performance and protection from the threat of a single point of failure.

Combining the high-performance video network function of the RuggedCONNECT platform with the powerful GPU resources of NVIDIA Jetson TX2i, designers can easily add image processing and image overlay decision support functions for specific applications to reduce cognitive burden and improve task efficiency. Addable functions include image fusion, 360-degree stitching, map / terrain overlay, image enhancement, and threat detection and classification based on convolutional neural networks.
