CANBERRA, Australia, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- General Dynamics Mediaware
received recognition at this year's Australian Defence Magazine industry
awards, taking home the Defence Materiel Organisation (DMO)/Industry Team of
the Year Award for Excellence in Collaboration in the Sustainment and Logistic
Support category. The award acknowledged General Dynamics Mediaware's efforts
in the successful fielding of its D-VEX tactical video exploitation systems to
the Australian Army in 2012.
Integrated into the Shadow 200 Tactical Unmanned Aerial System (TUAS) and
currently deployed in Afghanistan by the Australian Defence Force, D-VEX
enhances the distribution of mission-critical, actionable intelligence among
Australian troops and coalition forces by capturing and managing full motion
video from airborne surveillance platforms. A versatile and robust video
exploitation system within the General Dynamics video exploitation family of
products, D-VEX is an ideal off-the-shelf solution for in-theater operations
where ease-of-use and low system overhead are vital.
"We are very honored to be recognized for our work with the Defence Materiel
Organisation and Australian Army on this project," said Dr. Kevin Moore, chief
technology officer of General Dynamics Mediaware. "This was a true
collaborative effort. From the implementation and successful integration of
D-VEX, to the testing and operational evaluation of the solution, our strong
working relationships with the DMO, Defense Science and Technology
Organisation and 20^th Surveillance and Target Acquisition Regiment helped
ensure that the right system was delivered on time and on budget."
With the ability to record and index video with metadata to derive real-time
actionable intelligence, D-VEX provides users with detailed forensic analysis
through its comprehensive search and mark-up capabilities. D-VEX also supports
open defence standards, including the Motion Imagery Standards Profile (MISP)
and STANAG 4609.
