General Dynamics has designed two types of embedded computing and display systems that are meant to work in rugged military vehicles.
The PE8000 computers and DS8000 displays use Intel quad-core processors as well as virtualization and cooling technology, General Dynamics said Tuesday.
“Differing vehicle requirements and user functions often translate into mismatched and incompatible computers and displays aboard fleets of combat vehicles on the battlefield,“ said David Ibbetson, vice president of General Dynamics C4 Systems’ international business.
Ibbetson added the subsidiary intends for the products to help military customers meet platform requirements.
The U.S. Army has implemented the computing technology in armored vehicle fleets such as the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected, Stryker and Bradley.
Each system is also built with audio and video input channels, vehicle-bus interfaces, wireless communications, GPS, voice over Internet Protocol and video capture features.
