C2UK and Lockheed Martin to Demonstrate Common Operating Picture Capability at SOFEX 2014
AMMAN, Jordan, May 6, 2014 – C2UK and Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] will demonstrate that the integration of two sophisticated vehicle-mounted systems can bring significant improvements to battlefield decision making.
At the SOFEX 2014 trade show in Amman, Jordan, the C-LITE Gen3 Tactical Mission System and Gyrocam sensor system will be integrated onto a Polaris MV850 all-terrain vehicle, and will show that critical mission data from multiple locations can be transmitted in real time to the warfighter and command center.
During the demonstration, the C-LITE will provide a common operating picture using a live video feed from the 9-inch Gyrocam sensor system. The systems’ combined data will allow for the tracking, identification and discrimination of friendly and hostile forces, as well as messaging and beyond-line-of-sight communications from the C-LITE through an encrypted wireless link. The C-LITE/Gyrocam data will enable field commanders to detect insurgent activity or assess the battlefield from strategic or limited-access locations.
The C2UK C-LITE is the first Tactical Mission System with an i7 4th Generation core processor that allows users on the battlefield to share key mission data in real time and create an effective common operating picture to aid operational decision making. Embedded with the C2UK Scimitar software, C-LITE delivers a proven off-the-shelf operating capability.
Gyrocam sensor systems are combat proven in reconnaissance and route clearance missions to provide users enhanced situational awareness from standoff distances in low visibility and darkness. Gyrocam sensor systems include high-resolution color, night vision and advanced thermal sensors in a stabilized gimbal that can be mast-mounted on virtually any ground, airborne, maritime or expeditionary platform to provide unobstructed, 360-degree surveillance and threat detection capability.
