Who was the first to see the enemy — he controls the situation on the battlefield. To see means to win.
Ukrainian tech startup LimpidArmor for about two years engaged in the development of a system of upgrading heavy armored vehicles – Land Platform Modernization Kit. The team prepared for the third version of a prototype of your product and have run a test on the tank T-64. Testing conducted earlier this year on a tank range “Desna”.
If the first two versions of the prototype, the team presented under the working title Circular Review System, it has been necessary to change the name to one that is more consistent with the functional characteristics of the product. It was decided to call a product Land Platform Modernization Kit.
Similar projects are being developed in many countries of the world, for understanding of the project, watch a short video presentation of the helmet IronVision (Israel).
With up to eight cameras with optical stabilization, which is mounted on the housing of the armored vehicle, and a private software there is a “bonding” streaming video in real-time. This is the video operator, and sees a 360-degree panorama of the environment.
“”Our development is not just the helmet augmented reality, which allows operators to see tanks on the screen AR glasses Microsoft HoloLens full panorama of the world outside the armored car, and therefore the enemy to control the situation on the battlefield. We offer a complete solution, capable to visualize almost all the processes associated with the management and the exchange of information between operators of terrestrial transport, and to reduce losses from friendly fire,” — explains the reason for the renaming of the development Mikhail Grechukhin, CEO LimpidArmor.”
However, this possible Land Platform Modernization Kit does not end there. The system allows to display also the telemetry of all systems of the combat vehicle, task statuses, goals, interactive hints, placement of friendly and hostile units. Interestingly, Land Platform Modernization Kit can be connected to the fire control system and to receive data from the UAV. The advantage is the fact that the system can be flexibly configured according to customer requirements. In other words, development can upgrade any type of ground vehicles (both military and civilian). In addition, it corresponds to NATO standards.
