The Benefits of Integrated Video Management

Building today’s advanced airborne Video Management Systems (VMS) involves the complex and frustrating task of integrating various components that have been sourced from a mix of vendors into a workable solution. A fully integrated VMS provides a better approach that maximizes operator usability and system flexibility while ensuring optimal interoperability. Curtiss-Wright specializes in tailoring exact VMS solutions to meet clients’ platform needs, and has delivered the most reliable and fully-featured VMSs in operation today, including those used by law enforcement agencies across the UK and Europe. Integrated VMSs not only reduce cost and allow for scalability, but also provide a level of flexibility and interoperability that would be unobtainable using components from multiple vendors.

Thinking Outside of the Box: Optimizing System Design With Embedded Expertise

Increasing technical requirements and tighter budgets provide challenges to integrators designing optimal system solutions for SWaP-constrained spaces. Dialoguing with highly knowledgeable COTS vendors early in the design process provides integrators with alternative systems engineering perspectives that result not only in better SWaP-optimized solutions, but reduced cost and schedule times. As a leading COTS vendor, Curtiss-Wright is exposed to a myriad of design problems every day, and has unmatched expertise in properly addressing constraints and providing innovative approaches to any design issue. Allowing our COTS hardware experts to mitigate SWaP-constraints early on in the embedded system design process results in highly-optimized re-architected solutions, and eliminates cost, weight, and schedule penalties.
